Maurice Jones-Drew Says He Would Like To Stay With Jaguars

Maurice Jones-Drew's contract situation is moving forward "day by day," as he put it in on Thursday during a promotional appearance at a Jacksonville car dealership. He also said he'd like to finish his career with the Jaguars, but that's if the business side of things pan out.

Here's a quote from Jones-Drew:

"It's a part of the business, but I'd rather be here," Jones-Drew said Thursday via WTEV-TV. "I'd rather stay here with my team, my family. I talk to my teammates every day, my kids go to school here, I'm rooted here in Jacksonville with the NFL. I'd love to end my career here in Jacksonville, but part of the business is sometimes you can't do things you want."

Jim Irsay's tweets, never lacking for entertainment, made some speculate on whether MJD would be traded within the division to the Indianapolis Colts, but we just have to wait and see on this one.
