ANIMATED: Maurice Jones-Drew Mimics LeBron James Chalk Toss

The Jacksonville Jaguars were the first to get on the board Sunday in Cleveland, when Maurice Jones-Drew took it in on a six yard run. To celebrate the score, MJD mocked the Cleveland fans and mimicked former Cavalier and native Ohioan LeBron James's signature pregame chalk toss. As you can imagine, mocking the home crowd with a move made famous by perhaps the most hated man in their city did not go over well, but was amusing for Jags fans. An animated gif of the celebration is below:

The Jags running back has 35 yards on 9 carries in just over a quarter of play in Cleveland. But the highlight of the day will certainly be his end zone celebration after putting the Jags up 7-0. The move prompted a chorus a boos from Cleveland's notorious Dawg Pound.
