The Jacksonville Jaguars traded away their best veteran offensive lineman in tackle Eugene Monroe to the Baltimore Ravens earlier this month, and they may be about to deal their best offensive players in Pro Bowler Maurice Jones-Drew will eventually get traded. General Manager David Caldwell said earlier this month that they would listen to any offers for Jones-Drew, and now Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports they’ll indeed try to move him, but probably will do so unsuccessfully:

"It’s widely knows the Jaguars are very open to moving Maurice Jones-Drew, according to league sources, but his high salary and paltry production has resulted in scant interest for an aging back, even one with his pedigree."


Expect to see Jones-Drew in a lot of trade rumors for the next two days until the NFL trade deadline has passed. On the season, Jones-Drew has 103 carries for 416 yards and a lot of disappointed fantasy football owners.
