Maurice Jones-Drew may shop around the free agency pool. The Jaguars say they are willing to let him search other options because they do not plan to sign him before the season starts in March.
However, G. M. David Caldwell noted that he wasn't "pessimistic" about the prospect of Jones-Drew returning for 2014, Oehser reported.
Since entering the NFL in 2006, Jones-Drew has carried 1,804 times for 8,071 yards and 80 TDs and has caught 335 passes for 2,873 yards and 11 TDs in regular-season play. He will be 29 in March.
Jones-Drew rushed for 803 yards and five TDs on 234 carries this season for the Jaguars, for whom he has played his entire career.
