Maurice Jones-Drew retires from NFL

Two down seasons in a row have forced running back Maurice Jones-Drew to walk away from the NFL.

Long regarded as one of the best runners of his area, Jones-Drew was a star ball carrier as well as a pass catcher out of the backfield for the Jacksonville Jaguars for much of his career.

In 126 career games he scored a staggering 79 touchdowns and finishes with 8,167 yards rushing for hsi career. The 2014 season was a downer for MJD as he appered in 12 games for the Oakland Raiders but managed just 96 yards on 43 carries failing to score even one touchdown.

Jones-Drew has already been seen on different media platforms and should have little problem landing a gig there if he chooses.
