Report: Maurice Jones-Drew to meet with Raiders
The New York Daily News reported earlier this week that four teams were interested in Jones-Drew. None of those four teams — the New York Jets, New England Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Miami Dolphins — was Oakland. But the Raiders are Jones-Drew's hometown team, and ESPN.com's Adam Schefter quoted an unnamed source saying there's a "good chance" Jones-Drew ends up in Oakland.
The once-dominant Jones-Drew has seen his performance decline dramatically over the past two years in Jacksonville. Jones-Drew played in just six games in 2012, while dealing with a left foot injury. He played in 15 games in 2013, but he averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry.
The two disappointing seasons, however, followed three seasons of complete dominance. From 2009-11, he ran for at least 1,300 yards in each season and rushed for 28 touchdowns.
Jones-Drew reportedly believes he is still worth more than $3 million per year. MOCK GM: Trades that should happen this offseason >
