Jets interested in Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew

The New York Jets are looking to bolster their running game in the next season, and a report from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News indicates they’re looking at adding Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew

From TFY Draft Insider:

The New York Jets are returning to a more run oriented offense in 2014 in an attempt to exploit their strengths and lessen the load on Geno Smith. I’m told the game plan is to try and keep Smith under 20 passes per game. Part of the plan is to keep continuity on the offensive line, which is why they’ve made resigning right tackle Austin Howard a priority.

    Mehta as your “Source”? Ha – Ha!! He’s got no real sources, he just posts crazy rumors to be relevant and get attention so he can keep his job.
    Shefter and Mort and Brian Coz are the guys you want to hook your wagon to…. even Jake Steinberg has better sources than Mehta!
