Jones-Drew could take Broncos to SB this year!!
 
One of the best RBs in the NFL is available now!! Per Adam Schefter.

In light of Jaguars owner Shad Khan's recent public remarks, Jacksonville's RB Maurice Jones-Drew is now open to being traded, per source.

Offer a 1st and lets go win the SB!!

Wow, I would be so excited having Jones Drew, Manning and McGhee. Wow, Denver would be very dominant on offense and Doom Vonwolfe would be sacking those QBs on defense.

A 1st for a running back in his 6th year? Pass...Offer a 3rd and Moreno and be done with it.

A must read article.

You know screw it, I'd be OK with that. This team has to be in a win now mindset. Roll with Willis/Pocket Hercules, Hillman and tell Moreno, Ball and whatever else scrub backs are on the team to piss off.

His time table is better than Manning's. If Denver wants to win 2 SBs in the next 3 years they are going to have to do something drastic.

And he is a top 5 RB.

High pick for a RB? Entering his 7th year? Who wants a big payday? When we just spent a high pick on a RB with a similar build?

If this team makes a desperate moves "to get over the hump" it will be next year, when they better know what the biggest need is in the Peyton offense.

I think McGahee and Hillman could equal MJDs production this year.

Like a Mike Anderson/Tatum Bell in '05. Move along, if the price is a 1st he isn't worth it.

Mogulseeker 08-21-2012 06:54 PM

Jones-Drew is an elite back, but I always put RBs as overvalued. Given what we'd have to do to bring him in, I don't want to do that. If we're going to give up a first day pick, and OG or LB would do just fine.

Mogulseeker 08-21-2012 06:56 PM

MJD's name isn't in the title, so I don't blame you one bit.

errand 08-21-2012 06:57 PM

Anytime you can upgrade your team, you do it...if we can acquired arguably one of the best RB's in the NFL, get him.

pricejj 08-21-2012 07:01 PM

Bienemy recruited MJD to come to CU, but when Bienemy went to Cal, so did MJD...what could have been.

I heard Big Al talking about this subject on the radio earlier. MJD would be nice...kinda like TD in his prime.

Dude averaged 4.7 ypc last year...I'd think about it.

I would like to see Hillman play in a game 1st. Week 2 and still nothing from him, I wonder if they don't try to move him to PS.

With the mind set of win now I would at least offer the 3rd and Moreno for him as mentioned above but I would be willing to give up a 2nd round pick if they wanted it. Only real problem is finding the money to pay MGD. He would be a great asset to the team, would be great catching passes out of the backfield and if Willis goes down like he did last year MGD could carry the load.

I would love to see this happen but I don't think it will.

We will likely have to watch KM dance his way around the back field for KNo gain rather than watch MGD take it to the house from 65 out.

Absolutely not.

It's funny but Denver has been 1 piece away for the past decade. Don't mortgage our future more than it already has been.

Don't need another RB in such a pass heavy system.

Just to play devil's advocate here, MJD is a perfect fit for Manning - one of, if not the best blocking and pass-catching back in the game.

Don't mortgage our future?? You do realize Denver paid $96 million to a QB that 3-5 years left which is about how much time Jones-Drew has.

He led the NFL in rushing last year.

John Elway told Manning that the reason he won two SBs is because Denver got Terrell Davis. AND he promised Manning he would get him that same running game.

Well boys, here it is.

Besides 1/2 of all 1st round picks flame out anyway.

Denver owes it to Manning to TRY to go get this guy. They have to try.

Yes he is a good back, everyone knows that. Not the piece to put this team over the top.

Did you read the part where I said more than it already was?

Guess not

Not the right guy!
