    Post Jaguars to let Maurice Jones-Drew test free agent market

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10...st-free-agency

    The Jaguars are going to let running back Maurice Jones-Drew test the market in free agency and then decide whether to try to re-sign the second-leading rusher in franchise history.

    It also appears the Jaguars are going to keep quarterback Blaine Gabbert, the team's first-round draft pick in 2011, around for the final year of his contract -- unless they draft a quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick.

    General manager David Caldwell said Tuesday he didn't envision re-signing Jones-Drew, who has rushed for 8,071 yards and holds the franchise record with 81 touchdowns in eight seasons, before free agency beings in March. Caldwell also said he'll wait for Jones-Drew to get an offer from another team, then decide whether to match it.

    Jones-Drew said Monday that he wants to finish his career in Jacksonville, but the decision will come down to money. He also said he has a number in mind but would not elaborate. Caldwell would not speak on that, either.

    "I think he'll leave that up to his representation in terms of finding him the best value for his deal," Caldwell said. "I'm not pessimistic at all about it. I think he's earned the right to go to free agency. He's been a great player in this organization and he's had a great career and I think he's earned the right to go see what his value and his market is.

    "It's our right to decide if we want to match it and bring him back."

    I saw someone yesterday tweet, "The Jags letting Maurice Jones-Drew test free agency is like a prison letting a prisoner test freedom."

    Good for him. Hopefully he has more tread on the tires than Steven Jackson did
