JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Jacksonville Jaguars want running back Maurice Jones-Drew back next season.
Jones-Drew is doing all he can to make it happen.
He's sharing carries, playing through injuries and complaining about nothing. He's all in, fully committed to what's happening in Jacksonville under coach Gus Bradley, general manager Dave Caldwell and owner Shad Khan.
Jones-Drew says, ''I want to be here. It's a fun environment. It's different than I've ever been a part of. It works. It takes time to build anything. It's starting to turn around for us, and we're starting to play well. That's exciting.''
It also might keep Jones-Drew from testing the free-agent market.
Jones-Drew has three games remaining on a five-year, $31 million contract he signed in 2009. He's earning $4.95 million this season.
