What is Maurice Jones Drew's Trade Value?
 
I have a good feeling he could be on his way out this offseason with Jaguars probably gutting the front office from GM down and I could really see the new GM trading off MJD and I was just wondering what people think his Value is as of right now?

FUNBUNCHER 11-18-2012 05:25 AM

He's a pint size RB on the wrong side of 25. Lucky if you get a 3rd for him.

Bengalsrocket 11-18-2012 05:59 AM

I think a 3rd or multiple lower picks would be pretty fair on both sides of the deal, but I think he has the most value sticking with the team, regardless of who is fired next season.

AntoinCD 11-18-2012 06:12 AM

For a guy who will be 28 next year in his 8th year, who averaged in and around 300 carries the last three years and has battled injuries this year, if any GM gives up a 3rd for him he should be fired on the spot. At most I would give up a 5th. He has 2, maybe 3 years left

Depends on the team. If I have a team that is primed to make a Super Bowl run like Green Bay and could use a threat in the running game, I wouldn't mind giving up a third round pick for him. Probably.

Yep. And that's where the "value" part of the question is. His value is decided among the teams that want him - not an asking price no team could refuse.

Green Bay don't utilise a back like MJD though. I know McCarthy likes to run the ball simply to keep defenses honest, but Rodgers is the guy in that offense and there is no way that would change. If they want to run the ball more I would be tempted to put Cobb in the backfield and run him on draws and sweeps.

There really, to me anyway, isn't any Superbowl contender who could justify using a 3rd on MJD. Maybe Denver to pair him with McGahee and maybe Pittsburgh simply due to injury. However other than that I don't see it

Matthew Jones 11-18-2012 08:42 AM

I'd trade a second round pick if I were a contender like Green Bay picking late in the round. Jones-Drew is one of the best running backs in football and could add a dangerous dimension to any pass-oriented offense. Even if Jones-Drew is only productive for three more years, even one championship would be worth it.

Well Green Bay hasn't had a back like MJD in their recent history though. If he was there, I'm sure they'd feel a lot better about their chances pounding the rock. The offense would of course still run through Rodgers. Or rather, their passing game would be the focal point.

People need to remember back to the Patriots days, when they acquired Cory Dillon. They never relied on a very strong running game, but they went out and got Dillon, and amped up their running game.

wogitalia 11-18-2012 08:34 PM

It's not like MJD is a scrub as a receiver either, guy is one solid little blocker and shifty option out of the backfield.

Think he'd be a great fit for the Packers for a 3rd rounder.

I also think he could be a great get for a team like Indy to help out Luck and help to ease him through it a bit more, 3 years of MJD back there would be a great asset, imo.

phlysac 11-18-2012 10:40 PM

This is the same back that lead the entire NFL in rushing last season by 250 yards. Now he's washed up? Interesting.

He's 27, but yeah I wouldn't call him washed up. He could still help a lot of teams.

What? 3rd round pick for one of the best running backs in the league, and you would fire the GM?

I realize this is a draft site, but a lot of people here overestimate draft picks, especially lower round ones... If i were a team like the Colts I would gladly give up a 2nd round pick, same as the Packers.

Modern day microwave era effect. If you're 27 you're automatically old news.

FUNBUNCHER 11-19-2012 12:18 AM

Why would the Colts give up a 2nd-3rd rounder for MJD??
RB isn't the reason Indy isn't a SB contender.

Brothgar 11-19-2012 12:49 AM

MJD has at most two years left. RBs go down hill fast after they hit 30 so your market instantly excludes teams who won't be super bowl contenders within 2 years as well as teams who already has an established runner that would render the need to pay MJD unwise.

Buffalo Bills
Miami Dolphins

New England Patriots
New York Jets
Baltimore Ravens
Cleveland Browns
Pittsburgh Steelers

Cincinnati Bengals
Houston Texans
Indianapolis Colts
Jacksonville Jaguars
Tennessee Titans

Denver Broncos
Kansas City Chiefs
Oakland Raiders
San Diego Chargers

Dallas Cowboys
New York Giants
Philadelphia Eagles
Washington Redskins
Chicago Bears
Detroit Lions

Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings
Atlanta Falcons
Carolina Panthers
New Orleans Saints
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Arizona Cardinals
St. Louis Rams
San Francisco 49ers
Seattle Seahawks


way I see it there are only 4 or 5 teams even interested in MJD regardless of the cost as far as draft picks.

bigbuc 11-19-2012 12:59 AM

Teams that should look into trading for him. Jets, Pack, Denver...

Jags should get a 2nd rounder.... But could take a 3 and 5 deal

If the rams lose Steven Jackson this off-season, why not MJD since they have two 1st round picks the next 2 years

I guess I question if they are really Super Bowl Contenders within two years time? I guess they could be with another great draft but I don't think they would be in the market for more than a 3rd.

ashleywilliam 11-22-2012 06:52 AM

Teams that should look into trading for him. New York Jet

Eazy Picks 12-01-2012 10:01 PM

if im a GM of a good team in need of a running back, id def be putting in calls about MJD. He has essentially taken the season off and may have his value somewhat lowered, but he is still an elite back and should be able to come back strong next year.

Vox Populi 12-01-2012 11:01 PM

If I'm a team I wouldn't even bother trading for a RB on their 2nd contract. Since 2000 the only teams that had all-pro running backs were the 2004 Patriots with Corey Dillon and the 2000 Ravens with Jamal Lewis. Any other highly ranked running game was a result of the offensive line (New Orleans 2009, New York 2007, Pittsburgh 2005/08). Spend the money on a different position.

This argument has been had so many times on these boards. I still think that the argument is over blown here, but I definitely agree that trading for a running back to be the "final piece" is a bad idea because giving up draft picks/players and then giving up a big contract to an established running back is an over investment in the position.

Heres the last 12 super bowl champs ranking it total rushing yards and their top rusher for the year that they won.

2011: NYG: 32nd: Ahmad Bradshaw
2010: GB: 24th: Brandon Jackson
2009: NO: 6th: Pierre Thomas
2008: PIT: 11th: Willie Parker
2007: NYG: 4th: Brandon Jacobs
2006: IND: 18th: Joseph Addai
2005: PIT: 5th: Willie Parker
2004: NE: 7th: Corey Dillon
2003: NE: 27th: Antowain Smith
2002: TB: 27th: Michael Pittman
2001: NE: 13th: Antowain Smith
2000: BAL: 5th: Jamal Lewis

Ness 12-01-2012 11:10 PM

I'm assuming you meant that the only teams that have had All Pro runningbacks that have won the Super Bowl.

Schit would Denver look phenomenal if they added MJD.
