Maurice Jones-Drew had the best season of his career in 2011.
He led the league in rushing with more than 1,600 yards and carried the load as the only offensive weapon for the Jags.
But Jones-Drew does play the most brutal position in football and with a league-high 343 carries last season, his career will not last too much longer at that pace.
Jones-Drew is a very strong back, but was one of only two backs to carry the ball more than 300 times. Michael Turner was the other one, but he only carried it 301 times.
To help take some of the load off Jones-Drew could be Bernard Pierce from Temple.
Pierce, at 6'0", 218 pounds, is a back that can be used in goal line and short-yardage situations. But he can also be used throughout the field as well.
Pierce rushed for 27 touchdowns in 2011, a Temple school record.
A pickup like Pierce would not only be good in extending the career of Jones-Drew, but also helping the team by having not one, but two very capable, young running backs on the roster.
It may hurt Jones-Drew's numbers a bit, but if it results in him playing longer, and an even better rushing attack overall, his individual numbers should not matter that much.
