Maurice Jones-Drew is out to prove that he’s still one of the best running backs in the NFL.   Jones-Drew says he signed with Oakland because he felt they gave him the best opportunity to get significant carries.

Jones-Drew told Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle that he’s in Oakland to compete, but he believes that he and Darren McFadden can be one of the best 1-2 running back punches in the NFL.

^ Jones-Drew thinks his running style and Darren McFadden’s complement each other well as far as sharing carries goes “but first …
“But first, we’re going to compete,” Jones-Drew said. “Let’s see if someone can win the job. I expect us both to be better coming out of training camp because of that competition.
“It’s going to be fun. There’s no reason we can’t be one of the best 1-2 punches in the league.”

Jones-Drew said that his foot feels “phenomenal” one year after surgery and that his goal for 2014 is to show that he’s still the explosive runner he was earlier in his career.
