Maurice Jones-Drew actually considered walking away from the game after last seasons difficulties in Jacksonville.  The former Jags star running back told the L.A. Times he considered retirement after averaging a career-low 3.4 yards per carry in 2013 followed an injury-plagued 2012 campaign. 

“For awhile, I was contemplating retirement because I just didn’t feel like I had it anymore,” Jones-Drew told the Los Angeles Times earlier this month. “But that wasn’t the case. My trainer helped me get back in shape and gain that foundation that I’d lost with the surgery.”

Jones-Drew admitted he started to question his own ability after seeing himself on tape.

“I watched the same tape and I’d say, ‘Man, why’d I do this? Why didn’t I do that?’” he said. “Part of it was, just physically, I wasn’t able to do some of the same things I’m used to doing.”
