If the Jaguars don't want you, maybe it's time to hang up your cleats. When Maurice Jones-Drew became a free agent after the 2013 season, Jacksonville decided to let him test the open market.

Instead of exploring his free agent options though, MJD almost decided to do something else: retire.

"For awhile, I was contemplating retirement because I just didn't feel like I had it anymore," Jones-Drew told the Los Angeles Times. "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."

MJD missed 10 games in 2012 and underwent foot surgery after the season, an operation that had him contemplating retirement before 2013. That's means Jones-Drew has vocalized his retirement thoughts twice in the past 12 months.

Don't worry though Oakland, you're not getting a retirement-inclined running back who only signed with the Raiders to collect a paycheck. MJD says he's rededicated himself to football.
