There isn’t a running back in the league who achieved more last season with less talent surrounding him that MJD. With the Jaguars beset by poor play at the quarterback and wide receiver positions, tight end Marcedes Lewis failing to build upon his career season in 2010 and no solid backup due to a season-ending injury to Rashad Jennings, MJD was the only reliable option in the Jacksonville’s offense. Hence, his career high in touches with 386 (343 runs and 43 receptions). By season’s end, he had totaled 1,606 yards on the ground (a career high) and 374 receiving yards as well as 11 total touchdowns. He will once again be the focal point of the team’s offense in 2012, provided he shows up. Just three years into a five-year contract signed in 2009, MJD is asking for a new deal and Jaguars general manager Gene Smith has said that he doesn’t plan to renegotiate. Having carried the ball more than any other running back over the past three years and with a holdout a possibility, MJD carries a fair amount of risk heading into 2012. Even with that risk, he still rates as just outside of the Big Three at running back.
