The Jaguars have expressed an interest in getting Maurice Jones-Drew back in their squad, and the player himself is eager to return, reports ESPN.

'The Jags' are believed to offering a two-year deal worth $10 million to bring back the man many believe to be the best pass-blocking backs in the league.

Jones-Drew said on his possible return: "I want to be here. It's a fun environment. It's different than I've ever been a part of. It works."

MJD, who could help break in a new quarterback this season has three games remaining on his five-year deal worth $31 million.

Despite the intent from both parties to get a deal done, the Jaguars are aware that it needs to be at the right price.

The 30-year-old returned from injury this season and carried 208 times for 719 yards and five touchdowns. Although The Jags were ranked last in the league for total offence and rushing, General Manager Dave Caldwell believes MJD is the right man to improve the team.

Jones-Drew said on the past: "Back when I was young and doing some wild stuff, we had older guys that would be like, 'All right, calm down."

As he continues to boast about his improved ways, the temptation for The Jaguars to sign him up must increase with every sentence.
