Unfortunate that his prime was spent on lackluster Jaguar teams. Always enjoyed watching him play

I had wet dreams about what this kinda talent would've been on any other team.

Will he sign a one day contract with the Jags?

I wish he would have joined the Raiders earlier and also been able to finish his career on a better note with a decent last season.

This makes me feel old. MJD was an absolute fantasy beast in his prime.

Being a Jags fan, I often felt bad that his prime was wasted. I believe the only time he made the playoffs was in his second year, when they got throttled by the Pats.

MJD wasn't Fred Taylor, but was a great player in his own right. You knew, watching him play his style, that it wasn't going to last long.

At least he got one last payday from Oakland.

Good luck, MJD. I hope you have an after football plan.

First time I was introduced to MJD was against the Washington Huskies when he had 322 total yards and 5 TD's when he was a sophomore. My jaw was on the floor watching that kid.

Life of a RB.

Looked like a for sure future HOFer 4 years ago.

Now his cards are going to be virtually worthless in the coming years.

Sad to see him leave on such a down note. SHOUT OUT to fellow Member RAW and his impressive collection of MJD. If you havent seen it. You need to find it and view it. Such dedication and hard work.

Sad to hear. I just picked up his 2013 Five Star Quotable. Hated him at UCLA (because he was good) and it's a shame he didn't really get a good team to play with.

All started with his hold-out 3 years ago. At least we'll always have him pancaking Sean Merriman https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0gEFpzeNqs

Always been a fan - from his days at my arch rival De La Salle HS to my alma mater UCLA.
