Don't try to tell Maurice Jones-Drew that he'll carry a heavier burden in the Jacksonville Jaguars' offensive backfield next season. As far as he's concerned, all Fred Taylor's release and subsequent free-agent signing with the New England Patriots means is a change in the cast with which Jones-Drew will share the load.
"Being the No. 1 guy is one thing," Jones-Drew said. "My thing is being the guy that helps the team win, and in '07 (when the Jaguars went 11-5), that's what we did. Fred ran the ball. When he got tired, I came in and I contributed to helping us win games. As long as everybody takes that role, we'll be fine.
