Maurice Jones-Drew had four empty stalls to his right and two to his left. And dozens more scattered across the locker room.

His message invigorated players, but many of them struggled with all the empty seats. The Jaguars parted ways with several veterans, including longtime starters Greg Jones, Daryl Smith and Rashean Mathis.
