Social Snapshot: Drewval




The Social Snapshot is typically a weekly article, but special occasions call for special Social Snapshots. Maurice Jones-Drew's retirement announcement is easily one of those special occasions. As soon as it was announced that the Jaguars' all-time leader in touchdowns would end his career where it started, the social posts started flowing. They did not let up on the day of the announcement either. On the same day of his retirement press conference, Jones-Drew was kind of enough to take over the team Twitter handle to answer fan questions.
