ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - Maurice Jones-Drew wasn't in the mood to get drawn into a debate over whether he or Darren McFadden should get the starring role in the Raiders' backfield.

It's a question the veteran running back has faced numerous times already, so he put an emphatic end to the discussion when it came up again when Oakland opened its three-day mandatory minicamp.

In Jones-Drew's mind, Oakland has no choice but to use both.

The topic created a bit of buzz around Oakland after general manager Reggie McKenzie made the curious decision to re-sign McFadden in the offseason, and then got Jones-Drew off the free-agent market two weeks later with a three-year deal.

Five years ago the duo was considered among the best in the NFL. Injuries and a lack of steady production changed that perception dramatically.
