“I have to work to get my job back,” said Jones-Drew, per Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. “That’s all it is. Nobody has ever given me anything so I’m used to it. I like it because the competition is going to be great.”
Considering that his holdout did little good in terms of netting him the long-term extension that he was seeking, it is probably a smart move to do what he can to endear himself to the new coaching staff. As long he is able to demonstrate that he’s still an effective player, it seems likely that he will reclaim his role in the team’s offense at some point during the season.
