Jaguars Haven’t Discussed A New Contract With RB Maurice Jones-Drew

Vito Stellino of the Florida Times Union writes that a team spokesman mentioned that the Jacksonville Jaguars have yet to discuss a new contract with RB Maurice Jones-Drew.

Jones-Drew has made the decision not to attend the team’s OTA’s, which new head coach Mike Mularkey insists are voluntary.

I wish he was here,” said Mularkey. “He knows we wish he was here. I think his teammates have talked to him about it but it’s a personal decision, and there’s nothing I can do about it. I think if I spend a lot of energy on worrying about that, that’s not going in a good direction for the guys that are here. I want to show them the positive energy that I have, and I don’t want to let anything be a distraction from the guys that are here.”

Jones-Drew has two years remaining on his contract that will pay him $4.45 million and $4.95 million respectively. There’s still a chance that he could make an appearance at the Jaguars mandatory three-day minicamp in June, but there’s certainly no guarantees.

——————-

Tania Ganguli is reporting on Twitter that Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not attend this week’s OTAs.

Jones-Drew did not take part in last month’s voluntary workouts either, reportedly dissatisfied with his contract, along with kicker Josh Scobee, who the Jaguars used the franchise tag on and won’t be at the OTAs either.

Jones-Drew has two years remaining on his five-year, $30.95 million contract that he signed in 2009. He is set to make $4.45 million this season.

Don’t be surprised if he doesn’t attend next month’s mandatory minicamp, either.
