Several Teams Monitoring The Maurice Jones-Drew Situation

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports that “several teams” are watching to see how the situation between the Jacksonville Jaguars and RB Maurice Jones-Drew plays out.

Cole adds that a trade could happen depending on whether or not things get any worse in the coming weeks.

Mike Freeman of CBS Sports reports that “there’s no chance” that the Jaguars will trade RB Maurice Jones-Drew.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew is “open to being traded” following the recent comments made by new owner Shad Khan.

Earlier in the day, Khan mentioned that the franchise would be willing to move on without him.

Train is leaving the station. Run, get on it,” Khan said, via Gene Frenette of theFlorida Times-Union.

Schefter adds that there are “no signs of letting up” in regards to his holdout and contract demands. Jones-Drew’s hold is “fully expected to extend into the regular season.”

This situation just got infinitely more interesting, as one of the best running backs in the game could be available.

According to CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco, there is a belief that Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will end his holdout in the near future.

“Feeling inside Jaguars locker room is Maurice Jones Drew shows up soon,” tweets Prisco.

If this proves to be the case, it will be interesting to see what happens during the offseason regarding Jones-Drew’s pursuit of a new, long-term contract. This would obviously be a huge shot in the arm for the team if he shows up sooner rather than later.  With Blaine Gabbert showing signs of progression this preseason, adding Jones-Drew, along with rookie Justin Blackmon’s potential to be a big-play receiver, to the mix would give the Jaguars a much improved offensive unit this season.
