Maurice Jones-Drew’s Holdout Looks Likely To Extend Into The Regular Season

ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned on this morning’s SportsCenter that Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew seems likely to extend his current holdout into the regular season.

There are no signs he’s coming in anytime soon,” said Schefter. “… It certainly looks like this is going to go into the start of the regular season, and MJD will not be there for the Jaguars’ regular season opener. Unless something changes between the two sides, and there are no indications that’s happening anytime soon.”

Jacksonville recently mentioned that even if Jones-Drew was to report to camp in the coming days, Rashad Jennings will be their starting running back for Week 1’s game against the Vikings. Jones-Drew not only has very little leverage in terms of negotiations, but he’ll need time to get acclimated to the team’s new offensive system, before he’ll eve have a shot regaining his starting role in the team’s offense. Jacksonville has maintained that they have no plans to trade him, but a holdout that lasts into the season could at least force them to consider the idea.
