Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that he’s not going to hold out again.
“I’m not gonna hold out again,” he said with conviction, on his day off Tuesday.
Then Jones-Drew slightly back tracked and said that he could end up changing his mind.
“I don’t think so, I wouldn’t do that. I don’t think I would. I mean, I’m saying that now — I don’t know how I’ll feel a couple months from now. But right now, I mean, I did what I thought I had to do. It didn’t work. Oh well. You know what upsets me, though: No one knows me on a personal level in this league. There are a couple players who know me on a personal level. So for people to make assumptions about me as a player, you have to know me as a person.”
Next season will be the final year in which Jones-Drew is under contract with the Jaguars, He could end up deciding to hold out again if he doesn’t get an extension between now and then.
