“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.
