Report: Maurice Jones-Drew prepared to hold out through training camp
According to Steve Wyche of the NFL Network, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is ready to hold out through training camp to send a message.
“Maurice Jones-Drew wants to be with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he’s prepared to hold out through training camp – if not longer — if the team won’t restructure his contract, sources with knowledge of the situation said Thursday,” reported Wyche.
At the end of the day there’s no way Jones-Drew is going to win his battle with the Jaguars. It’s simple, as much as he doesn’t like his contract, he won’t get paid unless he shows up and plays.
