This news comes as a bit of a shocker. Maurice Jones-Drew’s offseason long hold out with the Jacksonville Jaguars was sparked by his demands for a new long term contract. Sources close to MJD weren’t shy about telling anyone who would listen that this standoff would last at least into the first couple of weeks of the regular season. If the tweets from up above are correct, Jones-Drew will be ending this stalemate without having his contract demands met. The prospect of losing game checks was surely a motivating factor in getting MJD to put an end to the standoff.
