Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew’s holdout is likely to last a long time.
The Jaguars and Jones-Drew, who wants a new contract, aren’t talking. The team wants him to honor the final two years of his current contract.
The Jaguars are allowed to fine Jones-Drew $30,000 a day, which means his fine meter is at $300,000 — $210,000 for the first week in camp and $90,000 for the three-day mandatory minicamp.
HC Mike Mularkey, who hasn’t met Jones-Drew, has declined to say if he plans to fine the running back if he returns.
MJD is a top 5 RB if he reports, but this is a tough situation to call. Those owners who do draft Jones-Drew need to be absolutely sure to handcuff Rashad Jennings.
