No holdout for Maurice Jones-Drew

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

In 2012, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew made a play for a new contract. It didn’t work.

This year, he plans no such effort.

He told Adam Schein of SiriusXM NFL Radio that the veteran tailback who had most of his season marred by a foot injury will neither hold out nor even ask for a new contract.

“I went to them last year,” Jones-Drew said. “It didn’t work out. I’m not going to reach out to them because, you know, I just feel like I tried that last year [and] it didn’t work. If the Jaguars want to do a new deal I’m more than open to talk. I’m not going to say I don’t want to go there. I’ve grown up there. This is where I started. I want to win a championship there. That’s what I want to do."
