RB Maurice Jones-Drew's holdout is not a big concern for the Jaguars' new HC Mike Mularkey.
"I don't drive home or sit in my office worrying about it," Mularkey said. "I don't waste the energy."
Mularkey hasn't even met Jones-Drew. Nor has running backs coach Sylvester Croom.
Not a handshake. Not a visit. Nothing. There have been a few calls, but that's it. Nothing else. And that's on Jones-Drew, the supposed leader of this team. Shouldn't he get to know his new coach at some point? After all, Mularkey isn't making the money calls.
"I don't know him at all," Mularkey said.
And that's the danger in Jones-Drew's holdout. How do you know what you're missing if you don't know what it is?
The Jaguars and owner Shad Khan are dug-in on this one, even among the catcalls from many in the media that the organization is doing him wrong.
Owners who do draft MJD need to lock up Rashad Jennings, who has seen his ADP climb from the 15th round to the 13th at some mock draft sites. He would be a solid RB2 if Jones-Drew misses any games.
