Maurice Jones-Drew Holdout: Jaguars RB To Skip Mandatory Mini-Camp

After Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said that he had no plans to renegotiate Maurice Jones-Drew's current contract on Monday, the running back will not participate in Jacksonville's mandatory mini-camp. As ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Twitter:

Since this is a mandatory mini-camp, Jones-Drew is expected to be fined $10,000 for missing the first day, $20,000 for missing a second day and $30,000 for missing three days in row. That's a total of $60,000 in fines if he skips out on the entire mini-camp.

Jones-Drew is in the fourth year of a five-year, $31 million contract. He's scheduled to make $4.95 million for the 2012 season.
