Maurice Jones-Drew Likely To Miss Some Training Camp, Says Fred Taylor

When Maurice Jones-Drew was drafted by the Jaguars in 2006, Fred Taylor was finishing his final years with the team. Despite spending just three seasons together, the pair became friends and apparently work out with each other during the summers.

In an interview on 1010XL in Jacksonville, Taylor spoke to Jeff Prosser about Jones-Drew and his current contract dispute with the Jaguars that has withheld the 2012 rushing champion from all offseason activities with the team so far. While all indications are that the Jaguars will not be negotiating a new contract with the star running back this offseason, Taylor believes Jones-Drew's hold out is not going to end anytime soon.

Taylor told Prosser that he believes Jones-Drew is unlikely to report to camp on time due to "hurt pride" that stemmed from a miscommunication between the two sides.

All Jaguars players are required to report to training camp on Thursday, July 26.
