Jaguars Can Fine Maurice Jones-Drew Heavily For Missing Training Camp Time

It still hasn't been revealed whether or not Maurice Jones-Drew will miss some time during training camp, but if he does it could hit him square in the wallet. According to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, the Jaguars will have the option of fining the three-time All-Pro running back as much as $30,000 per day missed if he chooses not to report.

With Jaguars general manager Gene Smith essentially saying there is zero chance of Jones-Drew getting a deal, the possibility of a fine could convince the running back to report on time or it could continue to stoke a fire between the two sides that could extend into the future beyond the 2012 offseason.

All eyes will be on Jones-Drew on Thursday when the Jaguars report to camp, that is, if they can find him. If he's not there, all eyes will divert to the Jaguars as they will have to make the next move.
