Maurice Jones-Drew Holdout: Running Back 'Angry' With Jaguars, According To Report

With a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that Maurice Jones-Drew would not report on time to training camp with the Jaguars that was later corroborated by other reporters, Jones-Drew's holdout will officially cut into training camp starting on Thursday.

How long it will last is an answer that remains to be seen, but according to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, it could certainly be a lengthy holdout as he says that the three-time All-Pro is "angry" with the Jaguars. While Jones-Drew's desire for a new contract is likely justified with just two years left on the contract he signed in 2009, to be "angry" would imply that he is much more underpaid than he currently is.

With Gene Smith and Shad Khan both saying that the running back needs to honor his current contract, it is highly unlikely that Jones-Drew even gets the opportunity to talk about a new contract with the team this offseason, let alone receive one.
