After Jaguars owner Shahid Khan intimated that Maurice Jones-Drew was open to a trade on Tuesday, the running back fired back on Wednesday morning that he is still interested in fixing his fractured relationship with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
According to Steve Wyche, Jones-Drew is willing to bridge the "fractured relationship ... The issue is who is going to extend the olive branch if there is going to be a reparation, because Jones-Drew, he is further entrenched in his holdout -- he does not like the situation, the fact that Khan is discussing publicly what was supposed to be handled in private."
It is not surprising that last year's rushing leader is willing to repair his relationship with the Jags, considering he is under contract to play with them for the next two seasons and seems to have very little leverage in negotiations.
Both parties are all too aware that Jones-Drew will have to return to camp soon to have any chance at playing in the Jaguars' season-opener, which is in less than 20 days away.
For the latest on all things Jacksonville Jaguars, head over to Big Cat Country and join the discussion.
