MJD Holdout: Is This Maurice Jones-Drew's Last Year With The Jaguars?

Big Cat Country writer Alfie Crow wonders if this season will be Maurice Jones-Drew's last with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Because the running back has held out all of training camp, Crow wonders if Jones-Drew has hurt his long-term sustainability in the NFL

The Jaguars are learning a completely different offense from last year's under new head coach Mike Mularkey. Crow wonders if this will hurt his ability if he decides to end his holdout before the regular season begins.

While Jones-Drew had all of five carries in the preseason in 2011 and lead the NFL in rushing, he's got to learn an entirely new offense under an entirely new coaching staff for the 2012 season, which is going to affect not only his on-field production but his playing time while he gets acclimated. As such, Jones-Drew's stats are going to suffer which are going to force his future earnings to suffer

Rashad Jennings has already been announced as the week one starter for the Jaguars. Crow says that Jones-Drew needs to show up by this weekend for the coaches to feel comfortable enough to play him in week one.
