Maurice Jones-Drew Holdout: Jaguars Owner Has 'No Regrets' Over How Situation Was Handled

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan is taking the way he handled the Maurice Jones-Drew holdout in stride, and he believes that he is making the right decision in how he has handled the situation.

When Khan was asked about how the team has handled the Jones-Drew situation, he responded by saying, "I have absolutely no regrets.''

General manager Gene Smith was asked multiple times if the Jaguars would be trading Jones-Drew, as well as what would happen if he holds out for an extended period of time into the regular season. The response to each question was always that Jones-Drew is part of the team.

The Jaguars are already moving on, and have named Rashad Jennings as the starting running back for their season opener. The Jaguars are in for the long haul, and from all indications have zero intent on giving into Jones-Drew.
