The Maurice Jones-Drew holdout has ended and the Jaguars star running back is expected to report to camp on Sunday, according to multiple reports.
Big Cat Country cites a source that said Jones-Drew was going to wait until after the preseason to end his holdout, since he was waiting on a deal that was never coming anyway.
According to the source, Jones-Drew was not going to report until the preseason was over if he was not going to get a new deal and now that the Jaguars have played their final preseason game, he will now report to the team and get his playbook. Jones-Drew will need to hit the playbook and begin learning the offense and blocking assignments if he wants to be ready for the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey has said Rashad Jennings will be the starting running back in Week 1, since Jones-Drew hasn't been around all of the preseason, but it will be interesting to see how everything unfolds this week.
