Maurice Jones-Drew Skips Voluntary Workouts

The Jacksonville Jaguars will hit the field again on Tuesday for another set of voluntary workouts. The team will be without kicker Josh Scobee, who has refused to sign his franchise tag, but the team will also be without their biggest offensive weapon.

Running back Maurice Jones-Drew skipped the first set of voluntary workouts, with rumblings that he's looking for a new contract after leading the NFL in rushing in 2011, and he's not expected on Tuesday when the team gets back out on the field. Currently, Jones-Drew is preparing for the season down in Miami, as he does every year.

Jones-Drew is expected to report to EverBank field when the workouts become mandatory, with or without a new contract to go with his impressive season last year. With the worst passing offense in the league, Jones-Drew led the NFL in rushing with just over 1,600 rushing yards.
