Maurice Jones-Drew Will Report On Time, Predicts John Clayton Of ESPN

Jacksonville Jaguars fans holding their breath over a holdout by running back Maurice Jones-Drew need not worry says one expert. ESPN's John Clayton said Monday on Sports Center that MJD will report before the first week of the season. Clayton also ventured a prediction that MJD would be in training camp on time.

Also worth noting is that Clayton said MJD will report without a new contract.

"I think he now realizes the team is going to do nothing as far as giving him anything on a contract. He has two years left on the contract. And even though he's outperformed that contract, the organization feels as though they've come back, they've given him a deal even before he was a starter, and taken good care of him. ... There's no chance of him getting a new deal."

Jones-Drew skipped the team's spring practices.
