Maurice Jones-Drew Holdout: Jaguars RB Needs To Drop Diva Attitude

Maurice Jones-Drew is being a diva, and it's time to give it up. At least that's what Gene Frenette at the Florida Times-Union says about the Jacksonville Jaguars holdout.

Frenette prods 'Jones-Diva' and says he becomes that way with the slightest media criticism, while also imploring him to drop the act in favor of the workhorse, win-at-all-costs Jones-Drew that made him Jacksonville's main (or only) offensive star for the past few years. Frenette goes on to say:

"At some point, Jones-Drew will report to the Jaguars, but he implied Thursday at a car dealership appearance that he's expecting this impasse to break when the team makes him an offer. The telling remark was when he said: 'If I ever get a call to come back.'

Why does he need a call? There's two years left on his contract. Perhaps Jones-Drew can talk some sense into Jones-Diva. ..."
