Former NFL running back Clinton Portis is on Maurice Jones-Drew's side when it comes to the holdout situation. Portis thinks highly of MJD and says the Jaguars need to pay the man.
Here is some of what Portis had to say to NFL AM:
"I really think he's the last every-down back left. I think Maurice Jones-Drew plays the game the right way, and if there was one player I had to pick, there are a lot of amazing running backs in the NFL for what they are asked to do, but Jones-Drew reminds me so much of a lot of the situations that I was in. I think he is a tough, fierce player, and I really wish they would have given him his money. I think the holdout is fair when you look at what he's doing for that organization."
