Maurice Jones-Drew blinked once the game checks and regular season were set to begin. According to Adam Schefter, Jones-Drew will report to the Jaguars today (Alfie Crow of Big Cat Country was the first to mention rumors of Jones-Drew return). Jones-Drew was looking for a new extension with two years remaining on his deal, knowing that at age 29 (in two years) he will be not likely to get one. His only chance, though, was to extend it into the season Emmitt-style, so one has to wonder why he did this if he wasn’t willing to push it that far.
I guess he really didn’t want to participate in the preseason. We’ll see if the Jaguars pursue the fines that is their option, based on him missing camp while under contract.
