Maurice Jones-Drew Won't Report To Jaguars Training Camp, According To Report

The Jacksonville Jaguars report for training camp on Thursday, but star running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not be there, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The two sides have been squabbling over a new contract, which Jones-Drew is pressing for. The Jaguars, however, have dug in their heels and say they refuse to negotiate a new contract, as Jones-Drew still has two years remaining on the five-year, $31 million deal he signed prior to the 2009 NFL season.

Jones-Drew is seeing running back after running back cash in and sign new deals, and is looking for one more pay day after leading the league in rushing in 2011.
