Maurice Jones-Drew Expected In Camp Sunday, Per Reports

Maurice Jones-Drew will join the Jacksonville Jaguars, possibly as early as Sunday, after spending 38 days holding out for a new contract, a source tells Big Cat Country's Alfie Crow. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the same news.

From BCC:

According to the source, Jones-Drew was not going to report until the preseason was over if he was not going to get a new deal and now that the Jaguars have played their final preseason game, he will now report to the team and get his playbook. Jones-Drew will need to hit the playbook and begin learning the offense and blocking assignments if he wants to be ready for the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.

Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey has said Rashad Jennings will be the starting running back in Week 1, since Jones-Drew hasn't been around all of the preseason, but it will be interesting to see how everything unfolds this week.
