Maurice Jones-Drew Ends Holdout, Reports To Jaguars

Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew is back with his team after holding out for a new contract over the past 38 days. At least one of his teammates appears to be happy to see him:

Jones-Drew is going to need to work. Considering Mike Mularkey is able to fine him up to $30,000 a day - plus $60,000 for a three-day, mandatory minicamp -- Jones-Drew could be out $1.2 million this season. He is scheduled to make $4.45 million in 2012 and $4.95 million next year.

Here is some insight from Big Cat Country on Jones-Drew jumping right into the action:

During the preseason there was a three-day waiting period before a player could practice in full with pads, such as we saw when first-round pick Justin Blackmon finally signed his contract in the preseason. That rule goes away after the first preseason game, so it is no longer in effect. Jones-Drew will practice on Monday, in full, bearing he is in shape.
