Time is not on MJD's side

Personally, I don't agree with MJD being a no show and do agree with the fact he wants to negotiate his contract. You would think though with a new coaching staff, the more ideal thing to do is to negotiate while still attending team activities. By missing vital practice time, this creates an even bigger problem, because if he chooses to hold out during training camp, I don't expect him to have productive season like years past.

Not because MJD will be out of shape, but because when he returns he will be learning a new offense and a very complex offense at that. Right now he is missing a lot of installment of the new offense and if he reports mid training camp or at the end, I fear he may not fully catch on to the offense till mid season. Its like the rookies coming in last year trying to learn the playbook with no off season.

Im just saying, this is bad for the Jaguars, because they don't have his talent on the field and bad for MJD, because he is missing valuable time to learn the intricacies of the offense. With a new offensive staff, MJD has now given coaches a chance to look at other personnel and I'm not saying Rashad Jennings is MJD, but you don't win games anymore by handing the ball of 30 times. Balance my behind! The Giants, Packers, Saints, and Patriots sling the ball.

To conclude, time is not on the side of MJD and the longer he waits, the more he jeopardizes his chances of having a good year and possibly proving his worth. If Rashad has a good year, it may prove MJD is dispensable and why not get a first or second rounder for MJD. Again, I don't want to see MJD go, but this holdout doesn't look like its going to end good if it continues any further.
