Jacksonville Jaguars Roundup

NFL Confidential: Teaching, learning the pitfalls for NFL rookies | jacksonville.com

It’s hard to imagine Adam Jones, once known as Pacman, becoming a role model. Yet Jones seems to be intent on changing his image and warning young players to avoid the pitfalls that were so costly to his life and career. He even asked to speak to the rookies at the NFL’s annual Rookie Symposium near Cleveland last week. Jones attended the one in 2005 as a rookie, but admits he didn’t learn from it.

Gene Frenette: Jones-Drew contract destined to become distraction | jacksonville.com

Maurice Jones-Drew keeps saying in carefully crafted interviews with national media that his contract issue with the Jaguars is just business, that he has no desire to negotiate through the media. That's the right play, knowing general manager Gene Smith won't make adjustments on a deal that was front-loaded for him to collect $21.85 million in the first three years. Though he has minimal leverage, Jones-Drew is counting on the "I'm-the-face-of-the-franchise" card to pressure the front office into moving him back up the top-10 salary ladder at his position. Good luck with that.
