Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew floated the notion that he was open to being traded on Tuesday evening via his agent Adisa Bakari, but has now quickly backed off of that stance.
"After speaking to his agent, Adisa Bakari, he's also open to bridging what is becoming a more fractured relationship because of the comments of Khan, not only Tuesday, but late last week," NFL Network's Steve Wyche said on "NFL AM" Wednesday morning. "The issue is who is going to extend the olive branch if there is going to be a reparation, because Jones-Drew, he is further entrenched in his holdout - he does not like the situation, the fact that Khan is discussing publicly what was supposed to be handled in private."
As mentioned yesterday, the chances of the Jaguars trading Jones-Drew are relatively slim, so putting it out publicly that he "is open to being traded," only makes matters worse for the Jaguars running back.
Wyche also noted that there hasn't been any dialogue between the two camps since Khan's train remark on Tuesday, and that some of Jones-Drew's teammates have contacted him after Khan's remarks.
