The Jacksonville Jaguars have been receiving phone calls about the availability of running back Maurice Jones-Drew in a trade, according to a report by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, but the team is not "actively" trying to trade him.

Jones-Drew floated the notion through his agent that he would be open to a trade on Tuesday afternoon after some comments made by Jaguars owner Shad Khan at the press conference announcing the Jaguars London series of games. On Wednesday morning, Jones-Drew quickly turned around on those comments as his agent told Steve Wyche of NFL Network that Jones-Drew would like to "bridge the fractured relationship" that was caused by Khan's comments.

Still, the likelihood Maurice Jones-Drew is traded during the 2012 NFL season is slim, to none. The Jaguars would have to field an offer from a team that would be willing to give up considerable compensation and give Jones-Drew the contract he's looking for. The real thing to look for however, is the possibility Jones-Drew is traded to another team after the 2012 season.
