No holdout coming this offseason, says Maurice Jones-Drew

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Despite carrying the ball only 86 times in 2012, Maurice Jones-Drew finished the season as the leading rusher for the Jaguars.

Following a lengthy holdout during the 2012 offseason that dominated the Jaguars headlines, Maurice Jones-Drew told Adam Schein of SiriusXM that he has no plans to miss activities with the Jaguars during the 2013 offseason and that a holdout will not happen for a second straight year.

In an effort to renegotiate his contract with the team, Jones-Drew missed all offseason activities with the Jaguars in 2012 and returned to the team after missing each of the team's four preseason games. He played in just six games before suffering a foot injury that ended up withholding him from the last 10 games of the season.

Despite playing in just six games and starting in just five, Jones-Drew finished the season as the leading rusher for the Jaguars with 414 yards. The 2006 second round pick has just one year remaining on the deal he signed in 2009 and is scheduled to become a free agent following the 2013 season.
