Jags to hold off on MJD contract

The Jaguars official team website reports that general manager David Caldwell said this week that he believes running back Maurice Jones-Drew – a three-time Pro Bowl selection from 2009-2011 – remains part of the team’s core offensively and is key next season. Jones-Drew held out of training camp last season, but said late last season he plans to participate this season. Of Jones-Drew’s contract, which has one year remaining, Caldwell said, “We’ll address that toward the end of the season.” Jones-Drew also said recently that while the foot injury on which he underwent late-season surgery remains in a cast he anticipates a full recovery. Jones-Drew called the injury a “mid-foot fracture.”
