Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Taylor believes MJD will hold out

National Football Post

Fred Taylor is arguably the face of the Jacksonville Jaguars in terms of the franchise's on-field accomplishments.

So when Taylor has an opinion to voice about the team, it will draw some attention. Taylor says on 1010XL Radio in Jacksonville (via Big Cat Country) that he believes current Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will hold out from training camp in a dispute over his contract situation.

Taylor's words carry even more weight than that of a former Jaguars star running back in that he said he has been working out with MJD, whom he said has "hurt pride" in his dealings with management.

Jones-Drew missed all of the off-season work, so the fact that he might not show for the start of training camp isn't a big surprise, and perhaps almost a foregone conclusion.
