The waiting game is expected to continue in Jacksonville. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not report to training camp while extending his contract-related standoff with management.
General manager Gene Smith and owner Shad Khan have stated the team's position. The expectation is Jones-Drew will play the final two years under the terms of his existing deal. Jones-Drew is scheduled to earn $9.4 million through 2013. He's in the fourth year of a five-year, $31 million contract signed in 2008.
"It's his choice," Khan said. "There's been very little for us to do rather than wait on whatever he might choose to do."
Jones-Drew led the NFL in rushing last season with 1,606 yards.
The Jaguars can fine him $30,000 each day he misses during training camp.
