Jaguars Place Maurice Jones-Drew Reserve/Did Not Report List
The Jacksonville Jaguars placed star running back Maurice Jones-Drew on the reserve/did not report list. They have the right under the NFL collective bargaining agreement to fine him $30,000 for each day of camp he misses. The Jaguars have made it clear they won't renegotiate Jones-Drew's $31 million deal inked three years ago. Jones'Drew has already been paid $21.85 million, but is due $4.45 million this year and $4.95 million next year. Due to his contract dispute, Jones-Drew has been absent for the entire offseason.

No shit what does a contract even mean anymore? Seems like most of the time top players demand renegotiation a couple years in, so from a teams point of view, why even bother with trying to get them to sign anything longer than that in this day and age? You KNOW that as soon as some other players sign bigger contracts a year or two down the road and poor baby isnt making as much money as he wants anymore, then this garbage will ensue and cause everyone a bunch of headache.
Those who would give up essential freedoms for temporary safety deserve neither freedom nor safety
