Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has ended his 38-day contract holdout, and does not have a new deal.
The NFL's top rusher of 2011 reported to the Jaguars Sunday morning, after missing all of training camp and the entire pre-season.
Jacksonville Jaguar running back Maurice Jones-Drew was unhappy with team ownership and reportedly was open to a trade during his 38 day contract holdout.
The former UCLA standout had two years remaining on his existing five-year $31 million contract, but held out to renegotiate for a longer deal.
The Jaguars' new ownership, led by Shad Khan, refused a new deal, and both sides eventually began taking shots at one another in the media.
Jones-Drew was upset with Khan after he called him out two weeks ago.
"Train is leaving the station. Run, get on it," Khan told the Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville.
That comment sparked trade rumors, as Jones-Drew took offense, but the Jaguars vehemently refused to trade their best player.
The Jaguars could fine $30,000 for each day he held out, and also an additional $60,000 for missing mini-camp. There is no word yet on whether Jacksonville will go ahead with the fines.
For his career, Jones-Drew has collected 6,854 rushing yards and 62 touchdowns.
