JACKSONVILLE, FL (The Spread) – Could the standoff between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Maurice Jones-Drew be forthcoming?

According to Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports, owner Shad Kahn had a private meeting with Jones-Drew that reportedly lasted several hours. Jones-Drew, who led the NFL in rushing last season, is currently upset with his contract and has yet to report to training camp. The Jaguars, meanwhile, don’t want to set a precedent for paying players with two or more years remaining on their contract.

“Our goals for the season don’t change…I don’t control it,” Kahn said following the meeting. “It’s his choice. Believe me, on a zero-to-10 level of stress, this doesn’t even move the needle.”

Rashad Jennings remains the benefactor of Jones-Drew’s standoff with the team. He continues to impress in practice and owns a 5.4 yards-per-carry average over his career. There’s no doubt that the Jaguars are a better team with a happy and participating MJD but if the team is willing to stand its ground and go with Jennings, maybe Jones-Drew will eventually cave realizing he has no leverage.

Oddsmakers currently list the Jaguars as massive long shots to win the 2013 Super Bowl. The Jags have odds of 200/1, which are the worst odds among the 32 NFL teams. They’re also 75/1 to win the 2013 AFC Championship, so clearly this isn’t a team that’s going anywhere this season – with or without Jones-Drew.
