I am sure it is just a matter of time before Maurice Jones-Drew fires his agent. This was the worst holdout of all time. Not only did he not get a new contract, he ends up losing almost a million dollars on his current contract.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew skipped the team’s first 38 days of training camp before finally reporting last week, incurring about $1.6M in fines as a result of the holdout. Jones-Drew, set to make $4.45 this season, will end up being docked a little less than $800,000, according to a league source, in an arrangement brokered between the team and agent Adisa Bakari to end the holdout.
