It’s looking more and more like the impasse between star RB Maurice Jones-Drew and the Jaguars isn’t getting resolved anytime soon.

Mojo said recently that he hopes the two sides can get something done. GM Gene Smith thinks they did get something done, three years ago, when Jones-Drew signed a five-year deal worth $31 million. One source pointed out that the Jaguars gave Mojo that deal “on a promise,” as he had yet to even become a full-time starter. The same source wondered why Jones-Drew and his agent, Adisa Bakari, signed a contract without escalators and “two years of bad money” on the end of it.

With neither side budging, we hear it is very likely Jones-Drew misses all of training camp and his status for Week One is very much up in the air. QB Blaine Gabbert is already in a pressure-packed situation trying to turn the page from a disastrous rookie season. The potential absence of Mojo from the offense increases the pressure on Gabbert exponentially.
