Disgruntled RB Maurice Jones-Drew didn't show up at the opening of Jaguars training camp on Thursday.

Jaguars rookies and veterans reported to camp Thursday as Jacksonville kicked off its first training camp under new head coach Mike Mularkey. However, on the heels of owner Shahid Khan's comments Wednesday that the team expects Jones-Drew to honor the final two seasons of his current contract (paying him $4.45 million in 2012 and $4.95 million in ’13), the NFL's rushing champion from last season is said to be very angry the team won't reward him with a new deal.

According to NFL Network's Steve Wyche, the team could fine Jones-Drew $30,000 per day for every day he sits out. Jones-Drew already is facing $60,000 in fines after missing a mandatory minicamp this offseason.

The three-time Pro Bowler, who led the league with 1,606 rushing yards last season, skipped the team's OTAs, including the mandatory minicamp, in protest of his current contract. He wants a contract more in line with that of Arian Foster, Ray Rice and Chris Johnson, who received between $20 million and $30 million guaranteed.

The Jaguars reportedly have the most salary-cap space in the league (around $25 million).

Also failing to report to camp Thursday was first-round WR Justin Blackmon, one of the few draft picks who remain unsigned.
