Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew’s holdout continues, and now he is reportedly open to a trade.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jones-Drew’s holdout shows “no signs of letting up” and that last year’s rushing champ is open to being traded “in light of Jaguars owner Shad Khan’s recent remarks.”

Khan spoke to the media on Tuesday to announce the Jaguars’ commitment to playing multiple games in London and was asked about his star back.

“Train is leaving the station. Run, get on it,” Khan said.

Jones-Drew started every game last season and led the league with 1,606 rushing yards. He also had 43 catches for 374 yards and 11 total touchdowns. Jones-Drew signed a five-year deal in 2009 and is owed $4.45 million in 2012 and $4.95 million in 2013.

Rashad Jennings has been running as the Jaguars’ starting back.
