Jones-Drew will skip Jaguars’ workouts, which is news to Mularkey

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew won’t be among the players participating when the team begins its voluntary offseason workouts today.

That’s the word from the Florida Times-Union, which reports that Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey said he didn’t know of any players other than defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (who’s recovering from eye surgery) and kicker Josh Scobee (who’s the Jaguars’ franchise player and hasn’t signed his tender) who would miss the beginning of the workout program.

Not that I know of as of right now,” Mularkey said. “Again, this is a voluntary phase of our offseason and we’d like to have them all here, but we’ll find out when we get started in the morning.”

Jones-Drew is free to do whatever he wants, and he’s never been one to show up out of shape. Still, it’s a little surprising that the head coach wasn’t aware of the star player’s intentions. Mularkey is apparently finding out that Jones-Drew is choosing not to attend when he doesn’t attend this morning.

    Hey joetoronto – go watch the CFL, you troll! Jones-Drew might still be on his honeymoon for all we know. The cat just got married. And even if he’s not, he’ll show up in shape.

    I, unlike many others, enjoy your daily “always first” comments that you somehow make on every single post. Why do I enjoy it? Because it really makes me feel better about not being unemployed as just the thought of living the hateful life you live makes me wanna work harder and harder each day. I’m being serious, too. Now off to work, as I am bout to drive my forklift around the plant for 9 hours with pride and dignity while holding my head high! Thanks Joey.

    i’m trying to figure out which is the dumber move…using a franchise tag on a Kicker or a Kicker refusing to sign.

    He recently got married…so he has other things to do!!!

    Why is it that the press thinks that everything anyone tells them is the total truth and that the press knows everything. Did ya ever stop to think that the coach said what he said to prevent any firestorm of BS press reports of anything resembling “trouble” in the Jags locker room or that he just plain thinks it’s nobody’s damn business (esp that of the press) except for those in that locker room?!

    He’s not happy with his contract anymore. That’s got holdout written all over it.

    What’s allot? Is that Canadian for a particular work status or category?

  15. northshorejag says: Apr 17, 2012 12:06 PM

    Pay him.

    That is such mularkey!

    Drew never attends voluntary workouts. Not a story here

    If you told Mularkey the earth was round, that would be news to him as well. Look up the word “clueless” in the dictionary- there’s a picture of Mularkey by the word.
