Maurice Jones-Drew's holdout appears far from over. His agent Adisa Bakari tells The Associated Press that the Jacksonville Jaguars running back isn't pleased with owner Shad Khan's recent public comments about his client's 28-day holdout. ''Maurice wants to play for an organization that wants him and for an owner who respects him and values what he brings to a team - on the field, in the locker room and in the community,'' Bakari says. Khan said last week that MJD's absence ''doesn't even move the needle'' in terms of stress. On Tuesday, Khan said, ''This is not a team about one person.'' His message to Jones-Drew: ''train's leaving the station. Run, get on it.'' Bakari says those statements don't sit well with MJD. ''Obviously, he's not happy that what started as a very cordial and private conversation is now public and contentious,'' Bakari says.
