Jacksonville, FL (Associate Press) - The Jacksonville Jaguars have placed running back Maurice Jones-Drew on the reserve/did not report list, an indication they don't expect their star player to show up to training camp anytime soon. The Jaguars signed fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou to take his spot on the 90-man roster. Ta'ufo'ou has spent time with Chicago, Cleveland, Denver and Tennessee. But he hasn't played in a regular-season game. Ta'ufo'ou gives the Jaguars four fullbacks, including Greg Jones, Brock Bolen and Montell Owens. Another fullback, Naufahi Tahi, left the team Friday in what coach Mike Mularkey called a family decision. Jones-Drew, meanwhile, is holding out in hopes of getting the team to renegotiate his contract. He has two years remaining on a five-year, $31 million deal. The team says it has no plans to renegotiate.

  • Mo-!Jo Is a good runner but he would not have put up the numbers he did without Brad Meester & the
    Front line & more importantly the lead blocks of Greg Jones...Give Greg Jones a raise & let Mo-Jo move on...I ll bet he was a happy camper when he signed the contact he has now...Without Jones his rushing
    Numbers will drop by 30 0/0...Let's move on to a great season with a new running back. It is still a team
    Game.
