After unsuccessfully holding out last offseason and into training camp of 2012, Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew told SiriusXM NFL Radio yesterday that he is not planning on asking the team for a long-term contract. "I went to them last year," Jones-Drew said during the interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. "It didn't work out. I'm not going to reach out to them because, you know, I just feel like I tried that last year (and) it didn't work." Jones-Drew was the NFL’s leading rusher in 2011, but after holding out for a new deal he was limited to 414 yards rushing before sustaining a season-ending foot injury on Oct. 21. Jones-Drew is entering the final year of his contract with Jacksonville, and the 27-year-old said he’s open to re-signing with the Jaguars. However, he won’t be the one demanding an extension this year, as Jones-Drew noted that the team will have to be the one to initiate negotiations.
