AP According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva of Rotoworld.com, Maurice Jones-Drew’s hold out is expected to at least drag into the early part of the regular season. ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Jones-Drew holdout: “Looking more & more like this is going to go into the start of the season at the very least.” — Evan Silva (@evansilva) August 22, 2012 I laugh whenever I hear that Jones-Drew’s hold out is going to go into the regular season becuase has his agent’s name written all over it.  He’s looking to get any leverage he can get against the Jaguars.  But the unfortunate thing is that it’s not going to work. At the end of the day, Jones-Drew will end up costing himself over $1 million if he holds out into the regular season with all of the game checks he’ll miss.
