Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

Maurice Jones-Drew Will Skip Jaguars' Mandatory Minicamp

"The NFL's leading rusher is so unhappy with his contract that he's refusing to show up to work.

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will skip the team's three-day minicamp that begins today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

That means the Jaguars can fine him up to $60,000, which would cut his 2012 pay from $4.45 million (an amount that Jones-Drew thinks is far too low) to $4.39 million. He could also be subject to having to forfeit a portion of the $9 million signing bonus he received when he signed his current five-year, $31 million deal in 2009.

The Jaguars have not yet said whether they plan to dock Jones-Drew's pay, but they have said they expect him to honor his contract. By not showing up to the mandatory minicamp, he's not honoring his contract."
