Maurice Jones-Drew wants to re-negotiate his contract, but the Jaguars aren't quite as keen. Speaking to the Florida Times-Tribune, Jaguars General Manager Gene Smith said he expects Jones-Drew to attend the team's mandatory minicamp without a re-structured deal.

Jones-Drew has skipped all of Jacksonville's preseason camps thus far, all of which have been voluntary. He has been vocal in wanting to re-structure his deal with the Jaguars, but Smith told the Times-Tribune that the organization has no such plans.

“He has expressed that he would like to renegotiate and we have expressed, again, that we feel he has a contract with two years left and we expect him to fulfill those obligations," Smith said.
Jones-Drew is coming off a career year in 2011-2012, when he rushed for over 1,600 yards with 4.7 average yards per carry.
