With the start of the Jacksonville Jaguars training camp opening tomorrow, running back Maurice Jones-Drew has some thinking to do about if he wants to show up or not.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan told the Florida Times-Union that Jones-Drew will not receive a new contract.

"There's no decision here,'' Khan said. "There's more than 50 players under contract. There are other people under contract in management, coaches. Does that mean if you do it for one, you do it for everybody? Where do you draw the line? It's his choice. There's been very little for us to do rather than wait on whatever he might chose to do."

The Jaguars could levy a $30,000-a-day fine if Jones-Drew is not at camp. Jones-Drew, the NFL's leading rusher last season, has two years remaining on a five-year contract that will pay him $31 million. He will make $4.45 million this season and $4.95 million in 2013.

Update (11:06 a.m.): Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jones-Drew did not show up to the team's training camp on Thursday morning.
