Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is opening to being traded and his holdout will reportedly drag on into the regular season, according to tweets Tuesday evening from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

The news comes in the wake of Jaguars owner Shad Khan saying at a press conference on Tuesday about the holdout that the "train is leaving the station. Run, get on it," according to ProFootballTalk.com, citing Gene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union.
