Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will reportedly be fined a little less than $800,000 for holding out of the teams first 38 days of training camp, according to a report Sunday morning from CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Jones-Drew, who is set to make $4.45 million this season, had his agent arrange a lesser fine from the team, which was initially set at $1.6 million, though it's unclear on what grounds the fine was virtually halved.

According to La Canfora, a player is to be fined $30,000 for each day missed during training camp, as per the new collective bargaining agreement.

The holdout began when Jones-Drew insisted to Jags owner Shahid Khan that he get a better deal than the five-year, $31 million contract that he signed in 2009. Jones-Drew eventually decided to return to the team on Sept. 2, and now his wallet is a little lighter.

Jones-Drew was named to the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl last season with the Jaguars.
