(NEW YORK) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have no intention of trading running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Jaguars general manager Gene Smith told the Florida Times-Union on Wednesday that exploring the idea of trading Jones-Drew is not an option.
“Maurice is a Jaguar,” Smith told the newspaper.
Jones-Drew’s agent still insists that he is not happy and would like to be traded.
“Maurice wants to play for an organization that wants him and for an owner who respects him and values what he brings to a team — on the field, in the locker room and in the community,” his agent, Adisa Bakari, said.
The Pro Bowl runing back is scheduled to make $4.45 million this season and $4.95 million in 2013.
