Wed, 04 Mar 2009 04:06:01 -0800

Dave Richard, of CBSSports.com, reports Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew would like a new deal before the start of next season, but he is also not going to let his contract negotiations become a distraction in 2009 if he doesn't get a deal done this offseason. "I definitely would like something done before the start of the season, but it's not up to me," Jones-Drew said. "My agent is doing a great job of talking to (the Jaguars) and it's up to them. That's what a lot of players have to understand - all you can do is play and hopefully you stick with the team you started with, otherwise you just play for another team. It's part of the business. You can't take it personal, you just kind of have to go with the flow."
