After an frustingly prolonged holdout of 38 days, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew has finally arrived at camp. It isn't too surprising to see, though seeing as he had no leverage. His support base was shrinking rapidly, his backup, Rashad Jennings was playing very well during the preseason, and the owner and GM were adamant about not giving him a new contract. So it's no wonder that the star running back decided to cut his losses and show up to the Jaguars facility.  

So what does this mean? MJD will likely be a third down back in the regular season opener against the Minnesota Vikings and as the season progresses, he will probably regain his starting spot. He might not be as productive as in 2011,but he will probably put up impressive numbers.
