    Maurice Jones-Drew is unhappy about his contract, and he is staying away from Jaguars offseason team activities to show his displeasure with the five-year deal he signed prior to the 2009 campaign. Our sources in North Florida tell PFW the contract extension that Jones-Drew is pining for isn’t coming anytime soon. Jones-Drew, the 2011 NFL rushing champion, has yet to say publicly that his absence from OTAs is because he wants an extension; rather that information was revealed by head coach Mike Mularkey last week. Word is Jones-Drew likely will join his teammates June 12 for mandatory minicamp to avoid having his salary docked. We’re also hearing that Jones-Drew is likely to downplay his absence, pointing to his preference to work out in his home state of California during the offseason rather than as a sign of unhappiness about his current deal.
