He isn't doing himself any favors sitting out...missing the new coaching staff, owner, Offense, players, upsetting fans, having no connection w/Jax(staying in CA), and not participating on the Jaguar Caravan. He knows, this season, he won't be as highly used, as he did last season. With the WR situation improving and RB Jennings coming back, the pressure will be less than last season. He even admitted he has lost a step, since he knee surgery, which you can see, lost that break away speed. I really like MJD, but I think is agent is making a big mistake here.

You're crazy, look at his production with the Jags, he IS the offense. He was dumb for signing his last deal, should have been at the 8 million/year mark easily on his last deal.

Unfortunately, that organization is so cheap, they would probably just let him sit out the whole year and go for the #1 pick in the draft instead.
This is too true. I don't blame him one bit.
