Jones-Drew ended his 38-day holdout on Sunday, Sept. 2, by arriving at the team’s facility despite a lack of a new contract.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Maurice Jones-Drew has been briefed. He has heard all about Mike Mularkey's touchdown policy, the one in which the Jacksonville Jaguars coach donates money to charity every time a player scores and hands the ball to an official without any kind of celebration.

Jones-Drew chuckled when asked whether he's going to comply with Mularkey's request.

He says, "We're entertainers, but at the same time I'm coachable."

Of everyone in Jacksonville's locker room, Jones-Drew could have the toughest time playing it straight. After all, the three-time Pro Bowl running back has celebrated nearly all his 74 career touchdowns in unique fashion.

The Jaguars could find out if Jones-Drew's celebrations end under the team's new regime in Sunday's season opener at Minnesota.
