Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan is a reporter's friend. He's available, intelligent and energetic. He's a great quote. But when he created one of those great quotes earlier Tuesday, we wrote that he could be damaging his organizational goals.
Rapoport also points out that Jones-Drew has a lot of money saved up, an endorsement deal of which to live off and that the two sides are no closer to a deal. Khan has brought out the prideful part of Jones-Drew, which isn't going to help matters.
Khan probably didn't mean for it to come off so confrontational, but NFL players don't like to be told when to run. There were some indications that Jones-Drew was ready to end the standoff. That mood now has changed.
