JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — 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.
