View Full Version : Darius Reluctantly Returns To Jaguars Training Camp

Darius adopted a proactive stance in attempting to facilitate a trade, openly lobbying for the Minnesota Vikings (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=min) or Miami Dolphins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=mia) to acquire him. Darius contacted reporters in Miami and the Twin Cities, soliciting interviews, and then professing his desire to play for the Dolphins or Vikings.
His unhappiness with the Jaguars stems, in part, from the inability to land a lucrative, long-term contract from the team. This marked the third straight offseason in which the Jaguars designated Darius a franchise player and the third year in which he signed the one-year qualifying offer.I doubt we have much of a chance of getting him but do you guys think he'll be traded? I'm actually surprised he came back to training camp, if no trades happen... will he hold out this season?
