Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey is hearing rumors that holdout Maurice Jones-Drew will report soon, but says none of the talk is coming from anyone who matters.

ME! ME! ME!

Some players can't help but love the spotlight. Here are the NFL's top 10 divas.

On a conference call with reporters Saturday, Mularkey says he has ''heard the same things like you have, but nothing from people that need to tell me. Nothing personally from Maurice.''

Jones-Drew wants to renegotiate his $31 million contract, which has two years remaining. The Jaguars insist they have plans to rework his deal.

Jones-Drew could show up in time for the opener, which would ensure he wouldn't miss a paycheck.

Mularkey isn't saying where he heard the rumors, but adds that ''I hear things on the street just like you guys do. I can tell you it wasn't on Twitter.''
