  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon pleads guilty    Thu Apr 28, 03:21 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge from December in Oklahoma Thursday, April 28. He's scheduled to be sentenced June 8. It was Blackmon's third alcohol-related arrest and fourth arrest overall. He hasn't practiced or played since Week 8 of the 2013 season, and he's been suspended indefinitely since. The Jaguars believe Blackmon is unlikely to play in the NFL again.

Footballguys view: Such an absolutely shame. Blackmon is very talented but cannot get out of his own way. We hope he can find a way to get his life back on track, whether or not he ever sees a football field again.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon charged with DUI    Mon Dec 21, 01:07 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested on a DUI charge Saturday, Dec. 19, according to arrest logs from the Carter County (Oklahoma) Sheriff's Office.

Footballguys view: Blackmon is on indefinitely suspension and has been suspended three times by the NFL for violating the policy on substances of abuse. He's unlikely to ever play football at the pro level again. A waste of incredible natural talent.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon unlikely to return    Tue Aug 4, 01:30 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars suspended WR Justin Blackmon hasn't had any contact with the team, and general manager David Caldwell said he thinks Blackmon's absence makes it unlikely he will ever play in the NFL again. Blackmon hasn't practiced or played since Week 8 of the 2013 season. He has to apply for reinstatement and go through almost a two-month long vetting process before he can return to the field. The Jaguars haven't cut Blackmon and Caldwell has said more than once that they don't plan on doing so. He's currently on the reserve/suspended list and doesn't count against the roster limit or salary cap.

Footballguys view: It's time to release Blackmon from even the deepest dynasty rosters. It was probably time months ago.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon denied reinstatement    Sun May 10, 10:56 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was denied reinstatement by the NFL this offseason, according to The Associated Press' Mark Long. It's unclear whether Blackmon failed a drug test or simply missed one, which counts as a failed test.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon likely done in JAX    Fri Apr 24, 12:34 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon is likely done with the Jaguars if he's reinstated into the league, in the opinion of beat writer Ryan O'Halloran.

Footballguys view: Blackmon's talent has been completely overshadowed by his off-field issues. The Jaguars appear ready to move on from him completely, especially given the rumors of Jacksonville's interest in Amari Cooper. Someone will give him a chance elsewhere if he is released, but it's time for the Jags to move on.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon making progress    Thu Feb 5, 06:17 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon is progressing, regarding his off-field issues, but still has strides to make. The NFL is in control of his situation as of now. Blackmon pleaded no contest late last year to a misdemeanor for marijuana possession, among a litany of other problems.

Footballguys view: Blackmon will need to apply for reinstatement into the league. Once the paperwork is filed, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will have 60 days to make a decision. We hope Blackmon has cleaned his life up. He's immensely talented, and adding him back to the Jaguars roster would be a huge boost for the passing game.

  Jaguars | Owner expects Justin Blackmon back?    Sun Feb 1, 08:59 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has 'paid his dues' and has 'his life together,' according to owner Shahid Khan. Khan is also 'very optimistic' Blackmon will return to the team next season.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars were originally looking at Blackmon as a longshot to return. Now, it seems like Blackmon will be able to return in 2015. He'll need to apply for reinstatement with the league, then commissioner Roger Goodell will have 60 days to make a decision.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon to return in 2015?    Sun Jan 25, 09:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has overcome his issues, and plenty of league sources expect him to be back with the team in 2015.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars aren't counting on Blackmon right now, but if he can play it's a huge bonus. Like Josh Gordon, Blackmon is incredibly talented but had substance-abuse problems. If he's clean, Blackmon will be the best wide receiver on the team and give QB Blake Bortles a quality weapon to throw to. Stay tuned.

  Jaguars | Jags not counting on Justin Blackmon    Tue Dec 30, 01:46 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon isn't necessarily in the team's plans for next season, according to general manager David Caldwell. However, the team would like to have him on the field if he's ready, and they aren't expected to release him, either. 'I think we have to treat it as a luxury. If he comes back that's great, if he doesn't -- we can't count on it. We feel good about the three guys we've got and if he comes back that's even better,' Caldwell said.

Footballguys view: We're just hoping that Blackmon is getting his life back on track. The Jags have heard that Blackmon has dedicated himself to being healthier and returning to football. Jacksonville is under no financial obligation to keep Blackmon since he's not currently on the roster. It would be a huge boost for the offense if Blackmon was sober and back on the football field.

  Jaguars | No plans to cut Justin Blackmon    Thu Jul 24, 02:03 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon will not be cut by the team after his most recent arrest, according to owner Shad Khan. 'We want him to get help he needs,' Khan said.

Footballguys view: Blackmon still needs help. Football isn't even important right now. He needs to get his life back on track, get clean and then perhaps worry about playing football again.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon arrest details    Thu Jul 24, 11:19 AM

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon arrested    Thu Jul 24, 10:45 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested for possession of marijuana Wednesday, July 23, in Oklahoma.

Footballguys view: The latest news about Blackmon (or lack thereof) was ominous because it indicated that he was out of touch from him teammates and otherwise his condition was unknown. His problems in the past were alcohol-based, but this is still a terrible sign. Blackmon isn't worth a redraft pick due to the very tiny chance he gets reinstated this year, and soon he might not even be worth a dynasty roster spot.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon staying quiet    Sun Jun 22, 11:36 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has stayed quiet while serving his NFL suspension. "Every now and again, he will respond to my text," said Jaguars receiver Mike Brown. "We came into the NFL together and we're halfway close. But I don't get into his personal business. Whatever he has going on, I respect his space."

Footballguys view: Blackmon has amazing talent, but off field issues with alcohol have derailed his pro career. His suspension is indefinite, and the Jaguars are preparing as if he's not going to be in their plans for 2014. We hope he overcomes his demons and gets his life back on track.

  Jaguars | Would consider playing Justin Blackmon    Thu Jun 5, 02:57 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars are open to taking WR Justin Blackmon back and playing him this year if the league reinstates him from his indefinite suspension, according to a source with knowledge of the team's plans.

Footballguys view: They might play him, but even if they do, will he play much? It's a nice theory, and the Jaguars need to figure out if the troubled receiver is worth keeping anyway, but ultimately there will be a lot of bodies who will be more in tune with the offense ahead of him if he were to return mid-season.

  Jaguars | Have no plans to release Justin Blackmon    Tue Jun 3, 01:27 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars have no plans to release Justin Blackmon. The team is hoping for Blackmon to return whenever he is reinstated from an indefinite suspension by the NFL.

Footballguys view: The former No. 5 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft is incredibly talented, but demons have plagued him during his pro career. Blackmon has yet to prove he can kick the alcohol problems he had in college at Oklahoma State.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles takes over Justin Blackmon's locker    Tue May 13, 12:49 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has taken over the locker that was used by WR Justin Blackmon.

Footballguys view: We'd be surprised if Blackmon plays football this year, and apparently the Jaguars are preparing to move on without him. It's a shame because Blackmon is a talented player, but he just can't shake his demons off the field. Blackmon is indefinitely suspended by the NFL, but he can apply for reinstatement before the 2014 season. Even if he's reinstated by the league, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell suggested the team could cut Blackmon.

The Florida Highway Patrol said alcohol was not involved in the accident. The vehicle's right rear tire blew up, which forced the vehicle off the road and into a guard rail.

Footballguys view: Good news for Blackmon here. Blackmon is indefinitely suspended for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. At this time, it's unclear when he'll be reinstated.

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said the team would welcome WR Justin Blackmon back to the team if he can get things right.

Footballguys view: It's never been a question of talent with Blackmon. He's incredibly gifted, but he has trouble off field. If he can keep his act straight, then Blackmon has the skiil set to make plays on Sundays.

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan said the team "absolutely" wants WR Justin Blackmon to remain with the team after he is reinstated by the NFL.

Footballguys view: Blackmon is a talented player but has off field issues that have marred his pro career. If he can keep his nose clean, then Blackmon can help the team as a quality receiver.

  Jaguars | Stephen Burton could see more WR time    Wed Nov 6, 03:16 AM

With the indefinite suspension of Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon, the team may turn to WR Stephen Burton to get some work. A third-year veteran acquired off waivers from Minnesota shortly before the season, he missed four games with a concussion and was inactive against the San Francisco 49ers, but the team is intrigued by Burton's size and speed and he will get opportunity in the coming weeks. Burton caught seven passes for 65 yards in the first three games of the season.

Footballguys view: Burton may see the field in three-wide sets during garbage time, which is what ignited Mike Brown. File his name away in very deep leagues.

  Jaguars | Justin Blackmon progressing    Thu Oct 17, 04:54 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring, groin) is progressing nicely but is unlikely to practice Friday, Oct. 18. However, head coach Gus Bradley said Blackmon should be able to play in Week 7 against the San Diego Chargers. 'Blackmon's good,' Bradley said. 'I think it's something that he'll have to deal with. He may be a guy that we hold out tomorrow just to keep it calmed down.'

Footballguys view: This is more about keeping their only offensive weapon safe and less about Blackmon being truly injured. Against the Broncos he had an unreal 20 targets, 14 of which he caught for 190 yards. Don't expect that against San Diego, but he will still get plenty of both targets and yards anyway.

They used a few different defenders like Champ Bailey, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Chris Harris to cover the second-year receiver but nothing worked. Blackmon saw an increase in targets after Cecil Shorts went down with a shoulder injury.

  Jaguars | Blaine Gabbert still the starter    Mon Oct 7, 03:23 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said QB Blaine Gabbert (hamstring) is still the team's starter even though he may miss extended time after hearing his hamstring pop in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Bradley is sticking with his guy (for now). The Jaguars are one of the worst teams in the league and will likely be drafting a real franchise quarterback next year. In addition to free beer, the Jaguars need to entice their fans with the idea of "Get Ready For Teddy." The top quarterback in next year's draft class is Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville) and he could easily wind up in Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon made his regular season debut in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams, and he hauled in five receptions for a game-high 136 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted nine times.

Footballguys view: Blackmon looked quicker, faster, and stronger than he did at any time last year, but he'll have worse quarterback play when Blaine Gabbert returns. His touchdown came on busted coverage. He'll have plenty of garbage time to pick through at Denver next week.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have added WR Justin Blackmon to their active roster and have waived OG Jacques McClendon.

Footballguys view: Blackmon is back from his suspension and may be able to help jump start the lackluster passing game. His chemistry with Blaine Gabbert was poor last year, but strong with Chad Henne. Gabbert is the starter at this time, so we'll see if the duo has been able to improve their on field rapport.

  Jaguars | Praise heaped on Justin Blackmon    Tue Oct 1, 01:11 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley had good things to say about how WR Justin Blackmon handled his four-game suspension. 'He's done tremendous these last four weeks,' Bradley said. 'His body fat has dropped and his weight has gained. He's in really, really good shape right now. He's done everything that we've asked of him, he went on the trips with us. I could go with a list on some of the things we asked him to do that he's done, so he's a in a great frame of mind right now.' Blackmon is likely to start in Week 5 against the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: We've seen several players get over maturity issues, and then turn into solid pros. That's what the Jaguars are hoping for with Blackmon. He's talented, but these off field problems have hurt his young pro career. Add him via the waiver wire this week, and hold him to see what he looks like. Last season Blackmon looked better with Chad Henne under center than he did when Blaine Gabbert was the starter. Gabbert is the start for now with the Jaguars, so we'll have to see if his chemistry with Blackmon is stronger this season.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon is returning in Week 5 after serving his four-game suspension for substance abuse. Blackmon led the team with 64 catches and 865 yards and five touchdowns last year.

Footballguys view: Blackmon didn't do much last year with Blaine Gabbert under center. However, he did flourish when Chad Henne was the starting quarterback. Gabbert is the starter for now, and we'll have to wait and see what their on field chemistry looks like in 2013.
