Justin Blackmon: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Jaguars have still not had contact with Blackmon and are not expecting him to return to the team, ESPN reports. "I have not heard anything and I guess I harbor a little bit of hope but realistically I think when you're away from the game for two-and-a-half years what you were once is not what you probably will be," GM David Caldwell said. "Your skills do erode and especially if you're not staying in tip-top shape and you're not in football shape."

Caldwell indicated that the team has not been in contact with the former first-round pick, who last played in Week 8 of the 2013 season before being suspended for his third violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. While the Jaguars have not made an effort to reach out to Blackmon, it's interesting to note that they have not completely moved on. Caldwell's comments seem to suggest that Blackmon can't be the player he once was, but the team has not cut him and Caldwell has stated on multiple occasions that they do not plan to do so. For now, Blackmon remains on the reserve/suspended list, meaning he does not count against the cap or roster limit. As such, his contract is considered "paused" at the time of his suspension, so the Jaguars retain his rights. Blackmon, should he ever return to the NFL, would have roughly two-and-a-half years remaining on his rookie contract.
Blackmon (suspension) applied for reinstatement but was denied by the NFL, 1010 XL's Mike Dempsey reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Jaguars seem to view any future contribution from Blackmon as a bonus, and it now seems the former No. 5 overall selection is in danger of missing another season. Dynasty owners may want to wait for something more definitive, but it appears the Jags are ready to move forward with a receiving corps led by Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns, and TE Julius Thomas.
It remains unclear whether Blackmon will return to the Jaguars at some point in the future, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

When asked about Blackmon, Jags GM Dave Caldwell reiterated that he is unaware whether the former first-round pick will rejoin the team. "Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said. "Plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he emerges and he's going to go in with those top guys and compete with those other guys. Hopefully we're able to get some news, but if not, we weren't planning on it, we're just going to go." Blackmon, who has had a number of run-ins with the law involving marijuana and alcohol, was effective in 2013, catching 29 passes for 415 yards and a touchdown, but a suspension limited him to only four games. If he returns to the team, he'll have to prove his way back onto the active roster, and at this point, it seems as though the Jaguars are more than prepared to move forth without him.
Jaguars owner Shahid Khan is optimistic that Blackmon (suspension) will be back with the team for 2015, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Blackmon was reportedly arrested Wednesday night in Edmond, Okla. for possession of marijuana, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Blackmon, who was also reportedly issued a traffic citation Wednesday, is currently suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy. In order to be eligible to play at all this coming season, the wideout would need to file for reinstatement with commissioner Roger Goodell. Wednesday's alleged incident presumably doesn't help Blackmon's chances on that front, with the report noting that the Jaguars don't expect the receiver to be eligible to play this season.

After Blackmon was suspended indefinitely for a second violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy during the 2013 season, his status is up in the air. For Blackmon to return, he’d have to first apply for reinstatement by the NFL, and even if they signed off, he’s have to convince the Jaguars to integrate him back into the team. In May GM David Caldwell indicated he wasn’t counting on Blackmon and backed that up a week later by drafting two wideouts in the second round. While Jacksonville could release Blackmon, they’re likely to wait at least until his NFL status is cleared up as they’re not obligated to pay him while he’s out. Nonetheless, this is a top talent as evidenced by his four-game, 415-yard showing on 8.6 YPT despite playing for one of the weaker passing teams in the league. Were he reinstated, the speedy 6-1, 210-pound Blackmon could draw interest from someone, provided he can convince them he’ll stay focused.


Buoyed by a 236-yard game against the Texans in Week 11, Blackmon's output over the last seven games of his rookie season (38-615-4) seemed to portend a Year 2 breakout. That is, until he was suspended four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Taken with the fifth pick in the 2012 draft, the 6-1, 207-pound Blackmon isn't overly fast, but he's a polished route runner with good ball skills and knack for making big plays. His efficiency numbers last year (13.5 YPC) and (6.5 YPT) were poor, but considering the Jaguars averaged only 6.4 YPA as a team, it's hard to hang too much of that on Blackmon (though teammate Cecil Shorts did average 9.3 YPT). This year, Blackmon will be playing for a new GM, head coach and offensive coordinator, and the extent to which they open up the offense remains to be seen. One decision they’ve made already – to give Blaine Gabbert another chance to compete for the quarterback job – doesn’t bode well for Blackmon who came to life only after Chad Henne took over. Finally, as highly as Blackmon was drafted, the new regime has no ties to that pick, and so his margin for further off-the-field errors in judgment could be slim.


The fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, Blackmon is a highly polished prospect who should vie to be the Jaguars’ top target right out of the gate. At 6-1, 207, and with 4.5 speed, Blackmon’s not blowing anyone away with his physical skills, but he’s an excellent route runner, possesses soft hands and did nothing but make plays throughout his college career – in his last 25 games at Oklahoma State, Blackmon had 232 catches for 3,304 yards (14.2 YPC) and 38 touchdowns, as well as 136 yards and a touchdown rushing. The Jaguars quarterback situation is arguably the worst in the league right now with Blaine Gabbert showing nothing during his rookie year, and Chad Henne failing to distinguish himself since coming into the league. But with only Laurent Robinson and Mike Thomas as competition for targets, Blackmon has a chance to be the focus of the passing game as a rookie.
