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

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.
Blackmon's (suspension) playing status remains unclear, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report notes that the Jaguars have indicated that they have had little or no communication with Blackmon, who has been suspended under the league's substance abuse policy since last November. Meanwhile, the NFL has not provided any sort of timetable for when the wideout can apply for reinstatement. "Someone’s status in the program is confidential," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello noted. "Until further notice, we have no information to provide or nothing to say." While the report suggests that the Jaguars have no intention of releasing Blackmon at this stage, it appears as though the team is braced for a scenario in which he is unlikely to be reinstated in 2014.
Blackmon (suspension) is not expected to suit up for the Jaguars in 2014, reports. "It's not something we're counting on," GM David Caldwell said.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Caldwell indicated he'd be "relatively surprised" if Blackmon played in 2014 after the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft was suspended indefinitely without pay last season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The Jaguars have not been in regular contact with Blackmon since the suspension, and he'd first need to be reinstated by the league before being eligible to play. Jacksonville is able to release Blackmon at any point, but they'll likely hold onto his rights until his situation regarding the suspension is cleared up. Blackmon has been a dynamic receiver when in the lineup, but injuries and off-the-field issues limited him to just 20 games over the last two seasons. In 2013, Blackmon finished with 29 catches for 415 yards and one touchdown in four contests.
Blackmon (suspension) was uninjured in a one-vehicle accident early Saturday morning, the Florida Times-Union reports. Alcohol was not involved.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Blackmon's rear right tire blew out while he was driving, causing the vehicle to swerve into a guard rail. Blackmon luckily escaped the scare with no injuries, and it seems that he was not at all at fault. He remains suspended indefinitely due to multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said Thursday that Blackmon (suspension) will be back with the Jaguars "at some point in time", John Oehser of the team's official site reports.

Blackmon will enter a rehabilitation facility, after being suspended indefinitely for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The violation is Blackmon's second of the season, as he already missed the team's first four games. His history of substance-related offenses -- including multiple DUIs -- suggests that he's in need of outside help, and it appears the talented young receiver will seek just that. His suspension is indefinite, but Blackmon is expected to apply for reinstatement after the season. The Jaguars are not obligated to welcome him back, but it's likely they will, as he's one of the few bright spots, at least talent-wise, on an otherwise dreadful roster.

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.
