    Jaguars GM says WR Justin Blackmon 'unlikely' to return

    Wide receiver Justin Blackmon , who hasn't practiced or played since 2013 after being suspended for the third time for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, is unlikely to return to the Jaguars according to GM David Caldwell, per ESPN.com. Blackmon hasn't been in contact with the team and his time away from the game signals he is not prepared to hit the field anytime soon. "I don't know to expect but I would say common sense would probably be if you haven't played football in two-and-a-half years apparently that's not a priority for you," Caldwell said. The Jaguars have no plans to cut Blackmon, who would have to apply for reinstatement and go through a two-month vetting process before being allowed to play again.

    Jaguars planning to play 2015 season without Justin Blackmon

    As far as the Jaguars are concerned, Justin Blackmon will not be lining up at receiver for them this season. At least that's the approach Jacksonville is taking. Blackmon has been indefinitely suspended since Nov. 1 2013 for three violations of the substance-abuse policy under the old CBA. "Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said, via ESPN.com. "[We] 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 [having Blackmon]. We're just going to go [without him]." Before he can re-join the Jaguars, he'll need to file an application for reinstatement, with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell making a decision within a 60-day window. The application letter would include details of the treatment he's received. Since being selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft, Blackmon has only played in 20 games. He has 1,280 yards and six touchdowns in his career.

    Ex-Bucs GM Dominik: We had scout shadow Justin Blackmon in 2012

    When quarterback coach George Whitfield Jr. said earlier this week NFL teams have been shadowing and spying on quarterback prospect Jamies Winston, who could be the top pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, it was obviously met with some doubt. However, during a radio interview with ESPN on Wednesday, former NFL general manager Mark Dominik gave credence to Whitfield's comments. Dominik said he had a scout shadow Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft since there were concerns about Blackmon's character. Blackmon had a DUI arrest in 2010 and several other minor incidents. "We found out there was a bar called the Cricket Inn or the Cricket, which was a popular bar there in Oklahoma State," said Dominik, who is now an ESPN analyst. "He [the scout] sat there for one week, went in at 3 o'clock every day and stayed until 11 o'clock at night. That was his job, and we checked how many times did Justin Blackmon come in? And he came in too many times and we took him off our board." The Bucs had the No. 5 pick in the 2012 draft, which they traded to Jacksonville, who drafted Blackmon. The Bucs acquired the Jaguars' first-round pick and took Mark Barron with the seventh overall pick. The Bucs have the first overall pick in this year's draft. Since being drafted, Blackmon has appeared in only 20 NFL games. He has three alcohol-related or marijuana-related arrests since turning pro and has been suspended twice by the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season and then suspended indefinitely on Nov. 1, 2013 for his third failed drug test.
