Justin Blackmon saga not 'going in the right direction'
by Larry Hartstein |

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley doesn't sound optimistic about receiver Justin Blackmon returning to the NFL any time soon, reports the Florida Times-Union. Blackmon, suspended indefinitely last November under the league's substance abuse policy, hasn't responded to some messages left by teammates.

"I feel at times there’s probably a little emptiness," Bradley told the paper. "There are some unknowns there and you don’t know how it’s working. You don’t want to shut it off. We haven’t heard much and it doesn’t sound like it’s going in the right direction. ... We can’t count on him."

The Jaguars don’t expect Blackmon to be reinstated in 2014, so they drafted two receivers in the second round.

If reinstated, Jaguars would welcome Justin Blackmon back
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

While the Jaguars have said repeatedly that they're not planning on having receiver Justin Blackmon at any point this coming season, they would be open to letting him return and play if reinstated, ESPN reported. The team will not cut him because he doesn't get paid while suspended. 

There is no official word on when, or if, he will be reinstated by the league. He's currently serving an indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Jaguars have no reason to cut Justin Blackmon
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jaguars aren't planning on releasing suspended receiver Justin Blackmon because it’s more advantageous to maintain their rights to the former first-round pick, reports ESPN.

Blackmon is not taking up a roster spot, and the team doesn't have to pay his salary while he is suspended. He doesn't count against the salary cap, either, so there is no monetary reason to let him go. Plus, if the Jaguars release him they might not be able to recoup some of the $11.9 million in bonus money they paid Blackmon when he signed his contract after being the fifth overall selection in 2012.

The clock has stopped on Blackmon's contract. It will start again if he is reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, meaning the Jaguars will have him under contract for three more seasons at a pretty reasonable salary. He was to make $289,745 in 2013, and though his salary jumps to $2.07 million and $2.91 million in the last two years, thatis still economical for a player with his ability.

Jaguars remove Justin Blackmon's name plate
by Larry Hartstein |

The Jaguars removed suspended receiver Justin Blackmon's name plate from above his locker, reports the Associated Press. It's another indication the former first-round pick has no future with the franchise, the report said.

Blackmon remains suspended indefinitely for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Jaguars hint Justin Blackmon not in future plans
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jaguars have likely moved on from suspended receiver Justin Blackmon for good, reports the Florida Times-Union.

The Jaguars selected receiver Marqise Lee in the second round and Allen Robinson in the third round Friday night, and general manager Dave Caldwell and coach Gus Bradley don't intend on counting on Blackmon in 2014 and beyond.

The report says Blackmon can't be cut until he's reinstated, something Caldwell hinted is not a given.

When asked about Blackmon's future Friday, Caldwell responded: "I think we've covered that. We've moved on for this year."

When asked if he would cut Blackmon, Caldwell said: "We can't [cut him]. If that even happens."

Bradley also stated his disappointment in the situation.

"I feel at times there's probably a little emptiness," Bradley said. "There are some unknowns there and you don't know how it's working. You don't want to shut it off. I was hoping it would be better than where it is going. We haven't heard much and it doesn't sound like it's going in the right direction. Like Dave said, we can't count on him."
