Jaguars' Justin Blackmon: Suspended sentence and probation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackmon (suspension) was handed a one-year suspended sentence and probation Wednesday, stemming from a misdemeanor DUI, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Taken fifth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Blackmon hasn't played in an NFL game since being suspended indefinitely back on Nov. 1, 2013 for a violation of the league's substance abuse program. Though he remains listed on Jacksonville's roster, the the 26-year-old wideout seems increasingly unlikely to play for the team again.

Report: NFL denies Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon reinstatement

Jaguars planning to play 2015 season without Justin Blackmon
by Jason Butt |

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 "[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
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

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.

by Larry Hartstein |

Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee are expected to be the Jaguars' starting outside receivers this season, per the team's website. Justin Blackmon remains suspended indefinitely, and Cecil Shorts left the team via free agency.

Under this scenario, Allen Hurns would be a backup or possibly play the slot.

"The Jaguars like Lee and Robinson on the outside," the website said. "That’s where they envision them."

New optimism regarding Justin Blackmon's potential return
by Larry Hartstein |

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."

Jaguars draft another WR with Allen Robinson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the No. 61 pick in the NFL Draft, the Jaguars selected receiver Allen Robinson from Penn State.

Robinson is the second receiver the Jaguars have drafted with Marqise Lee going earlier in the second round at No. 39 overall, which is a need with Justin Blackmon suspended. Jacksonville also drafted a quarterback in the first round at No, 3 overall with Blake Bortles.

A behemoth at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, Robinson is best known for his strong frame, sharp cuts and physical play. He's not afraid to mix it up and has good hands. He's a good run blocker, too.

Robinson set several single-season school and conference records last year thanks to a 97-catch, 1,432-yard campaign. He will compete with Lee to start opposite Cecil Shorts this year.

Jaguars GM not counting on Justin Blackmon in 2014
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said the team isn't counting on receiver Justin Blackmon playing in 2014, saying he'd be "relatively surprised" if Blackmon's suspension is lifted during the season, according to the official team website. 

Blackmon is currently suspended indefinitely for failing the NFL's substance-abuse policy for the third time.

Jaguars planning to be without Justin Blackmon
by Larry Hartstein |

Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon, who's suspended indefinitely for a third violation of the league's substance abuse policy, can apply for reinstatement before the season begins. But the team is planning as if he won't be available, reports

Blackmon is not allowed to visit the team facility while suspended.

"I wish I could have a more extended conversation with him," coach Gus Bradley told the website. "My feelings toward him haven't changed. I still care about him. To be able to sit down and visit with him, that part I miss."
