    Justin Blackmon suspended first four games of 2013 season

    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon, the team's 2012 first-round draft pick, has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2013 NFL season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the NFL announced Tuesday.


    Blackmon will be eligible to return to the Jaguars' active roster on Monday, Sept. 30, according to the NFL.

    Sucks for the Jags...

    Re: Blackmon suspended

    Considering all the rumors and distractions he generated in college, I doubt anyone is overly shocked by his suspension.

    Man!

    The question I have what is the substance he abused? If it's performance that's bad but not nearly as bad if it's drugs (weed). Anyone know?


    Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon's up-and-down rookie season ended on a positive note with a strong statistical finish. His second season is starting off on a huge down note.

    The NFL announced Tuesday that Blackmon has been suspended without pay for the team's first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

    Blackmon will be eligible to return to the Jaguars' active roster on Monday, Sept. 30, following the team's Sept. 29 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    "I've made a mistake and I have no excuse," Blackmon said in a statement released by the Jaguars. "I am truly sorry and disappointed in myself for putting the Jaguars in this situation, and I look forward to putting this behind me and maturing and growing as a person."

    The news is a significant blow to a moribund Jaguars offense that is trying to find new life under coach Gus Bradley. Without Blackmon in the mix, the team's top receivers are Cecil Shorts, Mohamed Massaquoi, Jordan Shipley and rookie Ace Sanders. Perhaps the team will use fifth-round draft pick Denard Robinson at receiver as well. Quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne aren't exactly playing with a stacked deck.

    For Blackmon, this is a terrible first impression with the new Jaguars regime, including general manager David Caldwell. It's possible the suspension also could jeopardize some of the guarantees in his contract. It's unclear how Blackmon violated the policy, which remains confidential. It takes repeat offenses to incur a suspension.

    Glad he's not our problem. He was my number 1 target last year and I was crushed when the Jags snuck above us to grab him, BUT... getting Brockers instead, who was a stud last year, and now the whole Austin, Givens, Quick, Pettis, Bailey thing, I'm pretty happy with how things have turned out

    Re: Blackmon suspended

    I seriously didn't think our draft last year could look any better at this point, but it just got a lil bit sweeter.

    Ouchie. RT @corryjoel: Blackmon's suspension should also void $10,772,248 of guarantees in his '13-'15 contract years.

    He will still probably make all that money, but its not guaranteed now. Good job Blackmon......good job...

    From October 2010 (DUI) :

I知 truly sorry to my family, to my friends and to Oklahoma State altogether. 的 look forward to redeeming myself and proving to everybody that this isn稚 who I am. I知 not this guy. I知 humbled by this experience and I will grow from it.
    From December 2012 (Aggravated DUI) :

    I just want to apologize for that and just let people know that it's not who I am, that's not who I'm going to be. Just like I talked with coach yesterday and Gene, I'm looking to make things better and I will continue to try to do that, from starting yesterday on.
    And today (Drug Suspension) :

    I've made a mistake and I have no excuse," Blackmon said in a statement released by the Jaguars. "I am truly sorry and disappointed in myself for putting the Jaguars in this situation, and I look forward to putting this behind me and maturing and growing as a person.
    At least he didn't say "This isn't who I am" today. He's obviously played that card out. I guess he "grew" from alcohol to drugs.

    We dodged a HUGE bullet on this idiot.

    These situations, and the quotes from the offending athletes, always remind me of this:

    Re: Blackmon suspended

    If Fisher DID want him (which I'm not sure I buy), he just call Snead and said,"Man did we ever dodge a bullet".

    Then he said, "Plus, he's only gonna' have a week to prep for us".
    "the Heart Lies and the Head Plays Tricks with us, but the Eyes See True".
