    Justin Blackmon

    Arrested last night for marijuana possession.

    I'm guessing that's not going to help his case for reinstatement.

    Such talent, wasted. Someone needs to intervene and get him the help he needs.

    Unfortunately, as far as football, he's probably a lost cause. I hope he's done with the "I want to prove this isn't who I am" garbage, and realize he needs to try and salvage his life. It's too bad, because I really think he's a good guy with enormous talent, but just too many demons.

    Imagine if he was arrested for illegal weapons possession and said he has a bomb to TSA officers. Now that would get you in trouble.......

    I think a wr tandem of josh Gordon and Justin Blackmon would be unstoppable. Of course, it will be a lot easier to stop them when they never appear on the field. Can you imagine the two of these guys with nate newton blocking for them and claude wroten in hot pursuit trying to make the tackle?

    Ramming speed to all

    I agree, Justin Blackmon does need help. Its such a shame to see someone destroy their life with weed.

    I mean, why couldn't he just beat his girlfriend unconscious instead?

    All sarcasm aside, it's more than just weed. He has multiple substance abuse issues, has had multiple DUI's, was suspended by Oklahoma State while in college, and has been suspended twice by the NFL for violation of the league's substance abuse policy, within a 6 month time period no less, and remains suspended indefinitely. He is definitely throwing his life away, and he definitely needs help.

    Why didn't we trade up to get this guy?? Had to settle for Brockers, who was a wasted pick. Gawd, we suck at drafting!

    Rams didn't need a DT as much as they needed a #1 WR for Sam. Any #1 WR!!!

    TY Jacksonville.

    No doubt, just pointing out the stupidity of the NFL'S policies regarding player punishment. I think someone like Ray Rice is in much greater need of 'help' than Justin Blackmon, who to me, just comes off as more of an idiot than anything else.

    I wouldn't say any #1 WR. Take, for example...oh I don't know...Justin Blackmon, maybe?

    Re: Justin Blackmon

    A lot of us pat ourselves on the back for our football knowledge, myself included. And I was one of them that wanted Blackmon and was disappointed the Rams got Brockers and not Blackmon. Its humbling to see that yes, I don't know it all.

    For Blackmon I am disappointed in him, the Jags, and his college. Its not the Jags responsibility nor his college to give him life skills. Yet from a business point of view, it would have made more sense if the Jags kept him on a shorter leash and help him and his college didn't do Blackmon any favors in passing him. Even though ultimate responsibility rests with Blackmon, still at least someone in his path could have shown him a better path to becoming a man. Right now Blackmon is a boy trapped in a man's body
