I'm sure the Bengals and Cowboys are hoping we drop him. This really put a negative taste on the new Jags media drive. His contract is going to be even more structured now, for protection for the Jags origanization. He probably just lost 3-4 millon for this. I like the pick, but now this clown is embarassing the team and city of Jax. Here's to the off season.
You might call it "tradition."
Blackmon is Jacksonville’s fourth first-round draft pick since 2000 to face problems after being selected. The team has tried for nearly a decade to find a suitable replacement for its best receiving tandem ever, Jimmy Smith and Keenan McCardell.
Former Arkansas quarterback-turned-wide receiver Matt Jones, selected in 2005, was charged with cocaine possession in July 2008 and ordered into a drug treatment program. He was suspended for three games in late 2008 for violations of the NFL’s drug policy and cut in the spring of 2009.
The team’s 2004 first-round pick, Washington wide receiver Reggie Williams, wasn’t re-signed after being charged with drug possession in Houston in 2009.
And wide receiver R. Jay Soward of Southern Cal, taken in the first round in 2000, seldom played due to drug and alcohol problems that led to numerous suspensions.
BTW, Blackmon pleaded
this afternoon in court.
