Coach Gus Bradley told reporters Friday that contract talks between the Jaguars and free agent CB Will Blackmon are "moving in the right direction."

Blackmon started eight games and played 682 defensive snaps last season after being out of the league in 2012. The Jaguars view Blackmon as a fit for their defensive scheme and could re-sign him before the start of free agency. Blackmon will likely be brought back as the No. 3 corner behind Alan Ball and Dwayne Gratz.

The Jaguars' official website expects the team to re-sign free agent CB Will Blackmon.

Blackmon was signed off the street ahead of Week 1 after being out of the league in 2012. He started eight games for the Jaguars and played 682 defensive snaps. Pro Football Focus graded Blackmon out as its No. 22 corner out of 110 qualifiers. He's a big corner at 6-foot, 200, just how coach Gus Bradley likes them. Blackmon should be able to land a bit of guaranteed money.

Jaguars signed CB Will Blackmon.

CB Marcus Burley was waived in a corresponding roster move. Blackmon was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday. Out of the league in 2012, Blackmon has made just 14 appearances since the end of the 2008 season. His stay in Jacksonville shouldn't be long.

Seahawks signed CB/KR Will Blackmon.

Blackmon was out of work in 2012, and has appeared in just 14 games since the end of the 2008 season. He hasn't been the same since his 2009 ACL tear. Going on 29, Blackmon will be a long-shot in Seahawks camp.

Giants re-signed CB/KR Will Blackmon.

He'll take the roster spot vacated by Michael Coe, who was placed on injured reserve Monday. Injury prone, Blackmon struggled as a return-man last season, averaging just 6.4 yards on punts and 18.3 yards on kickoffs. His snaps on defense will be limited.

Giants released KR Will Blackmon with an injury settlement.

Blackmon, 26, averaged just 6.4 yards per punt return and 18.3 per kickoff during his five-game stay on the Giants' roster, while continuing to struggle with injuries. He'll likely be signed to an 80-man roster this offseason, but we're losing hope that he'll reassert himself as a fearless return man.

Giants placed DB/KR Will Blackmon on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Blackmon didn't provide the Giants with much in his time on the roster, averaging just 18.3 yards per kickoff return, 6.7 per punt return and contributing two special teams tackles. He's been unable to get over his nagging knee issues.

Will Blackmon will handle return duties for the Giants in Week 9 against Seattle.

There's a good chance of rain, so he'll have to focus on securing in the ball in his first opportunity to return balls since his time in Green Bay. He's got a great on-field track record, and should be a nice upgrade over Darius Reynaud (hamstring). A decent game from Blackmon could lead to Reynaud's release.

Giants signed DB/KR Will Blackmon.

Finally, a replacement for the woeful Darius Reynaud. Blackmon has had trouble overcoming his 2009 ACL tear, which led to the Packers cutting him before the season. Evidently the Giants think he's healthy enough to contribute.

Packers released KR Will Blackmon with an injury settlement.

Blackmon insists his injury is only a two-week condition, but the Packers apparently believe he suffered a setback in his ACL recovery. Jordy Nelson and Brandon Jackson are the favorites for kickoff return duties. Jason Chery will handle punts if he survives.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel projects KR/S Will Blackmon to be among the Packers' final cuts Saturday.

The paper also has Jason Chery missing the cut, apparently locking Sam Shields and Jordy Nelson into the primary return jobs. Once a game-breaking special teamer, Blackmon has been unable to overcome his 2009 ACL tear.

Packers KR Will Blackmon (ACL surgery) has struggled to stay on the field the past couple of weeks.

Coach Mike McCarthy conceded that Blackmon is going through "a bad spot right now" after playing in the first two preseason games. WR Jason Chery, no lock to make the team, will return kicks this week. Brandon Jackson and Jordy Nelson are options on kickoffs, and Sam Shields may get another look on punts.
