Suspended WR Justin Blackmon's sentencing for a December DUI arrest was continued until August 24.

The extra time will give Blackmon an opportunity to finish court-ordered alcohol abuse classes. Blackmon is still under contract with the Jaguars, but they moved on a long time ago. His NFL career is over.

Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested Saturday in his hometown of Ardmore, Oklahoma for driving under the influence.

Already suspended indefinitely by the league, this arrest should put an end to any hope Blackmon will revive his football career, not that there was much left to begin with. A spectacular talent on the field, Blackmon has never been able to get his life together off it. We sincerely hope that changes.

Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon's CFL rights were recently secured by the Toronto Argonauts.

There's been no indication Blackmon is considering a move north of the border, but Toronto will be where he plays if he does. Blackmon is still under contract with the Jags, who have made it clear they have no intention of releasing him, though GM Dave Caldwell suspects his NFL days are through. Players under NFL suspension are ineligible to play in Canada. The uber-talented Blackmon is still only 25, but can't get his life together off the field.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he doubts suspended WR Justin Blackmon ever plays NFL football again.

"Realistically, when you're away from the game for two-and-a-half years, what you were once is not what you will probably be -- your skills do erode, especially when you're not in shape and not in top football shape," Caldwell said, adding that getting back into the league doesn't appear to be a priority for Blackmon. The Times-Union reports the only reason the Jags haven't cut Blackmon is because they're trying to recoup several million of the $7.11 million signing bonus he received as the No. 5 overall pick in 2012.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said he hasn’t had any contact with suspended WR Justin Blackmon.

Multiple offseason reports suggest Blackmon was denied reinstatement by the NFL. Blackmon is currently set to miss an unprecedented 40 games on indefinite suspension. An elite on-field talent, Blackmon’s career has been derailed by multiple Stage 3 violations. The Florida Times-Union believes it’s "uncertain" if Blackmon will return in 2016.

According to multiple reports, suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon did apply for reinstatement to the NFL this offseason, but was denied by the league.

The Associated Press' Mark Long reported Blackmon's reinstatement attempt was denied, and the report has been "confirmed" by Mike Dempsey of 1010 XL in Jacksonville. The "feeling" is reportedly that Blackmon failed another drug test, though Dempsey suggests Blackmon also may have missed a test, which counts as a failed test in the NFL's eyes. Either way, we're not optimistic that Blackmon will be returning to the field anytime soon.

Speaking in a Monday radio interview, Jaguars GM David Caldwell indicated suspended WR Justin Blackmon could be done with the team.

Caldwell was asked about the fact that the Jags drafted two more receivers over the weekend, and he confirmed it's indeed an indication of Blackmon's future — or lack thereof — with the team. Beat writer Ryan O'Halloran is confident Blackmon is "DONE-ZO" in Jacksonville. Blackmon is serving an indefinite suspension, and it's unclear when he might apply for reinstatement.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said the team doesn't know if suspended WR Justin Blackmon has applied for reinstatement.

"Our process hasn't changed," Caldwell said. "Plan to go without him, but if he emerges, he's going to go in with the top guys and compete. Hopefully we're able to get some news." Blackmon hasn’t appeared in a game since 2013 and remains on indefinite suspension. The Florida Times Union believes Blackmon is done in Jacksonville.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes Justin Blackmon is "done-zo" with the Jaguars.

O'Halloran made the comment in a chat, so he was merely speaking his opinion. The Jaguars' higher-ups have backed Blackmon to a certain degree and said nice things about the former No. 5 overall pick, but by the way the team has approached free agency and the draft over the past year, they appear set to move on. O'Halloran believes Amari Cooper will be in play at No. 3 overall.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell told PFT Live he’s encouraged by the reports he’s getting on suspended WR Justin Blackmon.

"It's currently in the league's hands and it's in Justin's," Caldwell said. "The reports I’ve gotten is that he's engaging in the program. We’ll welcome him back if he does all the right things." This falls in line with comments from owner Shad Khan last month. The Jaguars want Blackmon back and are optimistic he'll return in 2015. Blackmon has yet to apply for reinstatement. Jacksonville is hoping to get his status resolved prior to the NFL draft.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan stated Friday at the Super Bowl that he is "very optimistic" about the 2015 return of suspended WR Justin Blackmon.

"Absolutely," Khan stated vehemently. "As a matter of fact, I’m very optimistic. I think he’s paid his dues. I think he’s got his life together. I think he can be a role model for people who have gone through hard times. We’re waiting for him." Blackmon's return would be a huge boost to Jacksonville's wideout corps, which is dealing with Allen Robinson's foot fracture and Cecil Shorts' free agency. 25-year-old Blackmon is a run-after-catch machine with an ability to threaten the intermediate sections. He'd be a big upgrade on Shorts at Z receiver.

Suspended WR Justin Blackmon pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge on November 20.

The charge will be reduced to misdemeanor disorderly conduct if Blackmon commits no crimes for six months after November 20. According to beat writer Michael DiRocco, the Jaguars need Blackmon to apply for reinstatement "within the next five weeks." From the date Blackmon fills out the application, Roger Goodell would have 60 days to decide whether to reinstate him to the NFL.

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports "lots of folks" inside the NFL are "optimistic" suspended WR Justin Blackmon will return to the Jaguars in 2015.

Just as Josh Gordon's Dynasty league owners get the worst news possible, Blackmon's get a ray of hope. The Jaguars hope to have an update on Blackmon's progress before May's draft, at which point they can begin planning for the 2015 season. Blackmon remains "suspended indefinitely," with no concrete date for potential reinstatement. At Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell's season-ending presser this past December, he said he'd "heard some good things" about Blackmon's recovery from substance abuse. Blackmon turned 25 two weeks ago. His return would be a huge boost for beleaguered Blake Bortles.
