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.
May 4 - 2:15 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 10:35 AM

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.
Feb 20 - 5:18 PM

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.
Jan 30 - 2:11 PM

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.
Jan 25 - 4:29 PM

The Jaguars are hoping to have an update on suspended WR Justin Blackmon before the 2015 draft.

It's unclear exactly where Blackmon is in the blurred and convoluted personal conduct policy. He's suspended indefinitely and not even the Jaguars have received information on when he's able to file for reinstatement. In the meantime, the team is not even allowed to have contact with their talented yet troubled wideout. GM Dave Caldwell said getting Blackmon back in any capacity is a "luxury." Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns are all under contract for 2015, while Cecil Shorts is not expected back as a free agent.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said Tuesday the team is viewing suspended WR Justin Blackmon's presence on the 2015 roster as a "luxury."

The Jags "hope he'll be back" but are "not planning on it." Caldwell did say he's heard "some good things" about Blackmon's recovery. Blackmon completed a drug-rehab program in November and was rumored to be spotted at a late-season Jaguars game, albeit in the stands. Blackmon turns 25 in two weeks.

John Oehser of the Jaguars' official website believes there's a "good chance" Justin Blackmon plays for Jacksonville in 2015.

Blackmon remains in voluntary rehab and is said to be "doing well." As long as he can stay on the straight and narrow, the belief is he'll be reinstated at some point in 2015. Blackmon was eligible to apply for reinstatement as early as last month. He's still just 25 (next month), but hasn't played since Week 8 of 2013. Cecil Shorts is scheduled for free agency in March. Blackmon could team up with Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee atop the depth chart next year.

Suspended WR Justin Blackmon recently completed a drug-rehabilitation program.

Blackmon revealed that fact to a judge in Edmond, Ok. on Thursday, where he was pleading no contest to misdemeanor marijuana possession. The charge will be dropped to misdemeanor disorderly conduct if Blackmon "does not commit any crimes in the next six months." He's tentatively trending toward reinstatement in 2015.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 02:29:00 PM

Suspended WR Justin Blackmon is currently enrolled in a voluntary 90-day treatment facility.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley made the revelation at his Wednesday press conference. Blackmon is reportedly about halfway through the program, and Bradley made it sound like Blackmon is doing well. Although Blackmon is technically eligible to apply for NFL reinstatement on November 1 (Week 9), he seems like an extreme long shot to play this season. Either way, it's good to know Blackmon appears to be on the right track. Still only 24 years old, Blackmon is worth keeping stashed in Dynasty leagues.
