Justin Blackmon suspended 4 games

Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report that Blackmon has been suspended for four games by the league for violating league policy and the NFL later announced that it was specifically a violation of the Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

I guess saying he has a drinking problem is a massive understatement at this point. Supposedly he lost himself upwards of 10 million dollars in guaranteed money for this, so I hope it was a great time.

Better just cut him or trade him

tjsunstein 04-30-2013 04:25 PM

I doubt there's a trade market for him. Jacksonville is better off keeping him, he has zero guaranteed money for the duration of his contract now.

yeah I was mostly kidding so the Titans wouldn't have to play him twice a year

Hard to believe that Dez Bryant has been the least disappointing in a long line of OSU Cowboy WRs...

Hart Lee Dykes
Rashaun Woods
Adarius Bowman
Dez Bryant
Justin Blackmon

Blackmon had a pretty good 2nd half to the season considering his QB sucked and he was a rookie.

I loved me some Adarius Bowman coming out

Current Jag WRs

I like how Michael Floyd was the one who everyone criticized for his off the field problems in last year's draft yet Blackmon's problems were covered up under a rug.

They were pretty publicized as well, that's why man, myself included, were surprised the Jaguars selected him

I had such a hard on that off-season for Bowman, that's a name I almost forgot about.

Like I said in another thread, I knew that Blackmon would have problems when he blew a .24. You have to have an incredibly tolerance to still be driving at that point. Most people have never struggled with alcohol abuse and don't understand how high that is. It's a lot more difficult to stay conscious and go from .16 to .24 than it is to go from .08 to .16.

I really hope he can get things straightened out.

bigbluedefense 05-01-2013 08:48 AM

Well...I guess I was wrong about Blackmon...

cecil shorts is the ****

They better hope MOJO can dominate those 1st four games and Mercedes Lewis finally shows his face again. Where was that guy last year?

bigbluedefense 05-02-2013 09:19 AM

Mojo is yesterdays news.

Dernard Robinson is gonna boss the league at RB.

HawkeyeFan 05-02-2013 09:40 AM

That's pretty unfortunate.. I loved Blackmon coming out and still think he can make a name for himself in the league.. but damn, costing yourself $10mil in GUARANTEED money? That's hard to cope with.

Why are athletes so stupid? Why couldn't I run fast?

So many life questions that I need answers to.

So, so true.

Grizzlegom 05-02-2013 11:04 AM

I'm glad the Jags are gonna be smart and use him at RB where he belonged all along. On topic, Blackmon = Kenny Britt 2.0?

I've read that 17% of 7-footers play in the NBA. Every day, I wake up and wish that I was 10 inches taller.

The graphic designer at my job is 6'10" and never played any sports. I want to punch him in the face.

I know a 7 footer who didn't want to play basketball. He wanted to be a surfer. He works at Dicks Sporting Goods now.

******* idiot. Was handed a gift and threw it away.

Yup. I went to high school with a 7 footer. He liked skateboards and JNKO jeans :(

There are so many health related issues with being that tall, and then throw in sports and you are talking about a lifetime full of even more health problems.
