Justin Blackmon Suspended 4 Games


Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon's up and down rookie season ended on a positive note with a strong statistical finish. His second season is starting off a huge down note.

The NFL announced Tuesday that Blackmon has been suspended without pay for the team's first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Blackmon will be eligible to return to the Jaguars' active roster on Monday, Sept. 30 following the team's September 29 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

"I've made a mistake and I have no excuse," Blackmon said in a statement released by the Jaguars. "I am truly sorry and disappointed in myself for putting the Jaguars in this situation, and I look forward to putting this behind me and maturing and growing as a person."

The news is a significant blow to a moribund Jaguars offense that is trying to find new life under coach Gus Bradley. Without Blackmon in the mix, the team's top receivers are Cecil Shorts, Mohamed Massaquoi, Jordan Shipley and rookie Ace Sanders. Perhaps the team will use fifth-round draft pick Denard Robinson at receiver as well. Quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne aren't exactly playing with a stacked deck.

For Blackmon, this is a terrible first impression with the new Jaguars regime, including general manager David Caldwell. It's possible the suspension also could jeopardize some of the guarantees in his contract. It's unclear how Blackmon violated the policy, which remains confidential. It takes repeat offenses to incur a suspension.

They should just throw Denard back there. Let him do his thing.

Positive draft for Jags fans. The universe can't have that so it was obviously time to step in and have this fricking moron do something stupid again. Jesus.

He's also losing almost $11M in guaranteed money from '13-'15 because of this. What an idiot.
