Justin Blackmon could be out the entire year in J-Ville

Today Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell talked to the Florida Times-Union in regards to the teams star wide receiver Justin Blackmon. When asked if Justin Blackmon would be eligible Caldwell did not seem optimistic. 

“It’s not something we’re counting on,” Caldwell told reporters Friday, per Ryan O’Halloran of The Florida Times-Union, adding that he’d be “relatively surprised” if Blackmon suited up in 2014 after being suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Caldwell said in February that the Jaguars haven’t been in regular contact with Blackmon, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, citing “certain rules that we have to abide by” from the NFL Players Association and the league office. The third-year wideout would need to be reinstated by the league first, something NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport on Friday called no guarantee, per sources informed of the situation.

The Jaguars might need to go wide receiver early in the draft, the team does not have a great receiving corps with out Blackmon. Could you imagine Sammy Watkins in a Jag uniform?
