Justin Blackmon was a special talent in the NFL, but he could not stay out of trouble. The former Oklahoma State University wide out has been out of football for over 2 and a half years and the Jaguars general manager feels he will likely never suit up again.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell doubts suspended WR Justin Blackmon will ever play again
“I have not heard anything and I guess I harbor a little bit of hope but realistically I think when you’re away from the game for two-and-a-half years what you were once is not what you probably will be,” Caldwell said. “Your skills do erode and especially if you’re not staying in tip-top shape and you’re not in football shape. I don’t know to expect but I would say common sense would probably be if you haven’t played football in two-and-a-half years apparently that’s not a priority for you.”
