Jacksonville Jaguars wide out Justin Blackmon was arrested again for DUI in Carter County just a few days ago, according to reports. Blackmon was stopped on December 19th at 4:45 in the morning for his second DUI charge since being suspended indefinite by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse policy during the 2012 season.

According to Big Kat Country, his career is likely over after this arrest.
It’s a bit of a sad story for Blackmon, who clearly has struggled with substance abuse during his time in and out of the NFL, being cited for a DUI while in college that was later dropped to a misdemeanor and being suspended in the NFL. Blackmon attended rehab on his own accord during the 2014 NFL season and at one point was rumored to be on his way back to the NFL, but I think at this point it’s safe to say his NFL career is over.
Blackmon played in 20 games for the Jaguars with 93 receptions, 1,280 yards and six touchdowns. He was selected with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
