Justin blackmon has a ton of talent but keeps screwing up! he has been suspended for substance abuse(twice) and his things were removed from his locker by the Jags.  A bunch of you were not happy with this years draft because "we didn't grab Joe any weapons", Would you pull the trigger on this move? We could probably get him for cheap considering the circumstance. The real question is; Does he act out because of the culture that surrounds him or is he just another Rolando?

Seeing how he could be suspended for all of 2014, I don't think it's very likely. It's tough to say how the league will act. He was suspended indefiantly by the league in November, so it's unclear weather or not the league sees that as enough punishment for his second substance violation. Not to mention his numerous DWIs. If it just came down to him the player it would be one thing, but that's not the case unfortunately.

We have a very well rounded WR corps, the problem is it's not top heavy. A WR like Blackmon would be big, but only for the right price, chances are he's another knucklehead that will cause headaches.

If they cut him I'd be all for giving him a tryout.  No question he's shown the talent.

but if we could get him in the same situation as Rolando where it is no detriment to us if he f$ up again, we just wipe our hands of him. I'm just sayin, if(and i know it's a huge if) he could turn it around the value at what we would get him at would be insane

He's a good kid, he just tried his luck once too many times. Perhaps now he'll put the blunt down and leave it till after his career is over, if it isn't already.

I think he has serious issues. I'd give him a non-guarantee contract though. Yes young and talented and we need the WR help.

I can't see Ozzie taking this guy. He keeps stacking red flags and the no non-sense NFL is having none of it. B/c of all his talent, Blackmon keeps blowing his multiple 2nd chances.

Don't have the money for a long term deal. Don't want him.

 

Considering we dealt with a player for worse. I'd give him a chance

I'd be open to the idea.  I'm not sold though.  Blackmon certainly has his demons.  There's no denying that.  However, he's at least proven that he's talented on the field when he's actually allowed to be on there.  If you can take a chance on straightening him out with little financial impact, you certainly have to consider it.  He's young, talented, and has the #1 WR potential we're still missing.

I may be willing to risk bringing him in. He'd be great for our offense, as he's shown during his 2 seasons in Jacksonville that he has plenty of talent.The biggest question of course is whether or not we can straighten him out.

Drugs are easier to fix than a diva issue. And to be fair, he does play in Jacksonville.

Unlike Rolando, he actually played well when he could. So I'd take it

Drugs are a much more serious problem than just being a little cocky.
