Justin Blackmon has come to a crossroads in his NFL career.
The uber-talented wide receiver has a substance abuse issue, and is heading towards an early retirement if he can’t get his issues together.
Blackmon has missed 12 games last season while serving two different suspensions, and he still hasn’t been reinstated by the NFL. Jaguars owner Shad Khan said on Friday that he “absolutely” wants Blackmon on his team.
“It’s disappointing what happened to him, but for the young man, we want him to get his life together and be a part of the Jaguars,” Khan said, via the Florida Times-Union.
Blackmon is eligible to be reinstated before the 2014 season begins.
