According to Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Gene Smith has indicated that they’ve been communciating with Justin Blackmon’s reps as they continue to work to get a contract done.

“Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said he is having “healthy communication’’ with Todd France, Blackmon’s agent,” reported Stellino.

The Jaguars and France are working to overcome some obstacles that involve the Jags looking for some protection in Blackmon’s contract, since he was arrested for DUI this offseason.

“One of the hang-ups in the talks is the Jaguars want language protection in case Blackmon, who recently pleaded guilty to an aggravated DUI charge, has any further off-field incidents,” wrote Stellino.
