Justin Blackmon says he doesn’t have a substance abuse problem

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon told the media that he doesn’t have a substance abuse problem, even though he was arrested for DUI.

“No, I would say I don’t,” Blackmon said, per NFL.com. “Out of this whole thing one of the main things I would say that I had a problem with was just making a poor decision, making a selfish decision at that and not thinking about the long-term of it and just thinking about at the time.

“If you want to ask if I have a problem? I have a problem with making a poor decision.”

Blackmon was asked what he’s going to do to stay out of trouble.

“Just lean on my support group. (Coach) David (Caldwell) and (general manager) Gus (Bradley) have been very supportive ever since they’ve been here,” Blackmon said. “I’ve been going in and talking to them almost every day so having them there, having the teammates here that I have here have been very supportive here and it feels good to have people I can lean on and talk to.”

Well it sounds like Blackmon doesn’t get it.  I really hope he doesn’t get in trouble again because right now I can only imagine him getting arrested again for the same thing.
