According to Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.com, the Jacksonville Jaguars and rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon haven’t made any real progress towards getting a contract done.
“There’s been no real progress between the Jacksonville Jaguars and wide receiver Justin Blackmon, a league source tells PFT. Blackmon has been and will continue to be absent from training camp until a deal gets done,” reported Smith.
Right now we don’t know why both sides can’t seem to get anything done. I’m sure the Jaguars are pushing for some language to be included with his contract that will protect them from any further run-ins with the law.
