The Jacksonville Jaguars intend to make Justin Blackmon take full responsibility for his arrest early this past Sunday morning, according to a team official. The rookie wide receiver was charged with an aggravated DUI after blowing a .24 BAC on a police breathalyzer. The Jags, weary with constant wide receiver troubles over the years, will meet with Blackmon later this week to make sure he starts his career on solid ground.
"It's (look in the) mirror time," the official said. "He's going to have to 'fess up,' take ownership of the situation, and lay out a course for dealing with this thing head-on."
It'd be one thing if this was Blackmon's first offense. He was arrested on DUI charges in 2010 as a sophomore at Oklahoma State. Though the offense was reduced to beer possession, the Jags are still exercising as much caution as they can to protect their investment.
Blackmon is facing a potential suspension from the NFL, and may have cost himself a fair bit of money as he has yet to sign a rookie contract with the Jaguars.
