Justin Blackmon Already Working With Jaguars First Team

Justin Blackmon signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, and it hasn't taken long for the Oklahoma State product to work his way up the depth chart. Blackmon is already practicing with the first team offense, as Jacksonville head coach Mike Mularkey wants Blackmon and quarterback Blaine Gabbert to work together as much as possible.

"I’m trying to get him reps, as many reps as we can with Blaine," head coach Mike Mularkey said after practice. "He’s got to hear those plays and rep those plays as quickly and as fast as we can get him going."
