Jaguars sign WR Kerry Taylor to take Justin Blackmon's roster spot

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville has brought in a young receiver to fill out its roster in the wake of Blackmon's suspension.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed wide receiver Kerry Taylor, taking the roster slot of Justin Blackmon, who is suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance policy.

Taylor, 24, is a two-year veteran, appearing in a total of three games over that time with the Arizona Cardinals. This year, Taylor has three catches for 40 yards and no touchdowns.

Blackmon's suspension is simply another large bump in the road for a Jacksonville team that may not win a game this season. Blackmon has let the team down repeatedly with his actions. He was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 campaign for substance abuse and, after playing in four games, has fallen back into the same trap.

This time though, Blackmon seems to be taking action to correct this issue by going to rehab, per CBS Sports.
