Jaguars And Justin Blackmon Agree To Terms
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville first-round pick Justin Blackmon has agreed to terms with the Jaguars.
Blackmon missed the first 11 days of training camp. The wide receiver was the fifth selection in the draft.
Blackmon was arrested in Stillwater, Okla., on June 3 and charged with aggravated DUI when he registered a .24 alcohol level, three times the legal limit. He later apologized and indicated that he would stop drinking. Blackmon pleaded guilty at his court hearing July 24.
Blackmon isn't likely to play in the Jaguars' first preseason game Friday against the New York Giants. New rules call for a player to have three days of non-contact work before he's allowed to put on full pads.
The team said Monday he would sign the deal Monday night or Tuesday morning.
