Jaguars owner still thinks Justin Blackmon has a future in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Jaguars got through another dismal season without the help of wide receiver Justin Blackmon for the most part. The receiver was suspended for 12 of the Jags’ 16 games last season for two different violations of the league’s substance abuse policy.

When Blackmon is reinstated, Jaguars owner Shad Khan wants Blackmon to remain with the team.

“It’s disappointing what happened to him, but for the young man, we want him to get his life together and be a part of the Jaguars,” Khan said, via the Florida Times-Union.

Khan also said he could be bringing in help for Blackmon by drafting a quarterback.

“I think there’s no mystery that we’re going to be taking a quarterback and maybe two,” Khan said. “It’s one of the maxims in modern football — the quarterback is key. You will get no debate on that. It’s 53 people on a team, but that one person really, really makes a difference.”
