Justin Blackmon escorted from sideline after arguing with Dolphins, teammate


Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon is suspended for the first four games of the regular season and he’s not able to play right now because he’s recovering from groin surgery, so you’d might have thought he’d keep a low profile during Friday night’s game against the Dolphins.

That was not the case, however. Mark Long of the Associated Press reports that Blackmon got into a verbal altercation with Dolphins cornerback Nolan Carroll on the sideline during the first half of the game. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley had to step in to calm things down, but, according to Long, things flared up again when Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin suggested that Blackmon not talk trash with opponents when he’s facing a suspension.

That led to further arguing and Blackmon was eventually escorted from the field by running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Gene Frenette of the Florida Times Union reports that Bradley said after the game that he met with Blackmon to let him know he wasn’t happy about the receiver’s actions on the sideline.

“That’s not what we want on the sideline. That’s not who we are or what we want to become,” Bradley said.

Absent other concerns about a player’s maturity, this probably wouldn’t be too big a deal. For Blackmon, though, it fits with a pattern that hasn’t led to much good news in his brief NFL career.

    You can’t spell embarrassing without using “ass”. What a piece of work he has turned out to be. I actually feel bad for the Jag fans.

  6. vikestud says: Aug 9, 2013 11:43 PM

    I am so glad the Vikings didn’t draft this tool. Whew.

  7. UPYRS says: Aug 9, 2013 11:44 PM

    Sounds like a head case. Cut him

  8. onbucky96 says: Aug 9, 2013 11:44 PM

    Justin Blackmon, just keepin it real. What a dumbass.

  9. vbe2 says: Aug 9, 2013 11:45 PM

    He’ll be gone within 2 years.

    glad St Louis didn’t take him.

  12. davikes says: Aug 9, 2013 11:52 PM

    LOL. He got escorted off the field during preseason game that he wasn’t even playing in. Thats gotta be a first. Things are looking good there. It sounds like Babin and probably others on the team have had enough of his attitude. Babin wouldn’t have said anything if he thought Blackmon was generally a great guy who just got riled up this one time.

    I thought this kid would be a star!…. I was wrong. Shame. Could be Boldin 2.0 if he got his head on straight.

  16. braceyourselffor12 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:06 AM

    Awesome photo. It makes him look like the guy who tries to wash your window at a red light.

  17. jrcoop says: Aug 10, 2013 12:07 AM

    That darn character issue thing again. Funny how all those draft day steals end up anything but.

  18. rickrock6661982 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:08 AM

    Don’t forget Mike Williams 2.0

  20. scottman86 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:12 AM

    Raiders would trade 1st round picks for him.

  21. donth8thehorns says: Aug 10, 2013 12:12 AM

    Bust! So glad the Vikings didn’t take this Turd. He is everything the NFL is trying to avoid

  22. phinfan527 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:13 AM

    Randy Moss without the talent.

  23. michaeljacksonisback says: Aug 10, 2013 12:16 AM

    Thank God the Rams didn’t draft this scumbag, drunken fool! BUST!

  24. michaeljacksonisback says: Aug 10, 2013 12:17 AM

    I bet he’s been hanging out with Titus Young.

  25. rick1k6 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:20 AM

    Last three words in the article pretty much sums this up: brief NFL career.

  26. z561 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:21 AM

    Wish he would be more like Cecil shorts: classy, good-natured, and hardworking. Blackmon is a lazy drunk, and an idiot to boot. Guy has alot of talent but ya can’t fix stupid.

  27. skoobyfl says: Aug 10, 2013 12:28 AM

    I’d fire whoever decided to draft this guy.

  28. northstarnic says: Aug 10, 2013 12:28 AM

    To think, the Vikes considered taking this guy over Matt Kalil.

  29. gainedm says: Aug 10, 2013 12:32 AM

    Funny… when he was drafted, he was supposed to be “Dez Bryant without the baggage”… wrong on both counts.

  30. maddenisfordorks says: Aug 10, 2013 12:39 AM

    Feel sorry for us Jag fans … but not because of that guy.

    We should have an Amazing Race that features Justin Blackmon, Johnny Manziel, Ryan Leaf and Titus Young.

  31. ezg1 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:43 AM

    Anyone surprised by his behavior? This gut makes Dez appear mature!

  32. sgtmoon24 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:55 AM


    Blackmon is practicing for his post NFL career (washing cars). Which should be real soon.

  33. saintjohnwhodat says: Aug 10, 2013 12:57 AM

    He disappoints everyone left and right what a turd

  34. darocnessmonsta says: Aug 10, 2013 1:03 AM

    Gheez how old is he looks like a old ass Dude In this pic, Im a Cowboys fan And Oklahoma Cowboys fan adn can believe Iever thought this dude would be good As Dez Bryant Boy Was I Wrong!!!

  35. nflpoker says: Aug 10, 2013 1:11 AM

    Thank god he did it during an important game. LOL. Compared to him, he makes Zippy the Pinhead look like Einstein.

  36. chipsnsalsa9 says: Aug 10, 2013 1:17 AM

    Hah. Might want to rethink that “Dez Bryant with brain cells” comment Mr. Moon.

  37. omegalh says: Aug 10, 2013 1:23 AM

    He looks way too much like FredEx not to be a bust.

  38. therealhardt says: Aug 10, 2013 1:24 AM

    you can’t fix stupid…

  39. poormanspoison says: Aug 10, 2013 1:25 AM

    Good thing cooper wasn’t on the team he woulda called him blackman….

  40. jshawaii22 says: Aug 10, 2013 1:28 AM

    Welcome to the NFL, Mr. Bradley… you watched Pete turn every player who wasn’t into his way go away in 1 -2 years. This dufus kid will be one of the first to go. New England?

    This is why the NFL wants Offset language in the contracts. This kids the posterboy.

  43. trevsabeast says: Aug 10, 2013 2:30 AM

    Wait are you serious? He trashed talked in a game? Let’s cut him.

  44. nflmadnness says: Aug 10, 2013 3:26 AM

    What a headhead jerk….:-)

  45. deezenucks says: Aug 10, 2013 3:32 AM

    He’s hardly a bust yet but he’s close. If he had a legit qb last year I’d be more inclined to agree. He’s got a whole lot of work to do if he wants to stick in the league, starting with his head.

  46. mcguenther13 says: Aug 10, 2013 3:47 AM

    That picture alone deserves a “C’Mon man”‘!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. joetoronto says: Aug 10, 2013 4:54 AM

    What a mistake drafting this turd. All the signs were there, but they did it anyway.


  48. mikeyfins says: Aug 10, 2013 5:01 AM

    Total BUST!

  51. bobzilla1001 says: Aug 10, 2013 5:47 AM

    No wonder Bill Polian didn’t draft him.

  53. pmuraus says: Aug 10, 2013 6:39 AM

    Justin wants to play, he’s been injured for the past month or so and is suspended for the first 4 games of the season. We know he is hotheaded and young, but he is our team’s future.
    Now, if you want to say he argued with his teammate (Babin) fine, but maybe it was just a veteran telling him it’s not the time or the place. Coach Gus talked to him and he was on the sidelines again from the 3rd quarter on. He’s got a real ‘family’ in Gus and GM Dave to make him a better young man. The team will not give up on him, because if you’d follow the offseason, he’s been a real motivator to the team and is in no doubt 1st string WR. We support our players. (59000 attended the 1st preseason game).
    Go JAGS. Peter form Slovenia

  54. tommyturbo1969 says: Aug 10, 2013 6:40 AM

    funny how they said dez would be the bust…ill take him all day long…..

  55. fukpittsburgh says: Aug 10, 2013 6:59 AM

    Not really sure how you could call him a bust when he had a pretty solid rookie year on a pretty terrible team. Sure he has some off the field issues but he’s also only 23. This kid is raw and I look for him to be a perennial pro bowler within the next 2 years.

  56. brettfavresmidget says: Aug 10, 2013 7:13 AM

    Escorted by MJD = knocked out cold by MJD and drug to the locker room

  63. cwk22 says: Aug 10, 2013 8:15 AM

    I’m sure “thegreatgabbert” will say he was just being competitive. Or that Blaine played great but his receivers sucked! Ha ha ha….

    Your move Braylon……….

    Where is the Jag guy who wrote that the fish suck? I guess he is busy down at Burger King. Bill

  67. thejuddstir says: Aug 10, 2013 8:47 AM

    There’s 31 teams that are so glad they didn’t draft this turd and one that wishes the wouldn’t have.

  68. plt2006 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:02 AM

    Blackmon has been cheering on teammates at training camp quite vociferously and it had gone over well. I think he feels like it’s the only way he can contribute right now and he wrongly took that attitude/activity into the preseason game. Knucklehead move.

    Also, I have spoken with some other people around town who’ve met him at social functions and swear he’s a nice and level headed kid, and that maybe he’s just one of those people who gets caught literally EVERY time he steps out of line. Not saying driving drunk or even buzzed is right, but I’d venture that plenty of people on this site have done so and not gotten caught.

    I hope you’s learning from this and will get his act together, as he’s got just too much talent to squander it on foolishness.

  69. jagtiger says: Aug 10, 2013 9:06 AM

    What a dirtbag!

  70. glazerh8er says: Aug 10, 2013 9:32 AM

    So Gabbert plays worse than Sanchez, and Blackmon still can’t keep his cool. It’s too bad Kahn can’t put on the pads because he’s the only elite player they have!!

  71. glazerh8er says: Aug 10, 2013 9:32 AM

    apologies MJD.

  72. tooz72 says: Aug 10, 2013 9:33 AM

    at least he’ll have Gabbert throwing to him in week #5, oh wait, thats not a good thing

    really? why? Reggie M. has cleaned out all the undesirables since he’s been there..ohhhhh i get it, you’re using an old tired Al Davis reference, someone who has been dead for going on 2 years because you lack originality and a brain

  74. bigwinintx says: Aug 10, 2013 9:37 AM

    T.O. 2.0?

    Well, at least T.O. could actually play…

    Gets multiple DUI’s before his rookie camp and then has the audacity to hold out.

  77. GenXJay says: Aug 10, 2013 9:45 AM

    Was he drunk?

  78. EJ says: Aug 10, 2013 10:38 AM

    Blackmon is nowhere near being a bust. What is going to kill his career is not his play, Its stupid crap like this.

    If this kid wants to make it in this league, he’s going to have to start keeping his mouth shut and learn what the definition of respect is.

    Blackmon is super talented and could have a very long and successful career, but only if he changes his way.

  79. jerranamo says: Aug 10, 2013 10:47 AM

    Some of these comments have zero thought behind them.. BUST? No way, he had decent numbers as a rookie WR (865yds) Those were hard, earned yards playing for the Jaguars – no running game and no QB.

    Someone also mentioned that the guy who drafted him should be fired? DONE – his name was Gene Smith, the Jags GM. He was fired after last years 2-14 season.

  80. jerranamo says: Aug 10, 2013 10:48 AM

    He may be a head case.. but it’s definitely too early to label him a BUST.

  81. endzone says: Aug 10, 2013 11:07 AM

    One exceedingly angry dude. Jags might want to cut him Before he’s booked for something rather than After he really embarrasses their team in the National media. Doesn’t matter how talented he is behind bars. Aaron Hernandez is talented too.

  82. chiadam says: Aug 10, 2013 11:20 AM

    What a Jag.

  83. jimmyjames65 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:25 AM

    Jags 0-16. Ravens 19-0.

  84. jimmyjames65 says: Aug 10, 2013 11:35 AM

    I would like to thank the Jags for Daryl Smith. The guy can play football. And he didn’t deserve the Jaguars. It’s nice to see Ozzie get a player to replace an old and retired Ray Lewis. Smith is going to be a star on a potent Ravens defense.

  85. emperorzero says: Aug 10, 2013 11:38 AM

    It’s early in his career, but so far indications are the Rams dodged a bullet not being able to draft him.

  86. annes22 says: Aug 10, 2013 12:04 PM

    Just another stupid suspended player with NO brain at all. Wait for him to be a bust.

  87. thegonz13 says: Aug 10, 2013 1:07 PM

    If this guy is the future of the franchise, I feel terrible for Jags fans. This guy is beyond stupid.

  88. Ferdinand says: Aug 10, 2013 4:35 PM

    Lots of people calling him a headcase, but he might just have been drunk again. He has a long history of alcohol-related arrests and his statements after getting in trouble the last couple of times made it clear he was an alcoholic in denial. I was hoping he would have spent the off-season getting treatment for it. Guess not.

  89. blaineondemhoes says: Aug 10, 2013 6:41 PM

    ohmegerd jagz r terrbil. London LA tarps. irrelevent, ravens got screwed by taggyboo, packers fans like scrimmmmmages and cheese. Did I cover it all? Meanwhile just shy of 60k watched that horror show, but the Jags have no fans, nah. Did I mention tarpppps?
