 Justin Blackmon Contract: Jaguars, Rookie WR Talking Daily

Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick wide receiver Justin Blackmon is one of two unsigned first-round draft picks, the other of which is Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright. The Jaguars and Blackmon have been speaking on a daily basis about getting a contract done, according to a report by ProFootballTalk, with most speculating that it has to do with the team wanting to stick in offset language that will protect the team if Blackmon runs in with the law again.

Mike Florio thinks they might be trying to go a step further:

We think the Jags are going farther, trying to insert language that would nullify remaining guarantees if Blackmon gets in trouble again. That would allow the Jaguars to move on and owe Blackmon nothing further.

The Jaguars have plenty of reason to stick to their guns in this instance, given Blackmon was arrested for an aggravated DUI before he even stepped on the football field. Blackmon's agent also has plenty of reason to f!ght against such language, because he doesn't want to be that agent next year trying to sign players and be the one who got a client such a bad rookie deal.

Some middle ground will have to be met however, but I'd expect to see Blackmon signed sometime before the scrimmage on Friday evening. Not a predication or report, just my expectation.
His agent is probably most at fault here. He really !!ed himself getting that DUI. Especially after they just had a meeting before breaking from rookie camp talking about conduct. What a !!head.

Yeah. I don't see why his agent has such a problem with offset language. Blackmon will still get paid it's just a matter of the Jags protecting themselves just in case he decides to get his Barney Gumble on again.

He should know he !!ed up and his contract will have fine print that will say if he !!s up again he'll get less than half his contract. What an idiot though.

I'm tired of these niccaz trying to throw they weight around, better wrap things up before he ends up like michael crabtree.

Blaine Gabbert needs all the practice he can get with that nicca, too.

Mainly it has been about certain guarantees in the contract. I know the delay with matt kalil's contract was about if the 4th year would be guaranteed or not.

Kendall will be signed, he wants his 4th year guaranteed but no other 1st round rookie passed the 16th draft pick got the full 4th year guaranteed. I guess since Tampa did it with their 21st draft pick last year he wants the same. I say !! it and pay it, we have the second most cap space after the Jags.
