Justin Blackmon DUI: Jaguars Could Structure Contract To Protect Themselves

Ever since the DUI arrest for wide receiver Justin Blackmon, there has been buzz around his contract situation. Blackmon has not yet been signed by Jacksonville so his recent arrest is likely to cost him money right away. In addition to that, the Jaguars are attempting to write language into his contract that could protect the franchise, monetarily, should he get arrested again.

With Blackmon possibly facing disciplinary action by the NFL office, the Jaguars want to protect themselves from any possible losses that could be incurred if Blackmon winds up being suspended. The Jaguars spent a high pick on Blackmon to help quarterback Blaine Gabbert, so they hope that this won't continue.
