Jaguars have 'moved on' from Justin Blackmon for 'this year'

Florida Times-Union - [Full Article]

When asked about Justin Blackmon's future, Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell responded:

"I think we've covered that," Caldwell said. "We've moved on for this year."

When asked if he would cut Blackmon, Caldwell said:

"We can't [cut him]. If that even happens."

HC Gus Bradley also stated his disappointment in the situation.

"I feel at times there's probably a little emptiness," Bradley said. "There are some unknowns there and you don't know how it's working. You don't want to shut it off. I was hoping it would be better than where it is going. We haven't heard much and it doesn't sound like it's going in the right direction. Like Dave said, we can't count on him."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Jaguars seem to have moved on from Blackmon after drafting two receivers - Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson -- in the second round of the Draft. They'll join Cecil Shorts, Ace Sanders and Mike Brown to form a young but talented receiving corps. It may not come together quickly, but if Blake Bortles is the real deal, the Jaguars' passing game should be much improved in 1-2 seasons.
