General manager David Caldwell said Tuesday the Jaguars have had no contact with Blackmon and believe his absence from the game for 21 months makes it unlikely the former first-round pick will ever play in the NFL again.
"I have not heard anything and I guess I harbor a little bit of hope but realistically I think when you're away from the game for two-and-a-half years what you were once is not what you probably will be," Caldwell said. "Your skills do erode and especially if you're not staying in tip-top shape and you're not in football shape.
"I don't know to expect but I would say common sense would probably be if you haven't played football in two-and-a-half years apparently that's not a priority for you."
Blackmon, whom the Jaguars took with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, hasn't practiced or played since Week 8 of the 2013 season. That was when the NFL suspended him indefinitely for his third violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He must apply for reinstatement and then go through a nearly two-month long vetting process before he can hope to get back on the field.
