However, since he was a first-round draft pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars, his character issues have come up again. And after last night’s preseason opener, he has angered his teammates and coaching staff.

Blackmon had a meeting with first-year Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley after he had to be escorted off the field against the Miami Dolphins. Blackmon was not even active in the game due to a groin injury.

He was called into Bradley’s office after an altercation with Dolphins corner back Nolan Carroll on the sidelines. Jaguars defensive end Jason Babin tried to break up the altercation between Carroll and Blackmon.

And Blackmon took offense to Babin telling the two players to “pipe down.”

He will miss the first four games of this season after being suspended in April for substance abuse. Blackmon will miss games against the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks, and Indianapolis Colts to open the season.

Last season, Blackmon had 64 receptions for 865 yards and 5 touchdowns in 16 games. He had 25 receptions and two touchdowns in the final four games of last season.
