It doesn’t look like Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon will be returning to the NFL any time soon. The No. 5 pick from the 2012 NFL Draft is currently suspended indefinitely by the league and reports on Wednesday make it seem like things will stay that way for a while.
Mark Long of the Associated Press claims Blackmon applied for reinstatement to the NFL this offseason but was denied by the league. Mike Dempsey of 1010 XL in Jacksonville has confirmed that report. The assumption is that Blackmon failed another drug test or may have missed a test, which also counts as failing one.
