06:53 PM ET 05.01 | Pro Football Talk has pointed out since Justin Blackmon's suspension that contractual language would allow the team to release him now without any further financial burden. That???s an interesting bit of news. But I know for sure the Jacksonville Jaguars have no intention of releasing him. New general manager Dave Caldwell and new coach Gus Bradley might have inherited Blackmon from the previous regime, but that doesn???t mean they don???t like him. Blackmon was widely regarded as the best receiver in the draft last year, and Jaguars GM Gene Smith traded up to draft him fifth overall. It was a bold move that addressed a very weak roster spot. Blackmon might have issues, but he???s also got something the Jaguars need a lot more of: talent.

3 strikes and you're suspended for 4 games. 1 more strike and it's a whole season.

Faith in this guy could get tiresome for the Jags. Of course, faith in the Jags could get tiresome, too.
