WR Blackmon Says Sorry for DUI Arrest

Jaguars rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon apologized for his aggravated DUI arrest over the weekend.

“First off, I want to openly apologize to Gene [Smith], to Mr. Khan [owner Shad] and his family and Coach Mularkey and the whole organization, teammates, everyone that with my poor judgment over the weekend brought bad press to,” Blackmon said. I want to apologize to fans or people that looked up to me, that because of what I did, the decision I made over the weekend, that might be questioning who I am now. I just want to apologize for that and just let people know that it’s not who I am, it’s not who I am going to be. Just like talked with Coach yesterday and Gene, I’m looking to make things better and I will continue to do that, starting yesterday on.”

Blackmon said he does not have a drinking problem. “I just think I made a poor choice,” he said. “I put myself in a bad situation. It’s completely my fault, and I just gotta make better judgment on that. I’m going to seek whatever I need to seek to build from there.”
