Bradley Says He Still Supports Blackmon

Justin Blackmon

Just like general manager Dave Caldwell did earlier this week, Jaguars coach Gus BradleyGus Bradley threw his support behind receiver Justin Blackmon in the wake of his four-game suspension levied by the NFL on Tuesday.

Blackmon was disciplined without pay for violating the NFL’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse; he entered the program because of his aggravated DUI arrest last year in Oklahoma.

“I told Justin I do trust him,” Bradley told Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union Thursday. “We both have to earn each other’s trust and I don’t want trust to be mistaken for being naïve.”

Bradley said he has had “six or seven conversations,” with Blackmon since the league alerted the team and player of the ban.

“He understands we’re disappointed in what took place,” Bradley said. “I really try to maintain my focus on making sure he has a clear vision of what we expect from him. We’ve had great conversations since this came out.”
