Itís known that Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon will serve a four-game suspension to start the season for violation of the leagueís substance-abuse policy. Itís not known what he specifically did to cause the suspension.

Per a league source, the suspension came from something else besides Blackmonís 2012 guilty plea to DUI, something not covered by the policy against performance-enhancing drugs, like Adderall. Under the substance-abuse policy, a suspension arises only after at least three violations of the policy against the use of recreational drugs or alcohol. In Blackmonís case, itís possible that he committed only two violations, since the DUI guilty plea likely put him in stage one of the substance-abuse program.

Either way, itís clear that Blackmonís rough year has continued well beyond the night on which he was driving a car with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.24 percent. And now the Jaguars have to decide whether to give him a second chance, again.

Apparently, former NFL defensive back Cliff Harris and former NFL receiver Titus Young have launched a new competition.

Itís apparently called ďletís see who can get arrested the most times.Ē

Harris currently leads, with three in nine days. But Young isnít far behind, thanks to two arrests that came on the same day.

I guess we now know why Jeff Fisher cut him so quickly too. What a useless sack with athletic skills.

Young was arrested around 11:30 p.m. Friday after police responded to a 911 call from a person saying some one was trying to break into their house on the 3700 block of Calle Casino in San Clemente, Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Lt. Joe Balicki said.


Young needs some serious help. This is ridiculous at this point. He can say goodbye to his NFL career. Best thing for him at this point would be some jail time. I dont know what else will wake him up at this point.

There's something wrong with this guy, he needs help.

http://deadspin.com/titus-young-will-take-a-nap-in-your-at-t-store-496122722



"Living in The Detroit suburbs and working for AT&T I would regularly get Lions players in my store. One of particular note was Titus Young. One night he came up after we had closed and started banging on the door. We couldn't unlock the doors because of policy, but he proceeded to hold up his driver's license to the window and say, "Do you know who I am?? I'm Titus Young". We ignored him.

The next day he came back during business hours and started yelling that we wouldn't let him in. He also demanded everything in the store should have been given to him for free. He had his sister with him who seemed like his assistant at the time. She was extremely professional and nice, almost like a parent trying to keep their child in line. After his sister took over dealing with us, Titus fell asleep on the bench and started snoring extremely loud in front of the other customers and employees. [...]

A picture of Titus snoring is attached. Enjoy!"

What a truly sad individual, who just absolutely threw his chance at a good life away.

His behavior leads me to believe that someone should be doing a case study on him.

Justin Blackmon was asked whether he would go to rehab, a question he avoided. He did answer a direct question about whether he had a substance abuse problem.

Blackmon: ďNo, I would say I donít. Out of this whole thing one of the main things I would say that I had a problem with was just making a poor decision, making a selfish decision at that and not thinking about the long-term of it and just thinking about at the time. If you want to ask if I have a problem? I have a problem with making a poor decision.Ē

It's great that he realizes he has a problem, but so far I'm hearing nothing about how he's going to fix this.

Same thing happened during the draft process. He fooled the Jags into thinking he was a changed man and that he simply made a mistake, just for him to get arrested right after the draft.

He knows he has a problem but continues to show that he doesnt really care at this point.

Here is an interesting nugget from the Reno News Journal: Before he agreed to serve as a coaching consultant for the Kansas City Chiefs, Chris Ault weighed interest from both the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.

As you might know, Ault is the former Nevada coach who is credited with designing and popularizing the "Pistol" offense that reached the NFL mainstream last season. (He was the college coach of current San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.) Ault told the News Journal that he isn't sure whether the Chiefs want him to teach the Pistol to their offense or coach up their defense on how to stop it, and it's fair to wonder the same for the Packers and Vikings.

^ yes, the Chiefs/Reid have hired both Childress and Ault as consultants.

Chuck Muncie, a three-time All-Pro running back known for his imposing size and powerful stye, has died at the age of 60. The cause of death was a heart attack, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

After a standout career at Cal during which he came in second place in Heisman Trophy voting as a senior, Muncie went to the Saints as the third overall pick in the 1976 NFL draft. His best season in New Orleans came in 1979, when he carried 238 for 1,198 yards and 11 touchdowns, and also caught 40 passes for 308 yards.

But Muncie frequently expressed his unhappiness in New Orleans, and he was traded to the Chargers during the 1980 season. Muncie was even better in San Diego than he had been in New Orleans, and his presence as a runner bolstered an already strong Chargers offense. In 1981 he led the league with 19 touchdowns, and he was outstanding in the playoffs after that season.

Peyton Manning will earn $40 million guaranteed over the next two seasons, in $20 million chunks for 2013 and 2014, respectively. The Broncos can avoid the $20 million payment in 2014 only if Manning suffers injury to the same area of his neck that kept him from playing in 2011.

For any other injury or condition, the Broncos are on the hook. Which means that, barring compelling medical evidence that any new neck injury arises directly from the old neck injury, Peyton is getting $40 million over the next two years.
