Justin Blackmon in good condition after single-car accident in Florida.
Hearing Jacksonville Jaguars’ receiver Justin Blackmon’s name in the same sentence as “car accident” makes me cringe. He’s had a sketchy history with drinking and driving, so when he was involved in a single-car accident in Jacksonville Saturday, it had to be a big scare for everyone.
Thankfully, alcohol was not involved when a rear tire blew out on Blackmon’s 2009 Denali as he was driving down the highway, and he is in good condition following the incident. The car left the road and collided with a guard rail, and Blackmon was wearing his seat belt. This is a plus for Blackmon, because what could have been a scary situation shows that he appears to have matured after his previous DUI charges.
The Jaguars are currently making all sorts of noise in free agency, and Blackmon hopes to have a breakout season in 2014.
