Justin Blackmon can't seem to stay out of trouble.
Already suspended indefinitely by the NFL for repeated violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver was arrested Wednesday in Edmond, Oklahoma and charged with marijuana possession. He was released after posting a $657 bond.
Edmond, Oklahoma Police spokeswoman Jenny Monroe told the Associated Press that an officer detected a ''heavy smell of marijuana'' coming from the car after it was stopped when police saw it move around stopped traffic to get to a turn lane.
Blackmon admitted to the police that he had smoked ''a blunt'' while driving and had another in the vehicle.
Blackmon's future with Jacksonville--and the NFL--is in serious question.
He was suspended the first four games last season for violating the league's drug policy. He played four games before getting suspended again.
''This is no longer a football issue. As his teammates, you hope he can do everything he can to get his life squared away," teammate Paul Posluzny revealed to reporters.
"We feel for him and we obviously want the best for him because he's a good kid at heart. We want the best for him. We hope that he can come out of this. He's a good guy. He's fighting through some things now and hopefully he's able to fix that and get his life back on the right."
Blackmon didn't exactly start his career on the right foot. About a month after he was drafted, he was arrested for DUI in Stillwater, Oklahoma after registering a breath test that was three times the legal limit.
Blackmon was the fifth overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2012. He has 93 catches for 1,280 yards and six touchdowns in the 20 games he has played for the Jaguars.
The receiver was a two-time All-American during his college career at Oklahoma State and a Biletnikoff Award winner, which recognizes the top wide receiver in college football.
