JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars fans like Joshua Hull said they saw it coming.
"I think it was inevitable," he said.
Star player Justin Blackmon, following what's become a disturbing Jaguars trend: wide receivers with substance abuse issues.
"Matt Williams, Matt Jones, and Jimmy Smith. All of them. We've just had a problem," said local attorney and sports agent John Phillips.
He said entitlement is often an issue with troubled athletes, knowing they'll not be punished as harshly because of their status.
And as bad as it is for Blackmon, two DUI's and now a failed drug test, Phillips said they're not career-ending moves.
"I think he'll get more chances. At least one more chance. But I don't know of it's going be in Jacksonville," he said.
Blackmon has admitted he makes bad decisions, but never has he said he has a drug problem.
Phillips said, "At some point, he's headed to a life of ruin if he doesn't take off now and literally and meaningfully check into a rehab program."
But through it all, he still has his fans, at least for now.
Hull said, "He's a young guy. He makes mistakes. Hopefully, he'll learn his lesson and come back next year."
