JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville Jaguars had plenty of reaction to the news of Justin Blackmon’s arrest when they arrived to training camp on Thursday. The Jags no longer are concerned about Blackmon’s football career, instead about his personal life.

Head Coach Gus Bradley: “We have not had much contact with him so right now all I can say is I pray that he gets the help that he needs.”

Owner Shad Khan: “We want to keep him as a player. He’s not part of the team obviously but I think it’s very important for him to get the help – that’s the most important thing.”

Quarterback Chad Henne:  “It’s a difficult situation. It’s kind of ongoing and all we can hope for is he finds a way to get on the right track and save his life.”
