  • Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys talk extension; deal not close

    Updated: 36 min ago

    The Dallas Cowboys have had several discussions with the agent for receiver Dez Bryant about a lucrative, long-term extension, but the sides are not close to a deal as the team opens training camp. The former OSU receiver b elieves he has earned the right to be among the highest-paid receivers in the league, but he understands he likely will have to wait to cash in with a new contract. Coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance, Bryant is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is due to make $1.78 million this season. "It feels good to know that things are being talked about, but I'm going to let it take care of itself," Bryant told ESPNDallas.com after the Cowboys' first practice of camp Thursday. "I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of."

  • Justin Blackmon not only Jacksonville Jaguars receiver hurt by substance abuse issues

    Published: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Following another arrest of former Oklahoma State receiver Justin Blackmon, the Jacksonville Jaguars' history of receivers with NFL substance abuse policy violations continues to grow. Ace Sanders said Tuesday that he was facing a four-game suspension for a second violation of the league's policy. That was before Blackmon was arrested late Wednesday for possession of marijuana. The Jags' strange history of substance abuse within its receiver ranks dates back more than a decade, writes ESPN's Mike DiRocco.

  • Justin Blackmon: Inner circle was mum on former OSU receiver

    Published: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    A month from yesterday, ESPN's Jacksonville Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco wrote that not many people know what's up with Justin Blackmon. "Very few people know where Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon is, what he's doing and whether he is receiving treatment for substance-abuse," DiRocco wrote. We know a little more now, as Blackmon was arrested late Wednesday for possession of marijuana in Edmond. Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette wrote in June that those around Blackmon were keeping a tight lid on what was going on with the former OSU star. "That's my son. I'm mom and try not to be the person that's sharing [information about Blackmon]," said Donna Blackmon. The Jaguars have kept their distance from the former No. 5 overall pick this offseason. Jacksonville drafted two receivers in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and the team has said they don't expect Blackmon to be reinstated from his NFL substance abuse suspension in 2014. DiRocco said teammates and former coaches have had sporadic contact with Blackmon.
