Justin Blackmon, who got himself in the crosshairs of the NFL's personal conduct policy with a DUI arrest earlier this off-season, says he doesn't want to make the types of mistakes that Terrell Owens and Pacman Jones have made.
Blackmon, the Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick, listened to the cautionary tales Owens and Jones told at the NFL's rookie symposium and perhaps the message began to sink in, he said on Sirius XM NFL Radio via FoxSports.com.
“It’s powerful any time you have a player share something that happened bad for him they could have avoided,” Blackmon said.
Owens has worn out welcomes in multiple NFL locations and has also had well-publicized financial issues, while Jones had more visits from the police than doughnut shop earlier in his career.
