After violating the league's substance abuse policy the NFL suspended Jacksonville receiver Justin Blackmon for four games last April.

With a new coaching staff and front office in town Blackmon after getting into an verbal altercation with a Dolphins cornerback during a preseason game where he had to be escorted back to the locker room by his teammates didn't make such a great first impression with his new bosses.

Now that the suspension is over and Blackmon was added to the active roster by the Jaguars on Saturday the 2012 first-round draft pick gets the chance to make amends.

“I look forward to putting this behind me and maturing and growing as a person" Blackmon said at the time of his suspension.

We'll see if he's matured at all in the past few months when he returns to the field and immediately upgrades a Jaguars receiving corps that has had to count on Cecil Shorts and fourth-round rookie Ace Sanders. He likely will help Blaine Gabbert particularly if you think about how Blackmon caught 38 passes for 615 yards and four touchdowns in the last seven games of 2012.
