Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell confirms Justin Blackmon is done in Jacksonville.
Not sure if Blackmon and Browns wide out Josh Gordon were getting high together which prompted Blackmon's eventually release by the Jaguars, but whatever the reason, and there have been plenty, Blackmon will no longer be a Jag, which prompted the team to draft wide outs Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. The Jags can not officially release Blackmon until he is reinstated which he will have to apply for before the start of the 2014 season. By releasing Blackmon the team washes their hands of the troubled receiver, who has already been suspended twice for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, and in essence free up a large chunk of money to sign players the hope will take their career much more seriously.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Tom Brady completed 23-of-42 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots 30-24 OT loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Brady turned in one of his better games of the season and Sunday and while he's certainly had better numbers in previous games it is hard to ignore the lack of weapons on the offensive side of the ball that he had at his disposal with injuries to Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola over the last three weeks. Brady tossed three more touchdown passes on Sunday night, connecting with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler and Brandon Bolden for the scores. Late in the fourth quarter the Patriots passing attack suffered another tremendous blow as Rob Gronkowski was carted off with a knee injury which at the time appeared to be severe and yet Brady still managed to drive the Patriots down the field for a game tying field goal try to send the contest into OT. If Gronk is forced to miss any extended amount of time the fantasy impact for Brady will take another big blow as the available offensive weapons will be reduced to the very bottom of the depth chart.
