"Get in the playbook, try to catch up on the new things that they've thrown in, you know, try and catch up with all the things they've been going over for the last week and a half, two weeks," Blackmon said. "Film work, watching video. And just trying to catch up on everything."
"A good relationship, just as far as we been, of course we can grow, and I plan on growing better and better each day," Blackmon said. "Hopefully we can get out there and getting more chemistry from where we already are."
Blackmon has a lot of work to do, but his presence is a positive development for Jacksonville. Offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowskiadmitted Monday that the team's passing game is "not very good." Laurent Robinson, a big-money free-agent acquisition likely to start opposite Blackmon, has struggled in camp.
Blackmon's arrival is a necessary part of trying to move the unit forward.
