While the news of Justin Blackmon's DUI arrest has died down over the past few days with the news of Maurice Jones-Drew's hold out, some of his teammates hadn't spoken with him since the incident. One of those teammates was wide receiver Laurent Robinson, who the Jaguars signed to a big deal during free agency, and he made it a point to speak with Blackmon at the Jaguars practice on Tuesday.

"I was out of town all last week and I didn't want to send him a text," Robinson said. "I just talked to him a little bit (Tuesday) at practice and just told him that you've got to grow up. NFL players are targets, so you have to stay low key, low profile. Everybody makes mistakes, and he's got to learn from it and keep doing better."

The rookie would do well to heed Robinson's advice, as Robinson has experienced quite a few of the ups and downs that is the career roller coaster of the NFL.
