Caldwell says he hopes the former Oklahoma State star returns in 2015 "because we know he's talented." But considering Blackmon is suspended indefinitely for repeated violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy and has spent time in rehab, Caldwell says his potential reinstatement should be treated "as a luxury."
Caldwell says "we know he's also a good person that's fighting a tough battle. ... If he comes back, that's great. If he doesn't, we can't count on it."
The GM hopes the NFL makes a decision on Blackmon's potential reinstatement before the draft.
