(NEW YORK) -- Banned Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been arrested for the third time, as police charged him with possession of marijuana.
Blackmon was arrested in Edmond, Oklahoma, after police stopped him for a traffic violation and could smell the odor of marijuana inside the car. Blackmon posted bail and was released.
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan said Thursday that the team intends to keep the troubled wide receiver.
"We want him to get help he needs," Khan said.
Blackmon is currently serving an indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He was handed the suspension last November by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
"It's just a difficult situation,'' quarterback Chad Henne said. "It's kind of ongoing. All we can do is pray that he finds a way to get on the right track and save his life.''
Blackmon was the fifth overall pick in 2012 and caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns that year.
