The Jaguars and QB Blake Bortles have agreed to a new 3-year, $54 million contract with $26.5 million guaranteed. The organization has been lukewarm on Bortles (and rightfully so), but obviously thinks he's their best option for now. It's actually a relatively short and cheap deal for a starting QB -- and it reduces Bortles' 2018 cap hit by $9 million. It's possible this contract is structured so that the Jags can get out of it as early as next offseason, and it wouldn't be surprising to see them add a QB at some point during the upcoming draft. Bortles is at least locked in as Jacksonville's 2018 starter, though. As shaky as his play has been at times, he's finished as a top 13 QB in each of the past 3 seasons.
The Packers are releasing QB Blake Bortles now that Aaron Rodgers has returned, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. Expect Green Bay to hit the regular season with just Jordan Love behind Rodgers on the active roster. We’ll see if Bortles lands on another roster
The Packers signed QB Blake Bortles. The 29-year-old has attempted just 2 passes over the last 2 years after 5 mostly disappointing seasons in Jacksonville. The real takeaway here, of course, is that Green Bay might be preparing to be without disgruntled QB Aaron Rodgers. We'll continue to monitor the situation.
The Broncos have signed QB Blake Bortles. QB Jeff Driskel will get the 1st crack at replacing the injured Drew Lock -- but Bortles could hit the field if Driskel struggles. Both Bortles and Driskel bring enough rushing upside to be QB2 considerations in fantasy.
QB Blake Bortles has inked a 1-year deal with the Rams. After an up-but-mostly-down 5 seasons in Jacksonville, he'll spend at least 1 year backing up Jared Goff in Los Angeles. Perhaps spending some time under offensive whiz kid Sean McVay will be good for Bortles. He'll obviously hold no 2019 fantasy value barring a Goff injury.
Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will start Sunday's finale against the Texans, HC Doug Marrone announced. QB Cody Kessler was timid and mostly ineffective in his 4 starts, completing 63% of his passes but averaging 5.5 yards per attempt and totaling just 1 TD. At least Bortles will take some shots. He's in play as a QB2 and cheap DFS tournament dart -- and also gives the Texans defense more upside.
