Blake Bortles News
The Los Angeles Rams signed free-agent quarterback Blake Bortles to an undisclosed one-year deal on Monday. The former long-time Jaguars starter, Bortles will now serve as the backup to Jared Goff and won't have any fantasy value. The third overall pick in the 2014 draft impressed in 2017 but regressed big time last season and was benched midseason.
The Jacksonville Jaguars officially released quarterback Blake Bortles, the third overall pick in 2014, on Wednesday. The Jags were 24-49 in games that he started, and he was expected to be cut after the team signed Nick Foles in free agency. With the quarterback market pretty thin, Bortles should receive some interest, but it remains to be seen if he'll get another chance to start with a new team.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with free-agent quarterback Nick Foles on a four-year contract worth $88 million. It's uncertain how much of that is guaranteed money at this point. With Foles on the way to Northeast Florida, the team is expected to release QB Blake Bortles as soon as the signing of Foles is made official. Foles was the Super Bowl MVP in the Eagles' victory in Feb. 2018, and he saved their season in 2019 once Carson Wentz (back) went down to injury last season. The receiver corps isn't tremendous in Jacksonville, but Dede Westbrook and Donte Moncrief aren't awful. The team is likely to add more weapons either in free agency or via the draft.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles played what is likely his final game as a Jacksonville Jaguar in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, finishing with 107 yards on 15-for-28 passing while adding 15 rushing yards on four carries. Where Bortles plays next season is a huge question mark, but it would be a surprise to see him land a starting job anywhere. He should still be held in dynasty leagues until the situation has more clarity, but Bortles is trending downwards.
Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said that quarterback Blake Bortles will start in Week 17 against the Texans. Bortles was benched in favor of Cody Kessler several weeks ago, but the Jags will go back to Bortles after Kessler predictably failed. Bortles has more upside than Kessler, but he's been awful in his own right in 2018 and has completed just 60.8 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Bortles will be a weak QB2 in two-QB leagues against Houston.
