  Jaguars | Blake Bortles no longer in pain    Tue Mar 27, 01:14 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is training without pain and has 'no limitations' after undergoing wrist surgery this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars committed to Bortles with a three-year extension earlier this offseason. They are in a Super Bowl window and will see if they can get past the AFC Championship in 2018.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles in rare company    Mon Feb 26, 07:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has thrown for 90 career passing touchdowns and just under 15,000 passing yards. Former NFL QBs Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Drew Bledsoe and Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford are the only quarterbacks in NFL history to achieve those numbers before turning 26 years old. Bortles turns 26 in April.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles receives new deal    Sat Feb 24, 07:30 PM

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles agreed to a new three-year contract with the Jaguars Saturday, Feb. 24, worth $54 million, according to a source. The deal includes $26 million in guaranteed money and could be worth as much as $66.5 million with incentives.

Footballguys view: Bortles cap number in 2018 was reduced down to ten million, which will free up space to potentially bring back Allen Robinson, Marqise Lee, or Aaron Colvin. The team is really only committed to him financially through 2019, and releasing him after this season wouldn't be crippling. This doesn't foreclose them from taking a quarterback early in this year's draft or signing a backup with starter potential in free agency.

  Jaguars | Replacement for Blake Bortles?    Fri Feb 23, 09:47 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars are actively pursuing upgrades to QB Blake Bortles, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are one quarterback away from a team that could contend for the Super Bowl. With an upgrade at the position they should be seen as a favorite in the AFC. We'll see if they jump in the frenzy around Kirk Cousins or decide to go in a different direction this offseason.

  Jaguars | Competition for Blake Bortles?    Sun Feb 11, 10:24 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars could select a quarterback in the first or second round of the 2018 NFL Draft to provide competition for QB Blake Bortles, according Mike DiRocco of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars picked up Bortles fifth-year option but it doesn't mean he's set as the starter or any sort of long-term answer at the position. In fact, Bortles is arguably the weakest link on the team. In the first or second round, the Jaguars may be able to find some player like Lamar Jackson (Louisville) or Mason Rudolph (Oklahoma State).

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles expected to stay     Tue Jan 30, 04:22 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) is expected to remain with the Jaguars despite recently undergoing surgery on his injured wrist, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport said the plan all along has been for Bortles to return as starter.

Footballguys view: That's a good story now that they don't really have a choice unless his wrist heals by mid March. It is possible that they had always planned on bringing Bortles back, but the Jaguars would only be committed for one year and could still draft a quarterback this year as a possible replacement in 2019.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles undergoes wrist surgery    Mon Jan 29, 11:56 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) had surgery on his right wrist Friday, Jan. 26, for a condition that had bothered him since December of 2016, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Bortles actually played better as the season went on, save for a poor wild card performance against the Bills. This development could cause his 19 million dollar fifth year guarantee to lock in if he is still injured in early March when the new league year starts.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles wants to stay    Mon Jan 22, 05:47 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he would be 'thrilled' to remain with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The fourth-year quarterback will be an impending free agent in 2019.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars didn't pick up his fifth-year option last year, and that's why Bortles is set to hit the open market. The team played at an incredibly high level this year but in crunch time against the Patriots, Bortles couldn't find a way to get it done. We'll see if they go to a guy like Alex Smith via trade or Kirk Cousins via free agency this offseason.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles falls short of Super Bowl    Sun Jan 21, 06:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 23-of-36 passes for 293 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Jan. 21.

Footballguys view: Bortles was brilliant early, but couldn't find enough plays in the fourth quarter to put the game away or come back late once the Patriots recaptured the lead. The Jaguars will have a decision to make about whether to pay Bortles like a starter in an improved, but still uneven at times fourth season. Chances are he'll start for them next season.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles not on injury report    Fri Jan 19, 04:31 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is not on the injury report for the AFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: Bortles is trending the right way with this injury and with his play on the field. He rushed for more yards than he passed for in the Wild Card Round against the Bills, but in the Divisional Round against the Steelers Bortles had 214 yards passing, one touchdown with zero turnovers and zero sacks taken. He'll need top play an efficient game against the Patriots in order to advance to the Super Bowl.

  Jaguars | | Blake Bortles practices Thursday    Thu Jan 18, 05:01 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

Footballguys view: Bortles is one of the four choices you have, yes he sure is. As for one of the better choices? Not so much. We believe we can trust Case Keenum and Tom Brady more than a guy who has been prone to bad moments and will have most of his offense run through the backfield.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles completed 14 of his 26 pass attempts for 214 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the AFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Jan. 14. He also ran five times for 35 yards.

Footballguys view: Bortles didn't make any big mistakes and helped the Jaguars get off to a great start with a pass-first approach to open the game. He'll be asked to be steady, if unspectacular next week at Foxboro.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 12, and is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Bortles rushed for more yards than he passed in the Wild Card game against the Bills. That will have to be altered drastically if the Jaguars get into a shootout with the Steelers on Sunday. Expect the team to get RB Leonard Fournette the ball early and often.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles takes part in practice    Thu Jan 11, 03:22 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Bortles may compare his popularity woes with those of LeBron James, but we might take James over him at fantasy quarterback most weeks. OK, maybe not, but we don't trust Bortles, nor do the Jaguars, which is why he won't throw much unless Jacksonville is in real trouble. If they are to beat Pittsburch in Pittsburgh, it will be on the ground, not with Bortles throwing it. Avoid him this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: Bortles ran for more yards than he passed for in the Wild Card game last weekend. He'll need to reverse that if the team gets into a shootout on the road against the Steelers on Sunday.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles more successful with legs    Sun Jan 7, 04:20 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles rushed for 88 yards on 10 carries against the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 7. He also went 12-for-23 for 87 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Footballguys view: It was a windy day in Jacksonville, and Bortles did not look good even on simple throws. However, his game seemed to settle down once he started running. They'll need a better performance from Bortles if they get into an offensive shootout against the Steelers in the Divisional Round.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles fully practices    Thu Jan 4, 03:45 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: Naturally there are very few options at quarterback during Wild Card weekend, but Bortles still wouldn't be our first choice. He might get some garbage yards late, but the Jaguars are likely to keep things conservative and have the offense revolve around Leonard Fournette and the ground game.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are at home on Sunday to take on the Bills in the Wild Card Round. If everything goes according to plan, they should run the ball early and often to beat the Bills. That will limit the reps for Bortles and the passing attack.

Footballguys view: Word is the Jaguars are not going to rest starters in Week 17 even though they're locked into the 3rd seed in the AFC. We should see plenty of Bortles in Week 17.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: Bortles has been on fire the last portion of this season, despite the three picks last week. We think he should be productive against Tennessee but it's not an important game for Jacksonville and he may not stay in the game. That keeps him as a nice QB2 play, but limits his upside.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has thrown just eight interceptions so far this year after throwing at least 16 of said interceptions in each of his first three seasons.

Footballguys view: Maybe Blake Bortles isn't the future in Jacksonville and maybe his numbers are coming against inferior defenses, but he's putting numbers up and faces a shaky San Francisco defense this week, making him a borderline QB1/QB2 option.
