Summary

Bortles played in all 16 games in 2016 but he was dealing with several minor injuries as he suffered a Grade 1 sprained right AC joint halfway through the season, and aggravated it five weeks later, and was also dealing with tendinitis in his right wrist. On May 1, 2017 the Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option on Bortles which will now guarantee him a $20 million salary in 2018. He has the support of the new executive vice president of football operations, Tom Coughlin who said "It makes sense for us going forward and it's good for Blake and for the Jaguars." Bortles has work to do this offseason and will have to prove it on the field in 2017, he has plenty of weapons around him with Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee in the receiving game and the pick 1st Round draft pick in Leonard Fournette who will try to balance out the offense with his dynamic running ability. Bortles offers a bonus to his fantasy production with his rushing ability which has allowed him to run for 669 yards and 5 touchdowns over the past two seasons. (May 22)

Jaguars | Blake Bortles' mechanics 'improved' (Sat May 13, 01:37 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone believes there is 'no doubt' the way QB Blake Bortles is throwing the ball this offseason 'has improved'.

Our View: Bortles mechanics were quite wonky last year, and it caused his play to slip. The Jaguars haven't written him off (yet), but Bortles certainly needs to start playing better if he wants to stay as the starting quarterback. He's in line for a bounce-back season in 2017.
