    Rams' Blake Bortles: Seems minimal time in 2019

    Blake Bortles completed one of two passes for three yards and rushed twice for minus-9 yards while appearing in three games during the 2019 season.The 27-year-old signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams in the spring knowing that he would be in line for a backup job behind Jared Goff, and Bortles stayed in that role all season since Goff didn't miss a game. Bortles is set to hit free agency again in March and essentially finds himself in the same position as he was after being let go by the Jaguars last year. He shouldn't have a problem securing a contract for the 2020 campaign, but he's unlikely to be viewed as much more than a high-end backup.

    Rams' Blake Bortles: Tosses two passes in blowout win

    Blake Bortles completed one of his two pass attempts for three yards during Sunday's 34-7 win over Arizona. He played seven snaps in relief of starting quarterback Jared Goff once the game was out of reach for the Cardinals.While this was the third time Bortles has seen the field this season, Sunday's two throws were his first of the campaign. He's locked into a backup role, and as long as Goff is healthy, Bortles is nothing more than a speculative stash in two-quarterback settings.

    Rams' Blake Bortles: Stagnant outing against Oakland

    Blake Bortles completed three of eight pass attempts for 50 yards, adding one rush for three yards during Saturday's 14-3 loss to the Raiders.Bortles led the Los Angeles Rams offense to only three first downs on his two offensive drives, continuing a dreadful streak of play that goes back to 2018. He completed 53.6 percent of his passes and averaged 112.7 passing yards per game over his final three starts as a Jaguar, and now has his career in Los Angeles off to a precarious start. Given his starting experience, durability and pockets of proficient play throughout five pro seasons, Bortles stands as one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL, but Los Angeles will have to live with occasionally static offensive production, as well as a high volume of turnovers should the 27-year-old signal-caller ever be forced into action.

    Rams' Blake Bortles: Gets $1 million on new deal

    Blake Bortles finalized a one-year, $1 million contract with the Los Angeles Rams on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.The Rams get a nice bargain with their backup quarterback, as any money Bortles receives on the new contract simply reduces the $6.5 million he's guaranteed from the Jaguars. He should be a big upgrade on the Rams' backup from the past two season (Sean Mannion) and isn't likely to face any serious competition for the No. 2 job this summer. Given the wealth of talent in the Los Angeles offense, Bortles could warrant fantasy consideration if starter Jared Goff misses time with an injury during the 2019 campaign.

    Rams' Blake Bortles: Finds home with Rams

    The Los Angeles Rams and Blake Bortles are close to an agreement on a one-year contract, Jeff Darlington of ESPN reports.With legitimate starting quarterback gigs few and far between throughout the league, Bortles will land one of the top available backup jobs. Working with coach Sean McVay and behind Jared Goff could do wonders for the five-year pro, who owns a 103:75 TD:INT in 75 career appearances.

    Blake Bortles: Will visit with Rams

    Blake Bortles is set to visit with the Rams on Monday, Michael Silver of Sports Illustrated reports.This likely begins the transition for Bortles from a starter to a backup role since Jared Goff will continue to lead to Rams for the foreseeable future. Although Bortles struggled as a starter with Jacksonville, he'd be a quality backup, as he completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,718 yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 2018.

    Blake Bortles: Jettisoned from Jacksonville

    The Jaguars released Blake Bortles on Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.After the Eagles opted not to retain Nick Foles via the franchise tag, he was quickly linked to the Jaguars, who ultimately agreed with him on a four-year, $88 million contract in the opening hours of the legal tampering period Monday. With Foles officially in the fold, Bortles is the clear casualty, despite having $6.5 million guaranteed on his own contract. Bortles may have to settle for a backup job with his next organization, but no matter if he holds a clipboard or takes the field, his days of relevance may be few and far between in the future.

    Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Likely to be released

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to release Blake Bortles despite owing him $6.5 million in guaranteed 2019 base salary, ESPN.com's Dan Graziano reports.Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell recently said Bortles is "still in the mix" at quarterback, but the 26-year-old likely will be cut once the team is confident in finding a replacement (read: Nick Foles). Jacksonville can free up $9.5 million in cap space if Bortles is designated as a post-June 1 release, spreading out the dead cap hit ($16.5 million) between 2019 and 2020. When all is said and done, the team likely will have paid him $26.5 million to play one season beyond his rookie contract -- an extra $6.5 million compared to if they'd simply let him play out his fifth-year option instead of offering an extension. Assuming the Jaguars find their replacement, Bortles may have to settle for high-end backup money on the open market this spring.

    Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Still in mix for Jags

    General manager Dave Caldwell said Blake Bortles is still in the mix at quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.The Jaguars surely regret signing Bortles to a three-year, $54 million contract last offseason, especially given that the deal guarantees nearly half of his $14 million base salary for 2019, per overthecap.com. The team can still free up $9.5 million in cap space if the 27-year-old quarterback is designated as a post-June 1 release, so the structure of the contract won't necessarily keep him on the roster for 2019. Even if Bortles sticks around, the Jaguars figure to invest significant resources -- be it money or an early draft pick -- in the search for an upgrade at quarterback.

    Jaguars' Blake Bortles: Ends season on low note

    Blake Bortles completed 15 of 28 passes for 107 yards and an interception and added 15 yards on seven carries during Sunday's 20-3 loss to Houston.If this was Bortles' last start for Jacksonville, he certainly made it easy for fans to let him go. The fifth-year passer meandered for most of the game before launching an ugly desperation pick into the end zone in the game's closing minutes with the Jacksonville Jaguars down by three scores. Bortles hasn't topped 130 passing yards in a game since Week 10 and has spent about half of that time benched. He might not get the opportunity to throw a pass for the Jaguars again.
