Top Blake Bortles News

  • Blake Bortles: Set to be released

    The Saints will release Bortles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    This is an outcome that was foreshadowed by the team's signing of Andy Dalton to back up Jameis Winston, who is bouncing back from a knee injury. Additionally, the Saints roster Ian Book, a 2021 fourth-rounder. Bortles -- who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft -- will now look to catch on with another team, presumably one seeking to bolster its No. 2 QB situation.
