Two days later and roughly 3,000 miles away, Blake Bortles seems to have found himself a suitor.
Bortles, who was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Wednesday, is scheduled to visit the Los Angeles Rams on Monday, NFL Network’s Michael Silver reported, per a team source, on Friday evening.
The former first-round pick could be a veteran backup for starter Jared Goff.
The No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Jaguars, Bortles went 24-49 as a starter in Jacksonville. He’s coming off a forgettable season in 2018 in which he was 3-9 as a first-stringer with 2,718 yards passing, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Still, he’s a quarterback with five years of starting experience who helped the Jaguars to the AFC Championship Game in 2017, which is a fine resume for any reserve QB.
So Bortles might be heading to a title contender.
