Jaguars signing Blake Bortles to 3-year, $54 million extension, report says

Jaguars finalizing 3-year contract extension with Blake Bortles

One of the biggest offseason questions now has an answer. The team is signing quarterback Blake Bortles to a contract extension for three years, covering the fifth year option season and two additional years.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the $54 million deal is through 2020, and it's worth up to $66.5 million in incentives and $26.5 million is guaranteed.

The contract also lowers Bortles 2018 salary cap hit by more than a million bucks.

The Jaguars had picked up their option for the 2018 season on Bortles' rookie contract past year.

Don't expect the Jaguars to move on from Bortles unless they can guarantee an upgrade at quarterback.

I also thought Bortles would be better off resuming his career on another team.

Trump upbeat on meeting with Australian PM
The leaders spoke in the Oval Office during a portion of the meeting that was open to US and Australian journalists. Trump and first lady Melania Trump greeted Turnbull Friday at the south entrance of the White House.

"Signing this second deal with the team that drafted me was my goal from the beginning". The deal includes $26.5M guaranteed.

If anything, this new extension demonstrates the strong amount of belief that the franchise has in Bortles that he can be the solution under center and can help bring them their first Super Bowl win. "Either way, however this went, I don't think it would have had a ton of effect on how I feel".

"I've been around Blake for the past three seasons, only one as the head coach, but I have seen him grow considerably in all facets: the way he prepares, the way he takes care of his body, the way he leads the team, the way he holds himself and his teammates accountable", Marrone said.

For his career, Bortles has thrown for 14,928 yards and completed 59.1 percent of his passes with 90 touchdowns and 64 interceptions.

"Blake's growth and development last season was a key to the success we had as a team", Jaguars executive vice-president of football operations Tom Coughlin said. The fewer teams in need of a quarterback gives the Vikings a better chance of the team bringing back Keenum and/or Bridgewater, or going outside of the box and signing someone like Kirk Cousins.

Bortles will be just 26 when the next season starts and he already has 61 National Football League starts and 90 touchdown passes under his belt.
