After being unceremoniously dumped by the Jaguars, a year after reading them to the AFC Championship Game, Blake Bortles finds himself in a rather comfortable position. Playing backup to Jared Goff for potential Super Bowl contenders the Rams is probably the confidence boost he needs after a terrible 2018. Although his stats were not great, the blame for the great 2018 collapse can’t be laid fully at his feet. His completion record at 60.3% was a career-high, and don’t forget that the Jags started 3-1, including a win over Super Bowl champions New England in which Bortles outperformed Tom Brady by some distance.
Anyway he has got a nice one-year deal which will allow him to regroup, and we are sure that Sean McVay didn’t sign him unless he saw something. After all, Bortles is only 27 years old, and has been quite durable during his career to date. His days as an NFL starter are probably over, however he can still make a good living as a journeyman backup, and who knows he may still pick up a Super Bowl ring if the Rams can go one better this year
