Blake Bortles contract details prove Jaguars made incredibly smart decision

Blake Bortles contract details prove Jaguars made incredibly smart decision

The Jaguars (10-6) won the AFC South for the first time in team history and made the playoffs for the first time in a decade.

A day after faith was placed in the front office and head coach with contract extensions, Jacksonville is also placing belief in Bortles after a trip to the AFC championship game past year. The extension came together in less than a week.

Jacksonville had picked up Bortles' fifth-year option worth $19 million in 2017, which would have been the 25-year-old's salary in 2018 had they not come to an agreement on a deal.

The Jacksonville Jaguars apparently are sticking with Blake Bortles as their quarterback of the immediate future.

I also thought Bortles would be better off resuming his career on another team. "I think signing the second deal with the team that drafted you was my goal from the beginning".

No word yet on whether or not Pitino will be removing his now-famous tattoo following Tuesday's ruling. Individual records of student-athletes will also be vacated.


"Everybody dreams of making $100 million and the quarterbacks are expected to sign that big deal", Bortles added.

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. "So that'll take place for the next two weeks, and ideally I'll be cleared and back to just my normal throwing program four days a week trying to get everything tuned up and ready to go for OTAs".

"Blake's growth and development last season was a key to the success we had as a team", said Tom Coughlin, the Jaguars' executive vice president of football operations. He completed a career-high 60 percent of his passes for 3,687 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. But rather than reel in a truckload of money, the young quarterback is going to be a roaring bargain for his team, which now has more cap flexibility going forward as a result.

Will Keenum be able to get more years and guaranteed cash than Bortles? Now, he'll make $20 million guaranteed in 2018.
