Former Jags QB Blake Bortles Signing a One-Year Deal with the Broncos


The Denver Broncos have been hit by the injury bug. Von Miller was lost for the season before it ever got started, Courtland Sutton tore his ACL in the team's Week 2 loss to the Steelers, and QB Drew Lock was also hurt in the loss but will only miss three to five weeks with a severe strain of the rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder.

Jeff Driskel was the only other quarterback on the roster. Until now.

The Broncos are signing former UCF and Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles to a one-year deal once he passes coronavirus testing.

Bortles had the Jags in the AFC Championship game and probably should have made it to the Super Bowl that season. Since then, Bortles went 3-9 in 2018, was cut by the Jags after the team signed Nick Foles, and threw only two passes during his one year with the L.A. Rams.

He will compete with Jeff Driskel for playing time while Lock is. out.

For his career, Blake Bortles has thrown for 17,649 yards and 103 touchdowns along with eight rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown in six years in the NFL.
