What is the significance of the Jaguars picking up the fifth-year option on the contract of Blake Bortles?
1. Nothing. It was just a business move. It's not like it is guaranteed money.
2. Bortles is a stop-gap. They will draft a rookie next Spring and have Bortles as insurance while he develops. He will be the next Chad Henne and the cycle will continue.
3. Coughlin hates Doug Marrone. The only other explanation is that Coughlin is bored winning Super Bowls and is handicapping himself for a bigger challenge.
4. Bortles is the answer. He had a down year dragging the corpse of Gus Bradley up and down the field for 60 minutes every week. Now the sky is the limit.
