That means the time has nearly come for the Jags to either release the veteran as reports have stated to save $4.5 million, or designate him to a post-June release to save $9.5 million down the road.

Regardless as to when the Jags release him, many feel he’ll find a new home relatively fast, but Bleacher Report’s Brad Gagnon believes he’ll land with a conference rival who many Jags fans may be upset with. In his bold predictions article for the free agency period of 2019, Gagnon predicted Bortles would land with the Pittsburgh Steelers to potentially be the heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger]]>

Unfortunately, only one year removed from extending Blake Bortles’ contract, the Jags will be moving on and have once again found themselves on the quarterback market. Simply put, injuries occurred on the offense and Bortles never elevated his play to the level most had hoped for, which resulted in head coach Doug Marrone giving Cody Kessler a brief shot as the No. 1 quarterback. Of course, that proved to be just as ineffective and resulted in the team turning back to Bortles mid-way through Week 16’s game against the Miami Dolphins. Afterward, he was also given the nod to start in the Jags’ season finale against the Houston Texans, which ended in a 20-3 loss]]>
