Blake Bortles reportedly agrees to 3-year, $54 million deal with Jaguars

Blake Bortles reportedly agrees to 3-year, $54 million deal with Jaguars

According to multiple reports, the Jaguars will sign Bortles to a contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2020 season.

Jacksonville should definitely, and most likely will still make a play in the early rounds of the draft in April for a quarterback, to groom and polish if/when Bortles' tenue with the team ends in the coming seasons. However, his future was uncertain beyond that since it represented the fifth and final year on his rookie contract.

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. He also completed more than 60 percent of his passes for the first time in his career. His career year allowed for enough optimism that the Jaguars made a decision to move forward with him as their starting quarterback in a long-term capacity. While Henne has been valuable as a mentor to Bortles, the younger quarterback has actually started more games than his incumbent No. 2.

With their quarterback situation now resolved, the Jaguars can now turn their attention toward working out a new contract with former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson, who played in just one game last season, before he hits the free agent market.
