Jaguars sign Blake Bortles to 3-year, $54M contract

Bortles reportedly is finalizing a multi-year extension with the Jaguars that will keep him in Jacksonville for the next three seasons, according to multiple reports.

Coughlin's comments only further emphasize that the Jaguars expect much more success beyond what the team accomplished this past season with their first AFC Championship game appearance since 1999.

The extension means that the Jaguars will not be pursuing Kirk Cousins or any other starting QB in free agency, nor will they try to work a trade with the New York Giants for Eli Manning.

The Jaguars had a $19 million option for 2018 on Bortles that had to be picked up by March 14.

Blake Bortles of the Jaguars warms up prior to a game against the Seahawks at EverBank Field on December 10, 2017, in Jacksonville, Fla.

Bortles will now be under contract through the 2020 season.


They know a lot more about football than you and me and every guy on the Internet screaming at their computer that Bortles isn't worth the risk.

Bortles responded by putting together his best year as a pro.

But here's the great part: The Jags have him for three more years, and only $26.5 million is guaranteed. But they aren't committed to him beyond the next few seasons. "Either way, however this went, I don't think it would have had a ton of effect on how I feel". "Blake has proven, with toughness and dependability, that he can be the leader this team needs going forward". It's a dream come true to be able to sign a second contract by the team that drafted me. Despite that, Bortles is younger than Keenum and has been productive more than just one season in the National Football League, despite his inconsistencies.

In leading the Jaguars within one win of advancing to the Super Bowl, Bortles connected on 60.2 percent of his passes for 3,687 yards and 21 touchdowns with 13 interceptions during the regular season.

The ever important guaranteed money is set at $26.5 million.
