No matter how you slice it, Blake Bortles led the Jacksonville Jaguars to the AFC Championship Game. Sure, the Sacksonville defense was stifling all season, and a lot of the offensive output came from the legs of Leonard Fournette, but Bortles was the best darn game manager since Alex Smith. So it may only have been a mild surprise for some when the Jaguars inked a contract extension with their quarterbacknb游戏平台 on Sunday.
With details emerging from the contract just two days after solidifying three important front office positions, the smart money appears to be firmly in place with this low-risk deal, . Jacksonville is only on the hook for about $6.5 million more over three years than it was for just the 2018 season. With Jimmy Garoppolo signing the largest contract in the league and the QB roulette wheel expected to land on Kirk Cousins soon, the Jaguars are looking like a band of pirates that avoided the Siren’s call. Rather than breaking the treasure chest open in free agency, . Who’s to say that anyway?
The winners of the AFC South can now focus on bringing back Bortles' favorite target and securing more talent in the draft. It’s hard not to forget that Blake was sharing preseason snaps with Chad Henne just six months ago, but this is a team and fan base that rallied around him before. When Jadeveon Clowney called him trash, Blake Bortles responded with 326 yards and three touchdowns against Houston, and the fan base trolled Clowney by sending trash cans. In advance of Jacksonville’s first playoff game since 2007, teammates once again came to the defense of their much-criticized quarterback. With a new contract and that kind of support, the Jags are hoping that Blake Bortles can rise above the noise and lead his team to the AFC Championship Game again — and perhaps the Super Bowl victory that has eluded the Jags in their relatively brief existence.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. In 2015, Blake Bortles joined an elite list of NFL quarterbacks by passing for over 4,000 yards and 35 touchdowns in a season, something that has only been done 30 times in NFL history. With that in mind, how many of these QBs can you name in five minutes?
