Blake Bortles Benched: Will Jaguars QB Be With Team in 2019?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been unable to parlay an impressive 2017 season complete with a playoff run into success this year.

In turn, multiple changes were made across the roster and coaching staff, including the call to demote quarterback Blake Bortles.

This move was made prior to the team’s Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts and the starting job was given to Cody Kessler.

Specifically, Leonard Fournette has been the team’s focal point over the last two seasons, but an injury sidelined him throughout the start of the year.

The 26-year-old quarterback was on pace for the fewest touchdown passes since his rookie season and had thrown 10 interceptions through less than 11 full games.

The decision for the team to give the inconsistent quarterback a three-year, $54 million contract extension was head-scratching at the time, but it leaves them in a tough spot now.
