Following an injury to young quarterback Drew Lock, the Denver Broncos are left without a viable option. In a related move, they have inked former Jaguar quarterback Blake Bortles to a one year deal.
Back-up Jeff Driskel will get the first stab at the start in the 3-5 week absence for Lock, however, Bortles had only had practice squad offers up to this point. This gives him his first real opportunity to see playing time in 2020, even if it’s at league minimum.
Bortles showed signs of promise after being a big pick for the Jaguars but could never put it together. Over his first six seasons, he’s gone 24-49 with a 59.4 completion percentage, 17649 yards and 103 touchdowns to 75 interceptions.
