NFL Notes: Jaguars Open Up QB Competition After Blake Bortles' Struggles
Word around Jacksonville is that it may be moving on from Bortles as the starting quarterback, which has to breathe life into this entire team from a confidence standpoint.
The good news for Bortles is that head coach Doug Marrone did announce that Bortles will get some first team reps despite not starting the game, so not all is lost for the former UCF quarterback.
In his first live action since last year's season finale, Newton completed both of his passes for 21 yards and a touchdown at Jacksonville on Thursday night. In five possessions Bortles completed 12-of-16 passes for 125 yards and directed two touchdown drives.
Check out the touchdown and the interception below! I'm going to take a real hard look at it and see where we're at. He arrived at training camp hoping to turn his career around, but raised eyebrows with a string of interceptions in practice and missed throws in preseason games. "Whatever you want to call it, I'm still trying to evaluate who the best person is at that position". Bortles is bad, but he's not any worse than he was in March when free agency started or in April during the draft. "I think there's just one out there where maybe I just probably throw the ball away". "I think everything is on the table".
"I always watch how players respond", Marrone said.
"I knew I was going to get an opportunity to come play Thursday night and that was where I would have a chance to show what I've been doing and what I can do", said Bortles following Thursday's game against Carolina.
Most of the Jaguars' players say they are comfortable with either Henne or Bortles as the starter for the regular season.
Marrone said he named Henne because he'd never seen him start a game before. "Yeah, he had flaws here and there, but at the end of the day I feel like he can go out there and make it happen". There are some other quarterbacks around the league or in free agency that the Jaguars could look into acquiring, but so far no initial inquiries have been made public.
