Despite speculation the Jacksonville Jaguars might make a change at quarterback this offseason, the signed incumbent Blake Bortles to a contract extension that will last through 2020.
Bortles was going into the last year of his contract and due $19 million in 2018. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed, but in all likelihood it will guarantee Bortles more money over the time of the deal while lowering his cap hit this season.
The third overall pick of the 2014 draft, Bortles struggled early in his career, but had his best season in 2017. He finished 15th in DYAR and 16th in DVOA, his first year in the top 20 in either category. And the Jaguars won ten games in the regular season and two more in the playoffs.
