Bye, bye Bortles? Jaguars open up quarterback competition

Coach Doug Marrone opened up the team’s quarterback competition Thursday night after another inconsistent performance from Bortles, the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

He misfired to Allen Robinson twice Thursday, including a woefully underthrown pass down the seam that drew boos from the home crowd and caused some head-shaking on the sideline.

After all, Marrone and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett watched Bortles up close the last two years and knew all his flaws.

Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell even picked up the fifth-year option in Bortles’ rookie contract, which would pay him $19 million in 2018.

The deal is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the team can part ways with Bortles and not owe him anything beyond this season.
