The Jacksonville Jaguars have recently released quarterback Blake Bortles after hitting quarterback Nick Foles as a freelancer. Well, Bortles has now signed with the Los Angeles Rams to be Jared Goff's replacement. However, it seems that the Broncos were interested in the fact that Bortles was the substitute quarterback of Joe Flacco.
According to Mike Klis of 9NEWS Denver, the Broncos showed a preliminary interest for Bortles after his release by the Jaguars, but nothing materialized. Klis also notes that the interest was mutual, but it is obvious that nothing has happened. MIke Silver from the NFL network has confirmed this report.
So if this deal came to fruition and the Broncos signed Blake Bortles, they would have Joe Flacco and Blake Bortles on the same list.
John Elway would roast on Twitter and MHR would have been a mess. Could you imagine? Thank God we avoided that.
This never-before-seen signing gives you insight into the Broncos reflections on the quarter-finals in the 2019 NFL draft. You're not looking to hire a former first-round quarterback with years of experience in as a substitute, if you're completely crazy, say Drew Lock or Dwayne Haskins.
We do not know what the level of interest was, but it's not a good sign if you want a fourth in 10th place. This obviously has not happened and a quarterback is still in play in the 10th place overall, but there are still some doubts after this information, at least in my opinion.
Let's just be grateful to have the quarterback duo of Joe Flacco and Blake Bortles on our team.
How bad would you have been if the Broncos had signed Blake Bortles
Level 10 on the pissing scale
Only slightly edgy
Not really pissed off
Bourré? I would have loved it!
