Blake Bortles on arm: 'It feels good, I'll be all right'

Blake Bortles on arm: 'It feels good, I'll be all right'

Bortles could very well be heading into his final year as a Jaguar.

Marrone added, "I just saw that his arm looked exhausted, so rather than push him knowing he was going to get all the reps that we needed for these next couple of days, I just said, 'Hey, it's my decision.' He said, 'Hey, I'm good".

"For me personally, with our football team, I think that we've got to get ready and start tightening some things down and start getting ready to get our focus more toward what the roster is going to be like and what we want to do", Marrone said.

Marrone then discussed Bortles' play since Sunday.

Marrone was asked about Bortles' downfield accuracy, which made sense because Bortles on Tuesday missed a wide-open rookie wide receiver Keelan Cole deep downfield for what would have been a touchdown. Because of this, Marrone said the team has eased back on reps for the 25-year-old. That's until we realize the Jaguars themselves have put Bortles on notice publicly. "I think when you take a step back and look at it, it still is our first camp in the system with coach (Nathaniel) Hackett and I think guys have done a good job". That was the goal was to get him out here and get him all that work.

Robinson's response seems to be part of a growing disenchantment with Bortles.

"So we rested him the other day", head coach Doug Marrone said, per DiRocco.

The 2017 season has yet to officially begin, but things aren't looking like they'll improve for Bortles in Jacksonville this year.

Tuesday was the last open-to-the-public practice for the Jaguars in '17 camp, and in a sense it defined camp thus far for Bortles. In the video, Bortles overthrows Robinson by a wide margin, leaving the latter to knock a person over on the sidelines.

But he also had good work in the red-zone, completing touchdown passes on four of five plays at one point.

Bortles has been one of the most disappointing quarterbacks in recent memory. Good and not-so-good. Up-and-down.
