I would pay Thill17. Bortles is waste of your time and mind. .you cant get mad at N.E. When they win almost every yr.
Again, if the goal is <4 wins, why even waste money on a FA? Roll with what's on the roster. To me, signing a FA QB means, at least, some indication a true tank isn't in the cards.I believe the Jags will go all in for Foles .This would be the end for Bortles in Jacksonville. RT being cut or traded opening up the door for Bortles.He is another low end starting QB and will have to except he is not getting another big paycheck.
Man every team aims for a quarterback that does all those things ,does not mean it's gonna happen, honestly how much longer do people think it's gonna take before we get our next franchise QB ? It's been almost 20 years since we've had one when several franchises transitioned from having oneI don't see it.
Coach Flores is in the process of implementing a very QB-driven offense that requires a hyper-accurate guy with precision timing and phenomenal pre-snap read mastery. None of those things even remotely suggest Bortles. At his best he's a strong armed kid who has some mobility and can take a hit and stand tall in the pocket. And that "best" isn't seen very often! He consistently failed with a far better OL than we have, a dominant run game, and a great defense. In no world do I see Coach Flores investing any money into Bortles, and as a veteran QB, he's not coming cheap, and he's not coming for only 1 year.
While I dislike the idea of him in a Dolphins uniform, I'm simply not worried it will happen. It doesn't make sense knowing Coach Flores' preferred offensive system.
Agreed, Tannehill never got benched in his 7 years.Bortles is going to struggle to find any work, even as a back up IMO.
It's sad that some people think Bortles and Tannehill are somehow in the same league.
