Jaguars quarterback and University of Central Florida football alumnus Blake Bortles is expected to be released from Jacksonville following the season’s end, NFL Network reported Friday afternoon.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the split and how Jacksonville might be on the hook for $16 million owed to Bortles if they follow through with the change.

Bortles led the Jags to not only their first post-season berth in 10 years in 2017 but also a victory over Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Divisional. Jacksonville led and matched Roethlisberger’s touchdown drives to secure a 45-42 win in Pittsburgh, securing a spot at the AFC Championship against New England, where they would fall short of their Super Bowl dreams.
Bortles also led the Knights to their first New Years Six bowl game in the 2013 season with a victory over Baylor in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, a season hailed as one of UCF’s best.
This is a breaking story. Stay tuned for updates.
