The Jaguars Will Reportedly Name Blake Bortles The Starter For Their Season Opener

Blake Bortles has reportedly done enough to keep his job as the starting quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Blake Bortles had a terrible preseason, and for the past few weeks, many have speculated that he was in danger of losing his job as the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars after the emergence of veteran Chad Henne.

Apparently, it isn't happening.

Mark Long of the AP is reporting on Saturday morning that Bortles will be the team's starting signal-caller when they take on the Houston Texans in two weeks.

Bortles had a decent season a year ago - throwing for 3,905 yards with 23 touchdowns and 16 interceptions, though he was criticized for putting up solid stats in "garbage time." We'll see if he can hold onto his job moving forward.
