Blake Bortles isn’t quite ready to focus on his future with the franchise.For now , the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback is trying to be supportive teammate.Bortles will start a regular-season game on the bench for the first time since Sept. 14, 2014, serving as Cody Kessler‘s backup against Indianapolis (6-5) on Sunday.“I put myself in this position and didn’t play good enough,” Bortles said Wednesday, two days after getting demoted. “Didn’t win football games, couldn’t find a way to get it done. And when that happens, it’s a business and everybody understands that. I don’t there’s anything personal involved. As a quarterback, I you have one job and that’s to win a football game, and if you don’t do that, your time’s probably limited.”Bortles sounded like someone who knows his time with Jacksonville is nearing the end.Bortles signed a three-year, $54 million contract in February and will count $21 million against the salary cap in 2019. If the Jags cut him before June 1 Logan Cooke Color Rush Jersey , they would still take a $16.5 million hit against the cap.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJets’ Darnold throws 3 more picks in 29-15 loss at JaguarsRams get CB Jalen Ramsey from Jaguars for 3 draft picksBridgewater now 4-0 as starter after Saints top Jaguars 13-6Jaguars once elite defense struggles as Gardner Minshew, DJ Chark build chemistryLeonard Fournette runs for career-high as Jaguars mount comeback to beat BroncosThe fifth-year pro and third overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft seemed resigned to — at the very least — having to compete for the starting job next year.“Yeah, I have no problem with competition or anything,” he said. “I’m not in charge of the decisions that are made. I obviously put myself in this position and forced their decision to be made, but at the end of the day, they’re in charge of making those personnel decisions. And if it’s a competition or if it’s, ‘See you later; you’re out of here,’ whatever it is, I love playing football and would love the opportunity to play again.”Coach Doug Marrone benched Bortles and fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett on the same day. He promoted Kessler and will have quarterbacks coach Scott Milanovich call plays.“It’s always going to be a difference,” Marrone said. “Obviously, we have the same system. We aren’t going to be changing the terminology in a week. Cody played in this system and now he gets a full week of (practicing). I that Scott knows what Cody can do obviously; he was his position coach. We’ll see when we get out there and see things during the week of what we’re going to be able to use.”Kessler hasn’t taken many first-team reps since training camp Andrew Norwell Jersey , so he needs to develop some chemistry with his offensive linemen and receiving corps.He also won’t have running back Leonard Fournette (suspension) or three starting offensive linemen: left tackle Cam Robinson, left guard Andrew Norwell and center Brandon Linder. All three are on injured reserve.“There is a reason that every single player is here,” Kessler said. “You obviously want to have every guy out there that you can, but when you can’t, it is the same thing. Next man up, and we have guys that are going to be ready. And whoever is out there, everyone is competing and everyone is given an opportunity. I am excited. Everyone is here for a reason, and we are going to be ready to go.”Bortles took the benching in stride, saying and doing all the right things in his reduced role. He said he learned from longtime Jaguars backup Chad Henne how to handle getting benched and being a career backup.“One thing I’ve always said that I thought was one of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen is how Chad handled going from being the starter to the backup and how he was able to maturely handle that and be there for me and do whatever I needed or help me out in any way,” Bortles said. “Anytime I’ve ever been in that situation, that’s all I’ll try and do is kind of what he did and what I witnessed him do.“It’s be a professional and handle it the way you should. It’s a job , and our job is to be here and try to win football games, and as a backup quarterback or any quarterback that’s not the starter you job is to help the starter and help the rest of the offense score points and win.” The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed running back Thomas Rawls, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.Depth was a big issue at running back for the Jaguars in the 2018 season and with the way things were trending, would be an even bigger problem in 2019. There is some thought that the Jaguars could move on from both Leonard Fournette and Carlos Hyde this offseason and signing someone like Rawls won’t stop that thought.Originally signing with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2015, he had a successful rookie season with over 800 rushing yards, averaging over five yards per carry. His rookie season ended with a broken ankle and his 2016 season was derailed by a broken fibula, but did have a monster game in the playoffs against the Detroit Lions.His 2017 season regressed again and didn’t do much with the New York Jets in 2018.The signing makes sense from a depth perspective and someone who has at least shown to be productive in spurts. It also makes sense if the Jaguars are considering hiring Darrell Bevell as their offensive coordinator, as Rawls spent a few seasons in his offense.
