Blake Bortles is signing his rookie deal today


With all the drama sapped from the process of signing draft picks, the news of a first-round quarterback signing barely registers.

But the last one is inking his deal today.

According to John Oehser of the team’s official website, Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is signing his contract today.

While he didn’t get nearly the kind of attention of class-mate Johnny Manziel, the Jaguars quietly zeroed in on the Central Florida quarterback from the start.

While he has the prototype size and arm, he’s still learning, and the Jaguars have insulated him with veteran Chad Henne, who can be serviceable for a moment.
