The Jaguars are making major changes to their offense after losing seven straight games and falling to 3-8 on the season. The team made the decision to part ways with offensive coordinator Nathanial Hackett and that was just the start.
The team has announced their decision to bench Blake Bortles going forward in favor of backup quarterback Cody Kessler.
Bortles' benching may be the turning point in his career, as he has underwhelmed since joining the league in 2015.
Bortles had thrown 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions through the first 11 games of the season and the Jaguars offensive production was lackluster.
It's hard to imagine him earning another starting gig, so unless he can somehow win back the Jaguars starting role, his career may be coming to an end very soon.
In his career, Bortles has a sub-60 percent completion rate and has thrown 103 touchdowns to 74 interceptions. While he's capable of having huge performances every now and then, his overall inconsistency has plagued Jacksonville for years now and the team has decided to go in a different direction.
I can’t wait for the day Blake Bortles gets released and Jalen Ramsey says what he thinks of him— Adam Stites (@AdamStites_) November 25, 2018
The former UCF Knight will be demoted to clipboard duty for at least the time being, but given his resume, it'd be a surprise if he starts another game in the league, barring an injury.
