The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed quarterback Blake Bortles to a contract extension through the 2020 season, according to a report from the Florida Times-Union.
Jaguars are giving QB Blake Bortles a new three-year, $54 million deal, worth up to $66.5M with incentives, that includes $26.5M guaranteed, tying him to Jacksonville through the 2020 season, per source.
Jacksonville out of QB market.

Bortles, 26, was likely going to play under a fifth-year option in 2018 that guaranteed $19M. His new contract voids that option.
The extension likely means that Jacksonville is out of the running for a free agent quarterback.
Jacksonville finished the 2017 season with an 11-5 record before losing to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship.
