Jaguars QB Blake Bortles agrees to three-year deal

The Jacksonville Jaguars and quarterback Blake Bortles agreed on a three-year contract through the 2020 campaign on Saturday, according to multiple reports.

The deal is worth up to $66.5 million with incentives, including $26.5 million guaranteed, according to ESPN.

The Jaguars had a $19 million option for 2018 on Bortles that had to be picked up by March 14.

Bortles helped Jacksonville reach the AFC Championship game this season before the club lost to the New England Patriots.

Bortles has a 21-40 regular-season record as a starter with nearly half the victories occurring in 2017 as the Jaguars went 10-6 and won the AFC South.
