Former Rams and Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is reportedly headed to Green Bay.
The Packers are giving Bortles a one-year deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
During his time with the Rams, Bortles played in an offense that is similar to the one the Packers run. He also previously played for current Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett when he was with the Jaguars.
The team’s in-person workouts are scheduled to begin Monday, and 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love is the only quarterback expected to take part.
Adding Bortles to the roster provides veteran QB experience now that longtime backup QB Tim Boyle signed with the Lions in the offseason.
There is still uncertainty regarding quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is reportedly unhappy, and contract negotiations have dragged on. KOA NewsRadio’s Benjamin Allbright reports that the addition of Bortles to the QB room has nothing to do with any Rodgers moves, though.
