"So you know, it's a different perspective", Bortles said. "We have to get ready".
The former league MVP had surgery in March to fix a partially torn rotator cuff in his right, throwing shoulder.
"I'm looking for someone that's going to lead this offense", Marrone said after the 12-8 loss, per ESPN.com's Michael DiRocco. Needless to say, he's going to have to fix these issues if he plans to be the team's long-term starter.
"I think you're getting dealt a certain hand and it's your decision and you chose to do what you want with it. That's the most important thing".
But this is one of his final chances and Bortles is at the end of the line here with the Jaguars. Though the San Francisco 49ers were on the downswing for the past few years, Kaepernick's stats were still middle-of-the-road to good, including a 90.7 quarterback rating last season and 16 touchdowns with just four interceptions last season. He also threw an interception that was returned 48 yards and set up a touchdown in the third quarter. After the game, coach Doug Marrone told the media that it was possible both quarterbacks could play in the Jags' Week 4 preseason matchup against the Atlanta Falcons and would make the decision later in the week. "I think no one really hurt themselves as far as the practice goes, which I pretty much expected". You always want to see that. "I think you can roll over and lay down or you can keep working, grinding and trying to win that spot back". So you have two options. Draft now and receive immediate cash payouts. He finished the game 6-10 with 44 yards. He was targeted a team-high six times.
Through two weeks of the National Football League preseason thus far, Bortles has done nothing to give the Jaguars coaching staff confidence that he can be the definitive starter come this season, thus the reasoning for the move on Thursday. The team opted not to sign either one, instead putting Myers on notice about his shaky job security.

Panthers: Guard Dan France left the game to be evaluated for a concussion. He led the Jaguars to a touchdown and a field goal in five possessions, and also was sacked three times.
