Blake Bortles to Sign with Green Bay Packers
The Packers are bulking up their quarterback room with rumors that Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay.
The franchise is expected to sign former Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles to a one-year deal, according to ESPN.

Bortles, the No. 3 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, has bounced around the league since departing Duval. He played for the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams last season.
Bortles will be expected to compete with Tim Boyle and last year's first-round selection Jordan Love for a roster spot, unless Rodgers retires or is traded, which could open up the backup QB position in Green Bay.
The cult hero should have plenty of supporters — including Jason Mendoza from "The Good Place."
