As the vulnerability surrounding Aaron Rodgers carries on in Green Bay, the Packers are adding another veteran former first-round quarterback to their roster.
Quarterback Blake Bortles is in Green Bay to sign with the Packers, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero announced Wednesday.
While this may add to the worry in regards to Rodgers, who’s allegedly unhappy as contract negotiations have dragged on, it should be noticed that Packers longtime backup Tim Boyle endorsed with the Lions in the offseason.
Along these lines, with just two quarterbacks on the roster – including 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love – and Phase 2 of OTAs set to initiate Monday, the Packers needed to add a quarterback or two, Pelissero revealed.
There’s likewise an connection for Bortles as he played in a similar offense as the Packers with the Rams and recently played for current Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett with the Jaguars.
The No. 3 pick of the 2014 draft by the Jaguars, Bortles played five seasons in Duval, the greater part of them disappointing, and was released. He’s been with the Rams the previous two seasons and is presently one of three previous first-round QBs on the Packers with Love and that Rodgers fellow.
