Blake Bortles not concerned about learning new Jaguars offense

New, comments

The Jaguars young quarterback isn't as concerned about learning a new offense as a lot of the fans are.

There was a lot of belief that the Jacksonville Jaguars were not going to make a change at the offensive coordinator position this offseason because they did not want to make Blake Bortles learn an entire new offense two seasons in a row, but that concern seems to only lie with the fans.

"Football is football," Bortles told Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. "A lot of the things are the same. You just use different words. The schemes are all relatively similar, and you just have to figure out the language."

Bortles has already spoken with new offensive coordinator Greg Olson, though it didn't include any film work or anything like that, according to Blake. Bortles did mention that he did speak with a lot of the candidates that the Jaguars interviewed this offseason and that head coach Gus Bradley was very open and communicative with the whole process and let him even speak with some of the candidates while he was on Jaguars Today on 1010XL.

Olson also mentioned that his offense would be based on the strengths of Blake Bortles, which should make learning a new offense a much easier transition.
