Blake Bortles throws five interceptions in rough first practice with pads -
Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles turned in one of the worst practices of his career Saturday night by throwing five interceptions, including two to a player who last played in an NFL game in 2015. Bortles threw two interceptions in 7-on-7 drills and three in 11-on-11, one of which linebacker Telvin Smith returned for a touchdown. Cornerback Tyler Patmon, who spent time with the Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs and Carolina Panthers last season after playing in two games with the Miami Dolphins in 2015, intercepted Bortles twice in 11-on-11 play. Linebacker Josh McNary (7-on-7) and safety Tashaun Gipson (11-on-11) also had interceptions.

Blake Bortles and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Jaguars day -
The Jacksonville Jaguars had their first full padded practice on Saturday evening in front of just over 4,000 season ticket holders. Thankfully for the Jaguars, the customers in attendance had already paid for their season tickets, else they might have had a hard time selling to the fans who witnessed the horrible day from starting quarterback Blake Bortles.

It was an odd night for former third overall picks during the Jaguars' first padded training camp practice Saturday. The 2014 third overall pick, quarterback Blake Bortles, threw five interceptions during team drills. “I think any time someone doesn’t perform to what you want to do you’re concerned about it," Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said after practice.
