Blake Bortles doesn’t think he’ll be with the Jacksonville Jaguars next year.

That’s according to CBS announcers Andrew Catalon and James Lofton, who recalled a conversation they had with Bortles earlier in the week. When asked about his future with the Jaguars, the CBS announcers recalled what Bortles said.

“I don’t think I’ll be back next year,” Bortles said before the season finale on Sunday. “Being honest, I envision I’ll be somewhere else next year.”

Bortles is candid and he works hard, but he’s just not good enough. If Bortles is correct, it’ll be good that the team goes after improving the most important position on the team but I can’t lie — I’ll be (slightly) sad to see him go.
