Former Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles is set to visit the Rams just days after his release from Jacksonville, according to NFL Network, which cited an unidentified team source.
Bortles, a former first-round pick, would serve as a backup to Los Angeles starter Jared Goff if the two sides were to reach a deal.
Goff helped lead the Rams to the Super Bowl last season after posting a 13-3 record, while Bortles struggled in his fifth season with the Jaguars en route to a 5-11 season.
Bortles’ release on Wednesday came after he was benched twice for Cody Kessler last season and after the Jaguars signed former Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles to a four-year deal.
Bortles, 26, went 24-49 as a starter in Jacksonville after he was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft. He finished 2018 with 2,718 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
