The Rams are without Jared Goff in Sunday’s big game against the Cardinals, but they’re bringing back an old friend who can play quarterback. Blake Bortles, who spent last year with the Rams, has re-signed with the team today. Bortles had most recently been on the Broncos’ practice squad.
Bortles last started an NFL game in 2018, when he was with the Jaguars. Bortles’ five-year tenure in Jacksonville had some bright spots but was mostly a failure. Still, with Goff out with a broken thumb, Bortles is the Rams’ only experienced quarterback, with John Wolford starting and Bryce Perkins backing him up.
Rams’ QB John Wolford is expected to start on Sunday vs. Arizona and LA now plans to sign Blake Bortles off Denver’s practice squad to be his backup.
