Blake Bortles has solid game in preseason opener

The Jacksonville Jaguars may want to rethink their plans.

All offseason, the organization made it apparent that Chad Henne would be the 2014 starter, with first-round pick and third-overall selection Blake Bortles serving in a backup role as a rookie. After Friday's preseason game, coach Gus Bradley may want to discuss things over with his staff.

Bortles finished Friday's game 7-11 for 117 yards in Jacksonville's 16-10 win over Tampa Bay. Bortles looked the part of a prototypical NFL passer, with his top highlight being a 31-yard pass to receiver Mike Brown.

Conversely, Henne struggled, going 4-7 for 30 yards. Two of his passes were nearly picked early in the first quarter as the veteran seemed a tad shaky.

It's just a preseason game and Bortles was going against the Bucs' second team. But after that kind of performance, Bradley and the Jags' coaches should at least reevaluate the initial plan.
