2. He’s relatively affordable
This summer, Blake Bortles was given a 3-year $54 million extension which I reckon sounds like way too much money but that’s only $18 milly a year which ranks him 17th among quarterbacks. He makes the same amount as Case Keenum and I’d say they are about the same. In fact, they both have 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions on the year. He is probably paid.
Did you see how much money Kirk Cousins and Jimmy Garoppolo earned and neither of them have ever won a single playoff game. Bortles at least went to the AFC Championship Game last season.
sidenote: it is laughable that Tom Brady makes $15 million. Bill Belichick gets home after practice and just stuffs his Tom Brady voodoo doll full of needles to keep Brady under his thumb.
