AFC Notes: Jaguars, Ravens, Titans



  • Michael DiRocco of ESPN writes that if Jaguars QB Blake Bortles continues to struggle this season, it’s possible Jacksonville could bench him to avoid the chance of him getting hurt, which would cost them roughly $20 million for the 2018 season. From there, the Jaguars could waive Bortles next year without owing him any money.
  • DiRocco says that Bortles will need to fix his turnover issues, considering that no quarterback has turned the ball over more than him, or he’ll be playing for a new team next year.



Titans HC Mike Mularkey sounds excited about the different dimension rookie RB Khalfani Muhammad brings to their offense.

Khalfani really had a good workout when Jon and I went out there,” Mularkey said, via the Jason Wolf of Tennessean. “I mean a really good workout. And that speed, it’s just a different changeup from what we have in our other two backs. Plus again you’re talking about another guy who has return ability … so he brings a lot of value.”

Muhammad will still need to earn a roster spot this summer, but he says he’s looking forward to contributing on special teams, which could go a long way toward him making the team.

Most definitely I’m looking forward to special teams just in general,” Muhammad said. “Special teams, that’s something that impacts the game. It’s very crucial in the game, so going out there and being electrifying and making a play and sparking up the team, that’s something special and I can’t wait.”
