The Denver Broncos announced Thursday that they’ve officially signed QB Blake Bortles to a contract and added DL Deyon Sizer to their practice squad, per Mike Klis

Here’s the Broncos updated practice squad:

  2. RB LeVante Bellamy

Bortles spent last season as a backup with the Rams and will fill a similar role in Denver, who just lost starting QB Drew Lock to a shoulder injury for a few weeks. 

Bortles, 28, was taken with the No. 3 overall pick by the Jaguars back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $20,654,796 rookie contract when the Jaguars picked up his fifth-year option.

Jacksonville elected to sign Bortles to a three-year, $54 million contract that included $26.5 million guaranteed. However, they cut him loose last year after signing Nick Foles to a contract.

Bortles caught on with the Rams on a one-year, $1 million deal for the 2019 season. 

In 2019, Bortles appeared in three games for the Rams and completed one of his two passing attempts for three yards.

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
