Rooney on team's run defense: 'That's not Steeler football'

  Rooney on team's run defense: 'That's not Steeler football' Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II told fans that the team needs to improve upon a leaky run defense next season. Although ranked 10th against the run, the Steelers permitted 102 rushing yards or more in five of their final six games -- including 164 in a 45-42 setback to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC divisional round of the playoffs.

He’s still one of the rookie QBs who doesn’t completely stand out like what a real future MVP QB would be. There are many other great experienced There are also many great rookie QBs that really stands out like Wentz, Goff, Watson, and Mahomes. Bortles is good but just not enough to be in the top 10.

Along comes Blake Bortles . His rise to stardom at Central Florida during his junior year could potentially rocket him to the top of a draft flush with quarterback-starved teams picking in the top five. Still, Bortles doesn't pretend he knows anything — yet — about being the face of a franchise in the

Blake Bortles will put an $18-million dent into the Jacksonville Jaguars' salary cap next season, and at the moment, that's the 17th-largest figure for a quarterback.

The four-year pro, formerly labeled a draft bust, signed a new three-year contract with the Jags on Saturday, doing away with the $19-million team option Jacksonville held on him for 2018.

His new deal, and subsequent cap hit, will put Bortles in the same financial tier of quarterbacks next season as Tyrod Taylor and Andy Dalton, below the league's elites and above the up-and-comers still playing on rookie contracts:

*Mike Glennon of the Chicago Bears currently ranks 19th with a $16-million cap hit but he's expected to be released in the coming weeks.

The $18-million price tag for Bortles - arguably a game manager on his best day - will turn plenty of heads, though his numbers last season weren't much different than the signal-callers who will impact the cap similarly in 2018:

QBYardsTDINT
Taylor2799144
Bortles36872113
Dalton33202512

The Miami Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, produced an indistinguishable stat line two years ago. He threw for 2,995 yards with 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 13 appearances.

Bortles also ranked near Taylor and Dalton last year in quarterback rating, a stat that contains flaws but remains a relatively accurate measure of performance over the course of a season:

PlayerQB RatingRank
Taylor89.216th
Bortles84.720th
Dalton86.618th

Tannehill was 12th in that category in 2016, registering a more noteworthy 93.5 quarterback rating when healthy.

Bortles may have hit the jackpot with his new $54-million deal, but if he's able to progress as a quarterback even moderately, his contract could, oddly, become quite valuable for the next three seasons.

Jaguars won’t rule out drafting QB after Blake Bortles extension .
Even after handing quarterback Blake Bortles a lucrative extension last week, it’s readily apparent that the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for more from the former top-10 pick . Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone made this clear. “We were excited about that (the extension),” Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said, via Pro Football Talk. “I think Blake has shown during the year that he was progressing, getting better. Obviously when you give a player a contract now, we are looking for more, which we always are. No different than any other position.
