Blake Bortles could sign with Broncos after Drew Lock injury

  Blake Bortles could sign with Broncos after Drew Lock injury Bortles, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, spent last season as a backup behind Jared Goff with the Los Angeles Rams. The former UCF star was with the Jacksonville Jaguars for five years before that.

He never lived up to expectations after being the first quarterback taken in 2014.Lock is expected to miss somewhere around a month with a rotator cuff injury.

Ryan Fitzpatrick opened up about the Miami Dolphins benching him in favor of rookie Tua Tagovailoa and he is definitely not happy about the decision. It's obvious Fitzpatrick didn't know the change was coming and it blindsided him.

During media availability on Wednesday, Fitzpatrick was brutally honest about what happened and how he felt:

Man, that's really sad. It feels like the Dolphins could have prepared him at the beginning of the season that this might happen considering that seems like it was the plan all along. It sounds like there was no communication until Fitzpatrick was called with the news.

Let's be real, Tagovailoa is the future in Miami and the Dolphins are smart to get him on an NFL field as soon as possible. You don't draft a guy with the fifth overall pick just to let him sit on the bench. They need to see what they have in him, especially with a talented quarterback crop in this upcoming draft. But this is a rough way to handle the business of benching someone.

The tough part is Fitzpatrick is having a pretty outstanding season. He has completed 70.1 percent of his passes for 1,535 yards, with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's averaged 7.8 yards per attempt, has a passer rating of 95.0 and his QBR of 79.6 ranks seventh in the NFL. The Dolphins are also 3-3 and one game back of the Bills for first place in the AFC East.

It's a shame that the 37-year-old is being benched when he's on a roll. The NFL is a cold business.

He's already been injured twice this season, though. Not great for the team or him considering he's in a contract year. With Travis Kelce, the Bills need Milano. Any time he's not out there, opposing tight ends eat up the Bills defense. Milano's a former college safety and is an elite coverage linebacker.

Tua Tagovailoa has surprising comment about first hit he took .
On just his second snap of the game, Tagovailoa was sacked by star defensive lineman Aaron Donald and fumbled the ball away. The Rams promptly scored four plays later.
