Bortles has earned whatever comes his way. In the past two season he has had a record of 23-9 in the regular season and in the playoffs he has a record of 4-2, including a trip to 2K Online Franchise Super Bowl IX.
Bortles has yet to play a snap this regular season after suffering a dislocated elbow in the second game of the preseason. Bortles is expected to return to action next week against the Houston Texans.
