Maybe the nine-day competition was good for quarterback Blake Bortles.
Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Bortles has been very good in practice during the three-day stretch since being renamed the starter on Saturday morning. So good, in fact, that Marrone said he has never seen Bortles better.
"I think he's doing a nice job," Marrone said Monday afternoon. "I really do. For me, personally, it's the best I've seen him."

Marrone added that Bortles seems more relaxed and his footwork is better than it was before Marrone opened up the competition, the story said.
