The Jacksonville Jaguars aren't putting pressure on Blake Bortles to win a starting job in training camp. The rookie quarterback was solid in his preseason debut Friday night, throwing for 117 yards and leading a second-half drive for a field goal in a 16-10 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "There was some good stuff, some bad stuff, things that I've got to overcome," Bortles said. "It's a process, it's not going to happen overnight," he added. "The chemistry felt really good with the second unit, we've been working really well together during camp. I thought the offensive line did a really good job of protecting up front." The third overall pick in the draft completed 7 of 11 passes, including a 31-yarder down the middle of the field to Mike Brown to set up a 26-yard field goal that gave the Jaguars a 10-3 lead late in the third quarter. The Bucs were penalized for a late hit on the rookie from Central Florida, tacking on another 15 yards.
