UCF quarterback Blake Bortles had formal interviews during the Combine with eight teams, according to the Orlando Sentinel. And the Jets were one of them.

“I did everything I could to just stick out in their head, so they know this is who I am, these are my goals, this is what I want to try to do,” Bortles told the paper. “That I’m going to do everything I can to help an organization in becoming successful.”

In addition to the Jets, the former Knights signal-caller also had formal interviews with the Texans, Jaguars, Raiders, Titans, Rams, Buccaneers and Vikings.
