Bortles, at age 30, made an unexpected retirement announcement from the NFL.
Bortles was asked whether he may join an NFL club soon during an interview on Pardon My Take.
That's when he stated that he retired.
"I last played with a football in January and since then I have avoided them.
Even though I'm officially retired, I haven't told anybody.
Probably a couple of months ago, but I chose to keep it to myself.
