Nick Foles is expected to end up with the Jaguars, report says

Who will back up the Eagles’ Carson Wentz after Nick Foles signs elsewhere

Who will back up the Eagles’ Carson Wentz after Nick Foles signs elsewhere

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said last week the team was evaluating the quarterback position and Bortles remained "in the mix" to be its starter.

Yesterday, Bleacher Report senior writer Master Tesfatsion tweeted that the two most likely quarterbacks for the Jaguars in 2019 are Foles and Oakland Raiders starter Derek Carr, who could be available for trade if Jon Gruden's rebuild includes a new quarterback in this year's draft.

Foles, 30, has spent the last two seasons in his second stint with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The only Eagles quarterback to ever win a Super Bowl is bound for Jacksonville when National Football League free agency opens March 13, according to National Football League sources with knowledge of the situation.

Could the Blake Bortles era finally be over in Jacksonville?

Jacksonville is expected to release the 26-year-old quarterback, according to a report from ESPN.

Bowen notes that there is still time prior to March 11 when teams can start talking with players about potential deals, but as of now, the Jaguars are expecting to sign Foles and there isn't going to be much of a market for the Super Bowl LII MVP. The Jaguars have been the ideal team for Foles from the beginning with a championship caliber defense, and familiarity with the teams' offensive coordinator.

Bortles led the Jaguars to the playoffs in 2017 and signed a three-year, $54 million extension before regressing last season. The Jaguars went just 3-9 in his starts and he was benched in favor of backup Cody Kessler.

Jacksonville's interest in Foles is understandable in the sense that they could be a strong, veteran quarterback away from contending again in the AFC.
