NFL Report Jaguars to sign QB Nick Foles to $88 million deal By Vincent Frank

The Jacksonville Jaguars are finding their next answer at quarterback, signing free agent Nick Foles in a move that has been widely expected since the Eagles decided not to place the franchise tag on the former Super Bowl MVP, according to multiple reports and as first reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. The Associated Press reported that the deal includes $50.125 million guaranteed and could be worth up to $102 million with incentives.

After plenty of anticipation, the Jacksonville Jaguars appear to have found a new starting quarterback and his name is Nick Foles.

The Jags have the 7th overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Foles informed the Eagles on February 5th that he would buy his way back into free agency, not picking up his end of the mutual option and paying the team back $2 million to do so.

The Chiefs placed their franchise tag on Ford recently but they have shown signs of being open to moving him soon. The 49ers are coming off a season where they finished with only 37 sacks, tied for 22nd in the league.

For Foles, the primary objective of this offseason was to find a team he could call his own following two incredible seasons as the backup to Carson Wentz with the Philadelphia Eagles. Louis Rams prior to the 2015 season and spent the 2016 season with the Kansas City Chiefs before signing a two-year contract that returned him to the Eagles in 2017.

Last season, Foles stepped in again after Wentz suffered a back injury, leading the Eagles back to the playoffs with wins in their final three regular season games.

Foles, 30, had a postseason record of 4-1 the past two years, including winning MVP of Super Bowl LII. The Eagles won three of the last four regular season games with Foles at the helm, then defeated the Atlanta Falcons and Minnesota Vikings in the NFC playoffs before taking down the defending champion Patriots. He completed 73 percent of his passes - an National Football League single-season record - and threw six touchdowns with one interception during that playoff run en route to being named Super Bowl MVP.

Foles has completed 62 percent of his passes in 54 career games, with 68 touchdowns to 33 interceptions. This past season they were able to make it to the divisional round with Foles behind center, but were eliminated by the New Orleans Saints.
