The Jacksonville Jaguars believe they found their quarterback of the future. The team signed free agent Nick Foles on Wednesday.
He received a four-year, $88 million deal.
Foles will replace Blake Bortles as the team’s starting quarterback. With Foles putting pen to paper, the team is expected to release Bortles.
Just one year ago, he had signed an extension with the Jaguars. However, during the 2018 season, Bortles was benched a few times, as the team had a disastrous season.
The Philadelphia Eagles briefly picked up his $20 million option for the 2019 season. However, Foles elected to get out of the deal by paying the team back $2 million to become a free agent.
Foles knew for some time now that he was not in the Eagles future. The team is expected to go with Carson Wentz for the foreseeable future.
The 30-year-old Austin, Texas native spent the last two seasons with the Eagles. He has spent five seasons of his seven-year career in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
This season, he made five regular season starts for the team. He went 4-1 in those contests.
Foles went 141 of 195 for 1,413 yards. He also had seven touchdowns and four interceptions.
In two playoff games, he went 1-1. In those contests, he went 43 of 71 for 467 yards. He also had three touchdowns and four interceptions.
In his career, he has appeared in 54 games with 44 starts. He has a 26-18 record. He has gone 974 of 1,581 for 11,165 yards with 68 touchdowns and 33 interceptions.
