The Jacksonville Jaguars will sign former Eagles quarterback Nick Foles to a four-year deal worth $88 million, according to ESPN and multiple sources.

The deal includes $50.125 million in guaranteed money, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter.

 

I really love the guy. As far as I'm concerned he's proven himself on the field and by how well he's handled everything off it. He's climbed the mountain twice and planted the flag once. The Jags are fortunate...and a little short on cash at the moment.

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

Jags are getting pounded for this deal....

 

 

Foles will reportedly sign a four-year, $88 million deal, including $50.2 million in guarantees, when free agency officially opens on Wednesday. This comes one year after the team gave Bortles a three-year, $54 million extension. To make room for Foles' contract, the Jaguars will cut Bortles and eat $16.5 million in dead money. Jacksonville is using A LOT of its cap space on the quarterback position and it's difficult to even say that they've made a major upgrade.

Let's just ignore the early part of Foles career and focus on the last two seasons, which is when he really earned that contract. Since 2017, Bortles has a higher yards-per-attempt (6.9 to 6.2), a near-identical adjusted net yards per attempt, which factors in touchdowns, interceptions and sacks, (6.48 to 6.49) and has rushed for 687 yards and three touchdowns compared to Foles' 20 rush yards.

Jacksonville just forked over $50 million in guarantees for a marginal upgrade over this...When factoring in the money, you could make the argument that the Jaguars are worse off at the quarterback position now than they were 24 hours ago. Foles and Bortles will account for at least $30 million in cap space next season. That's $30 million on maybe the least enviable QB situation in the league!......Not much was asked of the Eagles backup; head coach Doug Pederson ensured that his throws didn't have to go that far. Only Cody Kessler and Jeff Driskel averaged fewer air-yards-per-completion - which measures how far the actual throw goes instead of the total yardage of the completion with yard after the catch. On throws aimed more than five yards downfield, Foles' passer rating dropped to 79.9, which ranked 33rd in the league, according to Sports Info Solutions. And nearly half of Foles' passing yards in 2018 (652 of 1,413) came on 0/1-step drops, screens and RPO's, per SIS. Those are the kind of throws - which don't require complex reads - we typically associate with college-style offens...https://www.msn.com/...EozG?li=BBnb7Kz

I don't think it was a smart signing.
