  • Jaguars Sign Nick Foles To 4 Years $88 Million

    Foles to Jags for $88M, $50M guaranteed

    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.

    The $50.125 million is the largest amount of guaranteed money in franchise history.

    Originally drafted by the Eagles in the third round in 2012, Foles was traded to the St. Louis Rams before the 2015 season after a few up-and-down years in Philly. He contemplated retirement following a difficult year in St. Louis, but instead rejoined coach Andy Reid as a backup with the Kansas City Chiefs before returning to Philly in a similar role in 2017.

    A signing that received little attention at the time proved to be one of the most important in Eagles franchise history, as Foles took over for Wentz down the stretch that season and helped the team to its first Super Bowl title. He completed 73 percent of his passes -- an NFL single-season record -- and threw six touchdowns with one interception during that playoff run en route to being named Super Bowl MVP.

    He proved it was no fluke by again saving the Eagles' season in 2018, helping them to three straight wins in place of an injured Wentz to close the regular season and a road victory over the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round of the playoffs.

    Foles has completed 62 percent of his passes in 54 career games, with 68 touchdowns to 33 interceptions. He has the sixth-best career postseason passer rating (98.8) in NFL history.
