Last offseason, the Jacksonville Jaguars thought they got their QB of the future when they signed Nick Foles to a whopping 4-year, $88 million deal. But now, it seems his tenure with the franchise is up in the air.
Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler of ESPN is now reporting “word is the Jaguars want to go with Gardner Minshew II as their starting QB and, ideally, find a trade partner for Foles.”
Foles bolstered his resume when he lifted the Philadelphia Eagles to a championship after Carson Wentz got injured, winning the Super Bowl MVP after beating the New England Patriots. He would then go 4-1 in the regular season in 2018 before falling in the postseason, but still had an impressive showing that would surely get him paid.
His success stopped there as he lost all four of his starts with the Jacksonville while tossing just three touchdowns and two interceptions.
After getting injured, Gardner Minshew took the league by storm with his stellar play as the Washington State product finished with 21 touchdowns to just six interceptions in 14 appearances.
Foles has a $22.125 million cap hit for 2020.
