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

The Jacksonville Jaguars were always the favorites to land Nick Foles if he became a free agent, and now that lucrative deal is done, according to Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the deal includes $50.125 million guaranteed.

The Jaguars are reportedly expected to release quarterback Blake Bortles when Foles signs with the team.

Foles was taken by Philadelphia in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft and played the first three years of his career with the franchise.

Foles was the Jaguars' top target and the contract shows they're clearly committed to him as their starter beyond 2020.

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.

Foles secured his place in Philadelphia sports history when he led the Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 52 for their first National Football League championship since 1960.

Foles, 30, had a postseason record of 4-1 the past two years, including winning MVP of Super Bowl LII. He was initially drafted by the Eagles under Andy Reid, but never flourished in Philly until Chip Kelly took over, at which point Foles produced a 27-touchdown, two-interception season. 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 wasn't great to start the season but turned into Late Season Nick once again, helping to take the Eagles to the playoffs and almost making a deep run before the Eagles came up short against the Saints in New Orleans.

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. He also caught a touchdown pass and was named the game's MVP. 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.
