Nick Foles, Jaguars Agree To $88M Deal: Blake Bortles To Be Released

Foles will sign a four-year, $88 million deal with $50.125 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Jaguars need that kind of veteran leadership after their failed attempt to develop Blake Bortles, who is expected to be released.

The Jaguars apparently would have gone another direction at quarterback if the only way to acquire Foles was by trade, but the Eagles, fully committed to Carson Wentz, decided late last month to let Foles hit the free agent market rather than use the franchise tag as a means of trading him.

After the credits roll for Captain Marvel , fans are treated to a mid-credits scene that takes viewers back to the Avengers HQ. Fox's Alita: Battle Angel drew $468,000 in its fourth, reaching $10.2 million. " Isn't it Romantic ", $2.4 million.

Nick Foles will be a Jaguar. He spent one season with them before joining the Chiefs for one year prior to re-joining the Eagles. 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.

Last season, Foles stepped in again after Wentz suffered a back injury, leading the Eagles back to the playoffs with wins in their final three regular season games.

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. But the Jacksonville Jaguars are apparently willing to think that Foles can be PLAYOFF FOLES for an entire season. He owned a record of 6-2 as a starter during his second stint in Philadelphia, including a 4-1 mark in postseason play.
