Nick Foles is finished in Philly.
The Jaguars are expected to sign the free-agent quarterback to a multi-year contract when the new league year begins March 13, according to multiple reports.
The Philadelphia Inquirer notes the Jaguars appear to be “the only bidder” for now because “a market for Foles outside of Jacksonville has not developed.”
It was also reported Sunday that the Jaguars will likely move on from 26-year-old Blake Bortles.
News of the potential Foles signing comes one week after Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman confirmed the team will not use its franchise tag on Foles. Philadelphia had picked up Foles’ 2019 option for $20 million in February but he quickly voided the option, reportedly paying $2 million as part of the move.
Foles, 30, has 68 touchdowns and 33 interceptions in 54 career games. He also boasts the sixth-best career postseason passer rating (98.8) in NFL history.
Given his late-season heroics the past two years as he stepped up in place of injured Carson Wentz, expect Foles to bring more competition to the AFC South.
