Nick Foles signs with Jacksonville Jaguars

Nick Foles, MVP of Super Bowl LII, is expected to sign a four-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaquars worth $88 million. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports more than half of Foles' reported new deal will be guaranteed.

Foles' deal can reach up to $102 million, according to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer.

The Jaguars are getting their man and Nick Foles is getting PAID. The Eagles announced that they would not franchise tag Foles, allowing the seven-year pro to enter unrestricted free agency.

Foles, 30, was drafted by the Eagles in the third round of the 2012 National Football League draft. He guided Philadelphia to three consecutive wins to finish the season, earning a playoff berth in the process and further establishing himself as a winning quarterback.

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

Foles had stepped in to replace starter Carson Wentz, who had suffered a torn ACL late in the season.

Foles, 30, played in five games for Philadelphia last season, filling in for an injured Wentz in both September and December. 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.
