The Jaguars have played the role of favorite for Nick Foles since the day the Eagles opted not to apply the franchise tag.

The deal could happen sooner than later.

Mike Silver of NFL Media reports that the Jaguars and the free agent quarterback could agree on a lucrative multi-year deal by the “end of the night.”

Washington filled its quarterback need with a trade for Case Keenum to eliminate one possibility for Foles.

Foles, 30, went 4-1 in the postseason the past two seasons and 6-2 in the regular season in place of Carson Wentz the past two seasons.

The Jaguars are seeking an upgrade on Blake Bortles.

  1. The Jags will be richly rewarded by Nick Foles. The guy is a winner. 10-3 in his last 13 starts. 26-18 overall in his career. Super Bowl 52 MVP. Pro Bowl MVP.

    The Jags instantly will become contenders again just by signing Nick Foles.

  2. I hear “lucrative” and “multi-year” and cringe. It better be frontloaded to leave them flexibility in a year or 2. Otherwise this will be just as bad if not worse than extending Bortles. And that’s saying something.

  3. Does any Jags fan really think Bortles could have played as well as Foles in those high pressure playoff games? Do they really think Bortles could go against the Pats in the SuperBowl and dominate to the point of being the games MVP? Of course not. This is a no-lose gamble by the Jags.

    There’s just no way Foles could do worse than Bortles. Stop worrying if Foles can do it long-term. You KNOW Bortles can’t. You have a small window left with that defense. You have zero to lose by giving Foles a chance. You had no chance with Bortles.

  4. Foles, overall is a very good Quarterback, sometimes looks bad, but they all do that sometimes. Most of the time he looks very good, and in high pressure games, Extremely good. Great pickup for Jacksonville. congratulations, you guys have a QB who can take you there, and beat even “the most decorated of teams” in professional football history.
    The AFC could have a ‘Patriot slayer”

    Foles has never won a playoff game without Doug pederson
