According to Ian Rapoport, Eagles GM Howie Roseman has confirmed the team will NOT franchise tag Nick Foles, allowing the veteran QB to test the free agent market.
This obviously a huge win for Foles. But it's also a big time development for all the QB needy teams out there. Now, instead of having to trade for Nick Foles, teams will be able to sign the former Super Bowl winner straight up. At what cost remains to be seen, but it seems likely that he'll command upwards of $20 million per year.
Among the teams around the league that have a need at QB, the Jaguars may be the best fit. Jaguars' offensive coordinator John DeFilippo worked with Foles as his QB coach in Philly during the Eagles' magical Super Bowl run in 2017 and got the most out Foles that season. And Flip is well known for squeezing the most out of the QBs he's worked with over the years. That makes this potential fit enticing for both sides.
Another reason Foles might be most interested in the Jaguars? They have a team that's ready to compete for a championship on the defensive side of the ball and plenty of draft picks to get some help at the skill positions on offense.
Will Foles to Jacksonville happen? Only time will tell, but this development makes it much, much more likely.
