Bears QB Nick Foles Restructures Contract

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because trades can't become official until after the league year begins Wednesday afternoon.

Foles signed with the Jaguars a year after being named the MVP of Super Bowl 52 in 2018. Foles will rework his contract but will still receive the $21 million guaranteed to him over the next two seasons, per Garafolo. Jacksonville saves a little more than $3m in 2020 by trading him.

Flip and Foles reunited in Jacksonville last season, although the duo couldn't recapture the success they found in Philly.

With Foles now traded, Jacksonville is presumably handing the reins of the offense to Minshew. The Jaguars turned to then-rookie Gardner Minshew, who quickly showed that he was a capable starter.

Jacksonville had been willing to keep Foles as a high-priced backup in 2020.

Nick Foles is on the move again.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace had said the team remains committed to Trubisky despite his regression in 2019. He worked with Bears coach Matt Nagy in Kansas City in 2016 and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo was his offensive coordinator in Jacksonville. His yards (3,138), completion rate (63.2%), touchdowns (17) and rating (83) all dropped from the previous year. He was 25-13 as an Eagles starter over five seasons, including playoffs; in 16 starts with three others teams, he is 5-11, including 0-4 with Jacksonville previous year.

The Detroit Lions have agreed to a two-year, $8m deal with defensive tackle Danny Shelton. Foles started four games before getting hurt, and the Jaguars lost all four of those games.
