Nah. Can’t absorb that contract. We’ve been there and done that with Nick, who got to ride off into the sunset after winning a Super Bowl bowl here and taking the Eagles to the divisional round one year later.

Apparently Jacksonville is ready to move on and hand the keys to Gardner Minshew, according to Dan Graziano and Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, who dropped this nugget in a NFL Combine Insider article:

We know the Lions have been trying to trade cornerback Darius Slay, but other trade candidates include Cardinals running back David Johnson and Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles. Both players carry contracts that would require their current teams to sweeten the deal, either with a pick or by paying part of the salary. And if Arizona can’t re-sign running back Kenyan Drake, Johnson could be a strong fallback (assuming they’ll actually use him this year).

In Jacksonville, word is the Jaguars want to go with Gardner Minshew II as their starting QB and, ideally, find a trade partner for Foles. Could a reunion with former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich in Indianapolis be a possibility for Foles?

Colts sounds like a good fit.

Chargers? Bears? …..Patriots?

Nick had a rough year in Jacksonville after signing a four-year, $88 million contract. He was injured in his debut, Minshew came in and looked good, then Foles struggled when the broken clavicle healed. John Defilippo was then fired at the end of the season.

I’m bummed for Nick. Felt like he had a nice opportunity down there and now this.
