QB trade: Jacksonville is trading QB Nick Foles to Chicago for the Bears’ compensatory fourth-round pick, sources tell ESPN.
Bears’ coaches such as Matt Nagy have worked with Foles in past and know him well.

Mike Garafolo says Nick will restructure his contract as part of the trade. He was entering year two of his four year, $88 million dollar deal, which guaranteed him 50 million.
Foles, of course, was injured last year in DUVAL, Gardner Minshew came in, played well, and became a pseudo-sensation with his dumbass mustache. Then Nick got healthy and came back only to lose his starting job. The Jags fired John Defilippo and blah blah blah, which is why we’ve reached this point.
Nick’s receiving corps in Chicago is okay. He’s got Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller. Tarik Cohen will catch balls out of the backfield. Hopefully they draft a stud WR or Matt Nagy has a good game planning and play calling year, because that’s a tough division with Green Bay and Minnesota and the Bears also have the AFC and NFC South on their schedule (Saints, Tom Brady and the Bucs, Tennessee, etc). The Eagles don’t play Chicago.
