Foles is signing a four-year, $88 million deal with the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Foles to the Jaguars connection has been rumored since early in the offseason but now it appears a deal will be made official once the new league year begins. The money and duration of the contract suggests that the Jaguars view Foles as a long-term solution, which should end speculation of the team using an early draft pick on quarterback. Foles completed 72 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and four interceptions over five games with the Eagles in 2018.

Foles is expected to sign with Jacksonville when the new league year opens next week, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Among quarterback-needy teams, Jacksonville is one of the few that seems to prefer a veteran over a rookie. Denver is the other team that stands out, but Foles isn't a fit now that the Broncos have an agreement in place to acquire Joe Flacco. It's expected the Jaguars will release fellow quarterback Blake Bortles, despite owing him $6.5 million in guaranteed 2019 base salary even if he isn't on the roster. Jacksonville isn't a good spot for Foles to establish fantasy value, as the team lacks a dominant pass catcher and presumably hopes to win games on the basis of its talented defense and rushing attack.

The Eagles will not place the franchise tag on Foles, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles has officially been set free and will become an unrestricted free agent in March. There's no question there will be a strong market for the former Super Bowl MVP's services.

Foles reportedly declined the $20 million mutual option for 2019 on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles exercised their side of the option earlier Tuesday night and Foles wasted little time issuing his decision to pay the $2 million buyout. Philadelphia now has until March 5 to place the franchise tag on Foles -- which is expected to be about $25 million for quarterbacks in 2019 -- or he will hit free agency. The team would do so in an attempt to trade the veteran quarterback, looking to receive a better or more immediate return than the compensatory draft pick they would be given should he depart via free agency.

The Eagles picked up Foles' $20 million mutual option for 2019 on Tuesday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles now has five days to accept the option or decline and pay back $2 million from his 2018 bonus to become a free agent. Things get a bit messier should the veteran quarterback pick up his side of the option, as the Eagles' dire cap situation makes it difficult to carry such a high cap figure heading into the 2019 season as they would attempt to work out a trade. Regardless, Foles' will assuredly be sought after given his performance in Philadelphia the past two seasons.

The Eagles are expected to pick up Foles' $20.6 million option for 2019, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move was expected, and whenever it officially happens, Foles will then have five days in order to accept the option or to decline and pay back $2 million to become an unrestricted free agent. There's a litany of different scenarios that could follow after that point, including the Eagles working with Foles to potentially engineer a trade should the 29-year-old accept the option, but regardless, Foles is expected to be a hot commodity in the offseason with a number of quarterback-needy teams evidently interested.

Foles completed 18 of 30 passes for 201 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions during the Eagles' 20-14 loss to the Saints in Sunday's NFC divisional-round playoff game. He also netted zero yards on two rushes but scored a one-yard touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

Foles and the Eagles looked like they were getting ready to cook up another serving of postseason magic early on, as they took a surprising 14-0 first-quarter lead. Foles first found Jordan Matthews on a perfect 37-yard pass downfield to open the scoring, and he then added his own one-yard touchdown dive later in the period to cap off a 10-play, 75-yard march. However, that would be it in terms of any appreciable success for both the veteran signal caller and Philadelphia itself, as the Saints defense shut them out the remainder of the contest. New Orleans finally clinched victory with 1:52 remaining on Marshon Lattimore's second interception of the evening, although it came on a pass that deflected off Alshon Jeffery's hands. Foles now heads into the offseason with an uncertain NFL future, as he'd be on the books for an untenable $20.6 million in 2019 as per Spotrac. He'll only be 30 years of age at the beginning of next season, so he'll presumably be attractive as a possible trade asset if his contract can somehow be made more palatable.

Coach Doug Pederson confirmed Monday that Foles would remain the Eagles' starting quarterback for the team's matchup with the Saints this weekend in the NFC divisional round, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The decision was an obvious one with Foles having guided the Eagles to four straight victories -- including a road upset of the Bears in the wild-card round Sunday -- while Carson Wentz has been recovering from a back fracture. Pederson noted that Wentz is "still getting healthy," but the 2016 first-round pick won't be available even in a backup capacity versus New Orleans, leaving Nate Sudfeld to work as Foles' understudy. It's generally expected that Wentz will remain sidelined for the duration of the Eagles' postseason run, but the team has thus far resisted moving him to injured reserve.

Foles completed 25 of 40 passes for 266 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 16-15 wild-card round win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Foles bounced back beautifully after a pair of first-half interceptions. He put his team up 10-6 with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Dallas Goedert in the third quarter, capping a drive that benefited from a third-down personal foul on the defense and a 33-yard pass interference call. After the Bears retook the lead, Foles engineered yet another game-winning drive, finding Golden Tate for a two-yard touchdown on 4th down with 56 seconds left in the game. A missed field goal by Cody Parkey on Chicago's ensuing possession propelled the Eagles into the Divisional Round, where Foles should benefit from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome's offense-friendly conditions against the Saints.

Foles (ribs) came out of Thursday's practice unscathed and should be good to go for Sunday's wild-card game at Chicago, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles was able to return to full participation at practice Thursday as his bruised ribs apparently didn't cause much of an issue. The veteran quarterback will serve as Philadelphia's starter with Carson Wentz (back) likely sidelined for a playoff run. The 29-year-old will hope to recapture the same form that helped him lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl victory last season, but has a tall task against a Bears defense that hasn't allowed more than 17 points in their last four games.
