JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars are signing former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Nick Foles to a contract, the team confirmed Wednesday.
The contract is a 4-year, $88 million deal with $50 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network.
Foles wore number nine with the Eagles, but will wear seven with the Jaguars.
Nick Foles' introductory press conference with the media will take place Thursday at 1 p.m. First Coast News will stream the press conference on ABC-25 and FirstCoastNews.com.
Foles has started 44 games and has a 26-18 record. He has thrown 68 career touchdowns to 33 interceptions.
He won 'Most Valuable Player' in Super Bowl 52 when he led the Philadelphia Eagles to a victory of the New England Patriots.
The 30-year-old broke the Eagles' record for most passing yards in a single game when he threw 471 yards in a 32-30 win over the Houston Texans in 2018.
Foles was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Foles will be reunited with his former quarterback coach and the Jaguars' new offensive coordinator, John DeFilippo. In an interview with Jaguars.com, DeFilippo emphasized that it was Foles who "wanted to be a Jaguar." He also called Foles a "perfect fit."
"“He’ll have a very familiar terminology,” DeFilippo said in the interview with Jaguars.com. “Unlike a lot of quarterbacks going into new systems who have to learn a whole new system, the majority of our system will be very similar to what Nick’s used to. I think it will be a huge help.”
