Jacksonville brass moved swiftly as the National Football League tampering period before free agency began Monday, adding the former Eagles quarterback in a long-rumored move for four years and a reported $88 million, with $50.125 guaranteed. Foles can earn $102 million over the course of his contract if he hits his incentives. But the Jacksonville Jaguars are apparently willing to think that Foles can be PLAYOFF FOLES for an entire season.

And according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, he'll be getting plenty of guaranteed money. He spent his first three seasons with Philadelphia before being traded to the Rams in exchange for Sam Bradford.

Foles, 30, leaves Philadelphia as a hero after beating Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII two seasons ago. The Eagles announced that they would not franchise tag Foles, allowing the seven-year pro to enter unrestricted free agency.

He latched on with the Chiefs for a year as a backup, then returned to Philly to sit behind Carson Wentz, who had been drafted as the No. 2 overall pick. He was named Super Bowl MVP.
