The Jacksonville Jaguars have introduced 2018 Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles as their newest QB.
Foles signed a pretty big contract with the Jaguars. He will receive $88 million over the next four years with $50.1 million in guarantees. That is the most guaranteed money in a Jaguars contract in franchise history, according to John Oehser of Jaguars.com. (RELATED: Nick Foles Writes Emotional Thank You To The Fans Of The Eagles)

“My heart is pounding in my chest just to be a part of Jacksonville and be a part of this community,” Foles said during an NFL press conference Friday.
“The thing I’m most excited about honestly is just getting to know my teammates, being in the locker room, getting to know their personalities,” Foles said. “That’s why I play this game, is to step in the huddle and play with the guys I love, my brothers. Those are the guys I lean on. And that’s what makes a great team.”
Fans took to Twitter to react to the news:
Dude definitely deserves to be a starter somewhere. Good on the Jaguars for picking him up.

Bad move from the Eagles to let him go should have let Carson Wentz go instead.

The haters still won’t acknowledge that all he does is win. Great move by the Jags.

Everyone knows Foles is a great guy who deserves a lot more than playing second to a quarterback who couldn’t take the Eagles all the way to the Super Bowl. He deserved more, and he got it.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who is ready to see what Foles can do as a starter next season.
