The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded quarterback Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears.

According to Adam Schefter, the Jaguars shipped Foles to Chicago in return for the Bears’ compensatory fourth-round pick. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

There are two major takeaways from this trade. First and foremost, the Jacksonville Jaguars are now officially Gardner Minshew’s team.

Without Foles in town, there won’t be any debate about who will get all the starting quarterback reps.

It’s the Minshew Mania show going forward, and that’s going to be a ton of fun to watch.

Secondly, and equally important if you’re a fan of the Bears, Mitch Trubisky’s time as a starting quarterback is probably over.

You don’t trade for a guy like Nick Foles to have him ride the bench. The Bears only go and get a guy like that if you’re looking to start him.

After all, Foles is a proven winner with a Super Bowl ring. I’d be stunned if he wasn’t starting week one of the 2020 season.

What a wild few days it’s been in the NFL. This is the kind of stuff we love to see!
