The Jaguars have reached a 4-year deal with QB Nick Foles. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's a 4-year, $88 million pact with $50.125 million guaranteed. That's obviously a pretty serious commitment. We'll see how long it takes Jacksonville to realize that the 30-year-old Foles isn't really an upgrade over Blake Bortles. Foles is a QB3 for common-sized fantasy football leagues, and he doesn't significantly enhance the outlook for Jacksonville's wideouts. Ian Rapoport reports that the Jags are expected to release Bortles once the Foles deal becomes official.

The Jaguars are set to hire Jay Gruden as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gruden is coming off a failed stint as Washington's HC but did help the Redskins to top-17 finishes in total yards in each of his first 4 seasons, including a 3rd-place finish in 2016. Prior to that, Gruden spent 3 years as Cincinnati's OC. Those teams ranked 20th, 22nd and 10th in total yards. The big question in Jacksonville this offseason is what will happen at QB between Nick Foles, Gardner Minshew and potentially a rookie or free-agent addition.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against the Bucs. He completed just 7 of 14 passes for 93 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT in the game's first 30 minutes. Foles also lost 2 fumbles. QB Gardner Minshew will finish out the game for the Jags. We'll see who they go with for Week 14 and beyond.

Jaguars HC Doug Marrone announced Tuesday that QB Nick Foles will be the starter coming out of the Week 10 bye. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew exceeded all expectations filling in for Foles, completing 61.2% of his passes, averaging 7.4 yards per attempt and tossing 13 TDs vs. 4 INTs. Money is winning out here, though, after Jacksonville gave Foles $50 million guaranteed this offseason. He's worth adding in all 2-QB leagues and deeper 1-QB leagues. The Jags have the easiest remaining QB schedule, including games against the Bucs (Week 13), Raiders (Week 15) and Falcons (Week 16).

Jaguars QB Nick Foles will undergo surgery on his broken left clavicle on Monday. “We don’t have a time span [for return]," Foles said. “We’re going to take it one day at a time ... I’m going to do everything I can to get back as quickly as I can to where I’m ready to roll.” Pro Football Talk speculates that Foles could be placed on IR-designated-to-return. That'd knock him out until at least Week 10. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew is set to take over as Jacksonville's starter. He played well against the Chiefs on Sunday but is still a downgrade for this entire Jags offense.

Jaguars QB Nick Foles has been diagnosed with a broken left clavicle, according to The Athletic's Phillip Heilman. That figures to knock Foles out until at least October. We should get a more concrete timeline over the next couple of days, but it'll be Gardner Minshew under center in Jacksonville for the foreseeable future. The 6th-round rookie played surprisingly well in relief of Foles vs. the Chiefs, completing 22 of 25 passes for 275 yards, 2 scores and 1 INT.
