Foles signed a big deal with the Jaguars before the 2019 season which was for four years and $88 million. He hurt his shoulder in the season opener and Gardner Minshew took over and played solidly. Foles came back to the lineup, but did not play well.
He has 11,901 passing yards, 71 touchdowns and 35 interceptions on 61.9 percent completion in his career. He has spent time with the Eagles, Rams, Chiefs and Jaguars in his career. His biggest accomplishment is helping the Eagles win their first Super Bowl following the 2017 season.
Chicago struggled offensively last year and acquiring Foles will push Mitchell Trubisky to perform next season.
