2019 NFL Power Rankings: Los Angeles Rams in good shape with free agency underway
24. Jacksonville Jaguars
While Blake Bortles will be looking to take advantage of a fresh start on a new team with the Rams as the new backup to Jared Goff, the Jacksonville Jaguars hope all of the money invested in Nick Foles will pay off in the best way possible.
As much as the former Super Bowl MVP would have preferred to remain on the Philadelphia Eagles, deep down Foles knew this would be impossible unless he would be willing to take a massive pay cut, which would have been foolish.
Now that Foles is the new go-to guy for the Jaguars under center, it’s up to the team to make sure their new quarterback has the necessary weapons to work with since this was one of the reasons why Bortles struggled in 2018 since no one really stepped up at wide receiver.
One would think after seeing what the Jaguars were willing to pay Foles, they would make it a top priority to make sure he has the proper weapons to work with at wide receiver since the offense is already set with Leonard Fournette in the backfield.
What Foles has been able to accomplish over the last two seasons with the Eagles has truly been amazing since it saved his NFL career, but now the pressure comes of continuing to find success on a new team.
