The Facts: As the Bears talk to Teddy Bridgewater about a starting job, they’re talking to the Jaguars about Foles. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Bears have reached out about the Super Bowl LII MVP.
Diehards Line: Foles signed a four-year, $88 million deal last year with the Jaguars. A Week 1 broken collarbone opened the door for Minshew Mania, and by the end of the season it had become clear that the Jaguars are all in with the sixth-round pick from Washington State. A trade to the Bears would reunite Foles with former Chiefs assistant Matt Nagy, whose time with Foles also includes the quarterback’s rookie season in Philadelphia. Foles played in three games during his one season with the Chiefs, generating a passer rating in excess of 100. In addition, Andy Dalton has been mentioned as another player the Bears might target if other options fall through.
