Probably one of the better scenarios for Foles, and this will be the end of Bortles in Jacksonville. Of course, this is barring last minute changes and any other "tampering" that might occur from other teams.

Barring any last-minute snags, the Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to sign free-agent quarterback Nick Foles to a multiyear contract when the new league year opens next week, according to sources.

Teams are not allowed to talk deals with free agents until March 11, and no deals can be announced until the start of the new league year on March 13.
