Bears trade for veteran quarterback Nick Foles

by - Senior Editor -

The Mitch Trubisky era might be coming to an end in the Windy City.

The Chicago Bears are making a huge move as they have traded for veteran quarterback Nick Foles in exchange for a compensatory fourth-round pick (#140 overall). This gives the Jaguars an impressive 12 picks in the upcoming NFL draft.

The Bears will have to take on the final three years of Foles' contract worth an estimated $50 million. The other quarterback that the Bears had seriously contemplated reportedly was Andy Dalton.

Nagy and Foles have worked together in 2016 with the Kansas City Chiefs and it now appears that signal-caller Mitch Trubisky has serious competition in the quarterback room in Chicago.

Foles has won four playoff games as a starter since 2017 while the Bears have won four playoff games since the start of the 1991 season according to ESPN Stats and Information.

He originally signed a four-year $88 million with $50 million guaranteed as an unrestricted free agent in 2019 with the Jaguars.

In 2019, he completed 77 out of 117 passes for three touchdowns and two interceptions.
