Bears Trade for Nick Foles, a former Super Bowl MVP
According to ESPN, the Bears have traded for QB Nick Foles who was given a 4 year, $88 million dollar contract last off season by the Jaguars. Initially slated as the backup to Carson Wentz in 2018, Foles stepped into the starting role for the Eagles after Wentz tore his ACL week 14. He marched the team through the playoffs in magical fashion, leading them to a Super Bowl victory and was later named Super Bowl MVP. The Bears gave up a 4th round pick, and Foles’ contract will likely be re-negotiated in order retain some salary cap space. He will “compete” with Mitchell Trubisky for the starting QB job. However, given the financial investment, his previous experience with Nagy’s scheme, and familiarity with the offensive coaching staff, he may have already supplanted Mitchell Trubisky as the starting quarterback.
