Eagles QB Foles expected to sign with Jaguars


But the Eagles’ announcement that they don’t plan to use the franchise tag on Foles would seem to make any possible tampering concerns moot.)


Jacksonville has been widely speculated as the most likely landing spot, but it was still possible to make cases for other hypothetical suitors, such as the New York Giants.


But it seemed Gettleman was talking about possibly bringing in veteran competition for Manning while the Giants develop the quarterback they are expected to draft sixth overall next month.


They aren’t in a long-term rebuild situation — they came very close to facing the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, blowing a 20-10 fourth-quarter lead over the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, but they slid to 5-11 last season, after a 3-1 start.


The Jags having hired as their offensive coordinator John DeFilippo, who was Foles’ quarterbacks coach for the Eagles’ Super Bowl run.


The second part might be trickier: Though all sacks are not automatically the fault of any offensive line, the Jags did give up 53 of them last season, leaving them tied for third-worst in the NFL.
