We’re onto Day 2 of legal tampering and the Jacksonville Jaguars are the headliners from yesterday, signing Nick Foles to a four year, $88 million contract that could escalate all the way to $102 million and included $50 million in guaranteed money.
This is our Super Bowl, folks.
We’re going to try and gather every piece of news, every rumor, and every update in our live blogs through the rest of the week right here. We love you all.

9:46 AM: Jacksonville got votes for best and worst free agency destination, but didn’t come close to leading in either. That’s fine... I’d rather be under the radar because Jacksonville is never going to compete for a top tier free agency landing spot. But Buffalo and Oakland got labeled as the worst? HOO BOY.

9:41 AM: Teddy Bridgewater was ever really an option, was he?
Teddy Bridgewater expected to re-sign with the New Orleans Saints despite a bigger deal on the table from Miami. I’m told Bridgewater values the locker room culture and prospect of one day becoming the Saints starting QB per source informed. #Saints— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) March 12, 2019
6:00 AM: This is still so wild to me. The thought of the Jaguars giving Nick Foles more money than he would have commanded on the open market for locker room respect is so disgusting and so illogical that it has to be true, right?
