CBS Sports is playing with fire, folks
The Jacksonville Jaguars do not need a first round quarterback. They don’t want a first round quarterback. They will not draft a first round quarterback.
And yet... y’all persist in this devil magic.
Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports is the latest draft analysis playing with fire as he predicts the Jaguars striking a deal with the New York Giants to where Yannick Ngakoue goes to New York and the team swaps first round picks. Jacksonville now has the No. 4 overall pick and New York has the No. 9 overall pick.
Okay, who do we come away wi-OH MY GOD KILL IT WITH FIRE.
Nick Foles “grateful” for trade to Chicago Bears
Nick Foles wanted to be in Chicago. He made that perfectly clear.

After further clarification, Foles went on to give an answer that lasted three minutes and nine seconds, addressing the details of his trade and restructured contract with the Bears.
