The Jaguars can send Leonard Fournette — their former top pick and a very talented player who has struggled with injuries and hasn’t meshed well with the front office — to the Eagles for Foles and a throw-in pick down the road, says Will Brinson of CBSSports.com.
There are some contractual issues here that might hold things up on both ends. Foles is either going to have his option picked up or will be given the franchise tag and traded. So he won’t be cheap. Fournette isn’t cheap either — he has a top-10 salary over the next two years at the running back position.
Philly might not be willing to spend at the position, but Fournette is a better pass catcher than he gets credit for, and he could excel in Doug Pederson’s scheme. The Eagles were at their best with LeGarrette Blount and Jay Ajayi running downhill.
If you hate the Fournette idea, just sub in a second-round pick from the Jaguars instead and roll with it:
