JACKSONVILLE Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , Fla. (AP) — minutes and then had one request for his new Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback.“I hope every game in 2019 is like the Oakland game of 2013,” said Coughlin, the franchise’s top executive.That’s the game in which Foles threw for 406 yards, with seven touchdown passes, no interceptions and a perfect (158.3) quarterback rating.Foles nodded his head, smiled and turned to look at coach Doug Marrone.No pressure, Nick.The Jaguars formally introduced Foles on Thursday, hours after he signed a four-year, $88 million contract that includes $50.125 million guaranteed.Foles welcomed being a starter again, embraced his new home, and gave Jacksonville the belief it has a franchise quarterback for the first time since Mark Brunell led the team to two AFC championship games (1997, 2000).“This is a real good day,” Coughlin said. “This signing signals change and a new start for the Jacksonville Jaguars.”It also signals the end of the Blake Bortles era.Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell both said they have no regrets about giving Bortles a three-year, $58 million contract just 13 months ago. The deal included $26.5 million guaranteed and will cost the Jags $16.5 million in dead money in 2019. Jacksonville released Bortles on Wednesday, parting with him after five up-and-down seasons.“It was the right thing to do,” Coughlin said. “The guy took us to the AFC championship game (in 2018). There wouldn’t have been anybody that would have disputed the fact that he deserved the opportunity. … So what we did at that point in time is try to fortify our team around him. Obviously, we wish it was better, but I have no regrets about that.”Because of the financial commitment to Bortles Kaleb McGary Jersey , the Jags had to cut five veterans — including former Pro Bowl defenders Tashaun Gipson and Malik Jackson — to create enough salary cap space to sign Foles.Foles will count roughly $12 million against the cap in 2019, leaving Jacksonville about $12 million to spend frugally on a remaining free agent or two.“We have limited funds, so we’re obviously studying everything,” Coughlin said. “We’d like to think there’s a bargain or two out there that we can advantage of. That’s basically where we are.”The Jaguars need a right tackle and at least two tight ends to help Foles.Coughlin also made it clear the team has no plans to deviate from its run-first approach.“I think that Nick won’t have any trouble handing the ball off,” Coughlin said. “We believe in balance. I think it’s the factor which allows and helps the quarterback — to be able to run the ball, to be able to keep defenses off-balance, to not know whether you’re going to run or throw. … But what we truly believe is this quarterback, this young man, gives us the best chance to win.”Foles led the Eagles to four playoff victories over the last two seasons, including the franchise’s first NFL title since 1960. He earned 2018 Super Bowl MVP honors and made himself the league’s premier quarterback commodity.Foles will reunite with former Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, who was hired in January to be Jacksonville’s offensive coordinator.“Coach DeFilippo over here is someone that I’ve been on the biggest stage with,” Foles said. “We have gone through so much together. We know each other’s personalities. He knows how I like to play the game, what my tendencies are. We know how to work together, so that is something that is great.”Foles also will wear No. 7 for the first time since high school.He wanted it in college at Michigan State, but Brian Hoyer had it. He transferred to Arizona, where Willie Tuitama had it. Philadelphia drafted him in 2012, but Mike Vick had it. Foles signed with the St. Louis Rams, who retired it in honor of Bob Waterfield. He signed with Kansas City Kendall Sheffield Jersey , but Aaron Murray had it. He could have donned No. 7 during his return to the Eagles, but opted to stick with No. 9.“This was the first opportunity where I could go back to my roots: my high school and my childhood and I was just playing free like that and wear my No. 7,” he said.Now, he just has to perform like he did against the Raiders in 2013.“This is where I want to finish my career and this is ultimately where we are going to put down roots,” Foles said. “I don’t know if it is ever something I’m going to be able to sit back and realize, ‘Wow, that really happened.’ It’s been a wild ride, but we are so grateful for everything that happened, and we are looking forward to it continuing on.” EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After making three picks on the opening day of the NFL draft, New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman was quick to say how great it is when need and value match.It ended up being the story of all three days of the draft for the Giants, who are in a serious rebuilding mode after winning eight games over the past two seasons.Much had to be replaced with the trades of star receiver Odell Beckham Jr and top sacker Olivier Vernon to Cleveland, the loss of Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins to Washington in free agency, and a roster that had holes and a lack of depth.Gettleman got top-quality players with three first-round picks, but he also put his job on the line taking Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 pick overall.The Giants aren’t going to shove Jones into the starting lineup. He is going to learn for a year or so behind two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning, who is 38 years old and entering the final year of an $84 million contract.However, that’s a big sacrifice. The Giants need a quarterback for the future. Their fans also want them to win now, especially after missing the playoffs six of the past seven seasons and finishing 5-11 last season.The problem is there is no guarantee Jones is going to be a sure thing. He was rated by some as the fourth-best quarterback prospect in the draft. Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur believe he can be a franchise player.“I have to think short term and I have to think long term John Cominsky Jersey ,” Gettleman said of using a No. 6 for a player who probably won’t see much action in 2019.“That’s the box I am in. Coaches have to win now and I ask myself a million times, ‘Have I given Pat and the guys enough players to win?’ It’s tough.”Gettleman said he knew two teams would have taken Jones had he not done so at No. 6, adding it was not easy to pass on Kentucky edge player Josh Allen, who was taken at No. 7 by Jacksonville.“But I think that much of Daniel Jones and his future as an NFL quarterback,” he added.Time will tell, but there is a lot riding on it for the 68-year-old Gettleman, who just finished his second draft since replacing Jerry Reese.Here’s the quick takeaway from the draft:WHO THEY GOTIn addition to Jones, the Giants drafted seven players on defense, a speedy wide receiver and an offensive tackle.The defense needed the most help after finishing 24th in the league and registering 30 sacks, tied for second lowest in the league in 2018.The D line and the secondary got the most help.Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence of Clemson was the 17th pick overall. He is a run stuffer at 344 pounds who can get a push in the middle to help the rush.Cornerback Deandre Baker of Georgia was the third of New York’s three first-round picks, No. 30 overall. The Giants feel he was the top cover cornerback in the draft.Defensive end Oshane Ximines was taken in the third round. He is the first player drafted out of Old Dominion, where he had 33 sacks.Notre Dame cornerback Julian Love was taken in the fourth round. He is fast and can play both the slot and the outside in coverage.Wisconsin inside linebacker Ryan Connelly was the first of two fifth-round picks. He is a fast sideline-to-sideline player who had 89 tackles before his season was ended by hernia surgery. Auburn wide receiver Darius Slayton is a sprinter who averaged 20.3 yards per catch in his career.New York grabbed another speedster in the sixth round, taking Washburn University cornerback and return man Corey Ballentine.The Giants wrapped up the draft by picking Kentucky tackle George Asafo-adjei and Syracuse defensive tackle Chris Slayton in the seventh round.Asafo-adjei was the feel-good story. He was born in New York City and raised by a single mother who worked three jobs. He didn’t get a chance to meet his sister until he was 14 years old because she was living in Ghana and the family could not get her to the United States.SURPRISE MOVEPicking Jones at No. 6. It’s going to be debated for some time.HOW THEY DIDThe Giants met every major need, except drafting a young safety.WHAT’S NEXT?Right tackle is the big issue. Asafo-adjei will be given a chance to challenge incumbent Chad Wheeler. There is a chance veteran free agent right tackle Mike Remmers will be signed. He visited during free agency and is currently rehabbing an injury.
