Jalen Ramsey reveals where he would like to play if he were to leave Jaguars Ramsey was asked where he would like to play if he were to leave the Jaguars organization and his answer included an AFC South rival. "It would probably be either here (Titans) or Vegas (Raiders)," Ramsey said. The decision had nothing to do with football. Well, not entirely. He explained that Tennessee and Nevada do not have a state income tax. Compton responded by pointing out that residents of Florida also don't pay state income tax, something Ramsey has clearly gotten used to.

The Jacksonville Jaguars outbid themselves for another mediocre quarterback to give Nick Foles over Not much was asked of the Eagles backup; head coach Doug Pederson ensured that his throws didn't have to We know the Jaguars overpaid for Foles . No rational person will argue against that.

Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday he plans to sit most of his starters, including his quarterback, against Philadelphia this week. Marrone said starters will play in the team's third exhibition game, at Miami next week. But Marrone quickly added that Foles would only get on the field against the Dolphins if Jacksonville's starting offensive line is intact.

Left tackle Cam Robinson (knee), guard Andrew Norwell (quadriceps) and rookie right tackle Jawaan Taylor (knee) were limited participants in practice Tuesday.

"If the third preseason game comes and someone doesn't play, it's probably on the verge of just being cautious," Marrone said.

Marrone rested 31 players, including 20 starters, in the exhibition opener at Baltimore last week. The Jaguars crossed midfield for one play and lost 29-0 .

Jets RB Le’Veon Bell won’t play in the preseason

As expected, former Eagles quarterback Nick Foles will sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars . Reports say the Jaguars plan to release Blake Bortles, whom they drafted third overall in 2014.

Then he came close to retiring He completed an Eagles record 25 successive passes last season against the Redskins, and tied a team

The decision to withhold so many starters was part of Marrone's "smarter approach" to training camp and the preseason , which came a year after Jacksonville lost a number of key guys — most notably receiver Marqise Lee — to injuries. Lee tore several ligaments in his left knee in the team's third preseason game.

"I think it's important that you play that (third preseason) game because you are presenting and you want to get the players in the right frame of mind," Marrone said.

Foles seemed to sense he wouldn't play against the Eagles.

"It'll mean a lot to see those guys pregame and catch up with a lot of those guys," he said. "They're family to me, always will be. So it'll be good to see a lot of their faces and talk to them, see how they're doing."

Foles led Philadelphia 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. He signed a four-year, $88 million contract with Jacksonville in March that included $50.125 million guaranteed.

Winners and losers from Week 1 of NFL preseason

Winners and losers from Week 1 of NFL preseason The NFL is back, and we're here to examine the good and the bad from the first week of preseason action. Winners Daniel Jones The rookie quarterback turned draft night jeers into preseason cheers with a spotless debut in the New York Giants' victory over the Jets. Jones completed all five of his passes for 67 yards, including a beautiful touchdown toss to Bennie Fowler threaded through tight coverage. The Giants drew widespread criticism when they reached in the draft to take Jones sixth overall, but now a chunk of the Big Blue faithful is clamoring for him to start Week 1 of the regular season over Eli Manning.

Nick Foles reportedly will wind up in Jacksonville when NFL free agency opens. For the Jaguars , a team built on a strong defense, there has been a deficiency at quarterback. Broncos rookie tight end Austin Fort tore his ACL in Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks, according to a league

*3. Foles to the Jaguars is no guarantee. *Anything being said along these lines is speculation. The Jaguars ’ quarterback situation will begin playing out around *Caldwell in addition to saying Fournette seemed in good place, said it sounded as if Fournette was taking his nutrition and workouts seriously.

The 30-year-old Foles appears to be a significant upgrade for a team that's spent most of the last 15 years searching for a franchise quarterback. He's poised in the pocket, has a strong grasp of the offense and makes nearly every throw on time and into precise spots. He's also taken on a leadership role, arriving early and staying late.

On Tuesday, after struggling to connect on corner routes during red-zone drills, Foles stuck around after practice and worked to perfect those timing passes with receivers Chris Conley and Keelan Cole. He then opted to run sprints by himself back and forth across the field.

Foles has started 44 games in seven NFL seasons with Philadelphia, Kansas City and St. Louis. He has 68 touchdown passes and 33 interceptions.

Rookie Gardner Minshew is expected to start Thursday night against the Eagles. Foles will be watching and helping from the sideline.

"There's a method behind the madness, so we trust that," Foles said. "We're getting those game reps out here (in practice). Obviously, it's not in a stadium, it's not under the lights, and that is a different animal in itself. But we're getting a lot of work, and when we do take the field, when coach decides that, we'll be ready to roll."
