Foles first arrived in Jacksonville on Wednesday night at Jacksonville International Airport and had a physical Thursday morning before heading to TIAA Bank Field.

The quarterback, who led the Philadelphia Eagles to a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots in 2018, said it means a lot to him that the Jaguars believe in him.

"It's a special moment in my career and life to have a franchise believe in me. I've learned so much about who I am as a player and person so I'm just going to be myself," Foles said.

Jaguars Executive Vice President of Football Operations Tom Coughlin called the signing of Foles a "good day" for the team.

"Nick is the right person for our team and our community. He's a winner, faced adversity, but led his team to a Super Bowl," Coughlin said.

Foles said he looked forward to getting to know his teammates.

"There's so much talent here but bonding in the locker room is key. I'm a new player so I have to get to know everyone. We want to complicate football with x's and o's but most important part is relationships," Foles said.

While the city of Philadelphia means a lot to Foles and his family, he said he wants to finish his career as a Jaguar.

"This is where I want to finish my career. It's been a wild ride and we are so grateful for everything that's happened," Foles said.
