Barring any last-minute snags, the Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to sign free-agent quarterback Nick Foles to a multiyear contract when the new league year opens next week, according to sources.

Teams are not allowed to talk deals with free agents until March 11, and no deals can be announced until the start of the new league year March 13.

The Jaguars are expected to release quarterback Blake Bortles and install Foles as their starter. Jacksonville will still have to pay $6.5 million of Bortles' 2019 salary, which was fully guaranteed at the time he signed his current contract last year.

The Jaguars' expected signing of Foles was first reported by Philly.com.

The Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Wednesday that the team would not place the franchise tag on Foles, leaving him as a free agent.
