There had been whispers this off season that the Jacksonville Jaguars were ready to commit to Cougar legend Gardner Minshew as their starting quarterback. Those rumors came to fruition on Wednesday as the Jags traded veteran Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears for a fourth round draft pick. This puts Minshew in the driver’s seat to be the starting quarterback of a rebuilding Jags team.

Minshew is coming off a terrific rookie season in which he threw for 3271 yards 21 touchdowns and 6 interceptions while completing 61% of his passes. The only other quarterback on the current roster is former Steeler’s fourth rounder Josh Dobbs. Expect the Jaguars to sign another cheap veteran or late round pick at the position but Gardner appears to be the man for now.

The Jaguars boast a young roster the Minshew can grow with. The current oldest player is just 29 after the team traded away veterans Calais Campbell and AJ Bouye. They also have 12 picks in the upcoming draft. It will be fun to watch Gardner lead this team of young turks.
