NFL Free Agency 2020: Predicting Where Tom Brady and Other Star QBs Will Land

The Jacksonville Jaguars may want a mulligan on the four-year/$88 million deal that they inked Nick Foles to last offseason. Unfortunately for them, they're probably stuck with the former Super Bowl MVP for at least another year, especially when you consider how deep the market for quarterbacks is this season, be it in a trade or through free agency.

As you're about to be reminded, we're getting set to enter perhaps the deepest free agent quarterback class in NFL history. Additionally, teams that don't land a quarterback through free agency could draft one, with Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert among the quarterbacks that are expected to be taken in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. With the trade route potentially closed, the Jaguars' hands may be tied, as the team would have to take on nearly $34 million in dead cap money to release the 31-year-old.

So, one of the strangest NFL careers ever will likely continue with Foles in Jacksonville, backing up Gardner Minshew II. It's not yet clear if Foles will have a chance to beat Minshew II out for the starting job. If he doesn't - or if he were to lose a training camp battle - he's eminently qualified to be a backup quarterback in the NFL. But he'll be a pretty damn expensive one.

Foles is likely to stay in Jacksonville for a second season, but there's expected to be plenty of quarterback movement next week, with the legal tampering window set to open on March 16, two days before free agents can sign with new teams. Here are RADIO.COM Sports' final predictions on where the most notable veteran quarterbacks will end up this offseason, whether it's in free agency or a trade:
