Detailing how Bears got Nick Foles' contract restructured


The Bears are getting a new quarterback in Nick Foles, but how did they fit his contract under the salary cap?

Foles signed a four-year, $88 million deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars last year, leaving a lot of money for the Bears to take on.

Turns out, the Bears are getting Foles with a restructured contract, which is why they only had to send over a fourth-round pick to the Jaguars.

Reports are starting to come out with some details on how the contract was restructured.

Meanwhile, Jacksonville gets some extra financial flexibility, a draft pick and hands the reins over to Gardner Minshew.
