Nick Foles was brought in last season to be the new face of the franchise and in his first game with the Jaguars he suffered an injury that held him out until Week 11. Filling in for Foles was 6th round rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew who quickly became a fan favorite and put up steady numbers in 14 games for the Jaguars. Now in 2020, Foles is out of the picture and the Jaguars are looking to go forward with Minshew as their starting quarterback after his 14 game rookie season which lead him to a 3,271 passing yard season with 21 touchdowns and 344 rushing yards. He looked confident filling in for Foles right from the start as he stepped in Week 1 mid-game against the Chiefs posting 275 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns right out of the gate. Now with a complete offseason under his belt and game experience with success, Minshew will be the leader of this Jaguars offense in 2020. (April 30)
