Jaguars acquire Steelers’ backup quarterback Joshua Dobbs after learning Nick Foles will be out indefinitely with broken clavicle

Published

on

The Jacksonville Jaguars acquired some much-needed quarterback insurance on Monday.

Shortly after learning their no.1 quarterback Nick Foles will be out indefinitely and undergoing surgery later this week to repair a broken clavicle, the Jaguars have decided to acquire Pittsburgh Steelers back-up QB Joshua Dobbs in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick.

Dobbs, 24, appeared in five games with completed six of 12 passing attempts for 43 yards in his limited playing time with the Steelers last season. He will still remain as a back-up for the time being, as rookie Gardner Minshew has been upgraded to starter.

Foles, who signed a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jags this offseason, sustained the injury in the first quarter of the team’s 40-26 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1.

Cam Newton’s foot injury is not recovering as expected, so the team and their star quarterback have decided to get a second opinion.

The Panthers confirmed that Newton will be visiting foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay to get a further understanding about the severity of his sprained foot.

Cowboys acquire DE Michael Bennett from Patriots

The lesson of the day: If you create issues as a member of the New England Patriots, they will not hesitate to ship your ass elsewhere.

Just a week after suspending him for conduct detrimental to the team, the Patriots announced Thursday that they have dealt veteran defensive end Michael Bennett to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a conditional 2021 seventh-round draft pick that could potentially become a sixth rounder.

The 31-year old, who was initially acquired by the Patriots in a trade with the Eagles in March 2019, has recorded five combined tackles, and 2.5 sacks in six games and one start this season.

According to reports, the suspension stemmed from a “philosophical disagreement” with defensive line coach Bret Beielema.
