This article is part of our NFL Free Agency series.
The 2020 league year officially began at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, bringing an end to the 52-hour period most commonly referred to as the legal tampering window. Most of the big trades and contract agreements took place within that window, but there was still some work to be done Wednesday, and even now there are a few fantasy-relevant players that remain unsigned.
The QB Carousel
- The Biggest news of the day was Chicago sending Jacksonville a compensatory fourth-round pick for Nick Foles, who then agreed to a restructured contract that allows him to void his deal after either 2020 or 2021. This means he's likely to be a free agent (or negotiate a new contract) next offseason, as the Bears will cut him if he stinks in 2020, while Foles will have leverage to cash in big again if he plays well. I'm all but assuming Foles will be the Week 1 starter, though the Bears likely will call it a competition between him and Mitchell Trubisky. It's still a bad situation, one where Foles mostly looks good by virtue of not being Trubisky.
- Meanwhile, the Jags are left with Gardner Minshew, wisely picking the younger quarterback as they embark on a rebuilding project. It now feels safe to select Minshew as a low-end QB2 in early drafts, with his aggressive style potentially allowing for decent fantasy numbers even if he doesn't turn out to be "the guy" in Jacksonville.
