Jaguars’ Nick Foles Hoping to Improve Footwork

Nick Foles

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles has a lot on his plate as he gets familiar with his new team, and his new role as a franchise quarterback.

Foles is also looking to finally make some improvements to something he has struggled with throughout his career; his footwork.

“If you go back to high school or go back to college, I always have talked about my feet because they are always [a concern],” Foles said, according to ESPN’s Michael DiRocco.

“’ll always work on my feet. Playing for coach [Andy] Reid and coach [Doug] Pederson, it’s always about rhythm. That’s how it is always taught. They are great at the QB position. ‘Flip’ [John DeFilippo] was my coach, my quarterback coach with Frank Reich in Philly. They always harp on feet and target line, and anytime you can keep your feet under you and you work the pocket, you can buy some time.”

Foles knows that it is important for him to put in the work this offseason.

“Football is not 7-on-7; 7-on-7 is a three-hitch throw, a five-hitch throw. Real football is when you have to work the pocket, move, get hit, do all of the crazy throws from bad hips and all that. But you want to always work on your feet and keep them moving.”
