Jaguars Acquire QB Josh Dobbs From Steelers for Fifth-Round Pick

After losing new QB Nick Foles the Jaguars were in the market for a quarterback, and found one in Pittsburgh in their third-stringer Josh Dobbs.

The Jags traded a 2020 fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh in exchange for Dobbs, who lost out on the backup QB job this summer.

Foles was placed on IR after breaking his left clavicle early during Sunday’s opening day home loss to the Chiefs.

Foles underwent surgery Monday morning and is expected to return “afterward” but no definitive timeline has been set.

Foles was knocked out of the game after being leveled by a pair of Chiefs defenders on the first touchdown throw of his Jacksonville career, a 35-yard pass to DJ Chark.

Dobbs, a fourth-round pick of the Steelers in 2017, went 6-of-12 for 43 yards and one interception.

He lost the backup quarterback job to 2018 pick Mason Rudolph in camp, becoming expendable.
