On Tuesday, the Chicago Bears officially announced that they acquired quarterback Nick Foles from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a compensatory fourth-round draft pick. It's a trade has soothed the hearts of fans in the Windy City -- even if Foles wasn't the best gunslinger available -- in that it signals that Mitchell Trubisky won't simply be handed the starting job next season. Well, Foles continued to win over Bears Nation with a special, self-recorded message while donning the iconic "1920" all-orange cap to celebrate the trade becoming finalized.
Other than acknowledging that he's grateful to be a part of the Bears franchise, Foles admirably used the final seconds of the clip to encourage individuals to stay safe as the nation continues to combat the coronavirus crisis.
We would expect nothing less from the former Super Bowl champ, who is truly one of the most humbly authentic players in the NFL.
As for Bears fans, well, you have no reason not to be excited. Foles is officially all yours.
