The big waves of NFL free agency are over, but notable names are still scattered throughout the market. Sometimes, late in the offseason, or late in careers, the best play is the familiar one. With that in mind, here are five reunions that make sense for the 2022 season, from Nick Foles reconnecting with an old Super Bowl friend to Julio Jones teaming back up with his quarterback:
Nick Foles and the Jaguars
Recently released from the Bears, who mismanaged him as a pricey No. 3 quarterback, Foles remains top-level insurance, possessing a solid arm, elite leadership and a penchant for clutch appearances off the bench. Even after spending like crazy this offseason, the Jaguars can afford to upgrade the backup spot behind Trevor Lawrence, especially considering Foles' ties to new coach Doug Pederson, his boss during their famous Eagles title run. Who better to help Lawrence grow in the QB room?
Julio Jones and Matt Ryan
This one makes too much sense. Jones, 33, is no longer the imposing All-Pro he once was. But he'd be a proven model for the Colts' other big boys out wide, Michael Pittman Jr. and Alec Pierce, while adding depth to a team otherwise built to contend now.
