Who is Gardner Minshew

That breakout season prompted the Jacksonville Jaguars to to give the 6-1 225-pound Gardner Minshew a chance to shine in the NFL, choosing him in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft with the No. 178 pick. His chance came far sooner than expected. After free agent signing Nick Foles broke his collarbone in Week 1, Minshew started 12 games as a rookie and filled in for Foles in two others. He proved he belonged in the NFL, throwing for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns to six interceptions. He used his 4.97 40-yard dash to add an additional 344 yards on the ground. Minshew finished his rookie season with a QBR of 44.6 a fantasy finish as the QB18 on a per-game basis, and did enough to enter the following season as the starter in Jacksonville. A thumb injury to one of his 10.125-inch hands cut his season in half and prevented him from living up to his ADP of the QB22. Minshew started eight of a possible 16 games and filled in for another. He again put up solid numbers in 2020 (2,259 yards, 16 touchdowns, five interceptions, 6.9 yards per attempt, 66.1-percent completion percentage), but it was not enough to lead the Jags to more than one win on the season.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for the Jaguars wretched 2020 season came in the form of Trevor Lawrence, whom the Jaguars selected No. 1 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft. However, that made Minshew the odd man out. The Jaguars dished him to Philadelphia for a sixth-round pick in August of 2021, where he backed up starter Jalen Hurts. He only made two starts in 2021, throwing for 428 yards, 362 air yards, eight deep ball attempts, and four touchdowns to one interception. He is under contract for one more season, where he will continue to back up Hurts.
