The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t had any internal discussions about adding Nick Foles, according to Philadelphia Inquirer’s Zack Berman. Foles would have to be acquired in a trade, the same way he was shipped out of town.
Last year, former head coach Chip Kelly — and personnel guy — traded Foles to the St. Louis Rams — now the Los Angeles Rams — and draft picks for Sam Bradford.
Bradford wasn’t a good fit for Kelly’s system. He’s more of a West Coast system guy, which new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is expected to use this upcoming season.
Just yesterday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said the team wouldn’t tag Bradford and had internal talks about Foles. The Rams are expected to make Foles available in a trade for the right price.
Just because they won’t franchise tag Bradford, doesn’t necessarily mean that he won’t be back with the Birds. They could always re-sign him to a short-term deal as they continue to look for their franchise quarterback.
Neither Foles or Bradford are considered long-term answers. In fact, Foles had a better starting record than Bradford, who was on losing teams.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens here. Do the new Eagles front office led by Howie Roseman and Pederson go after Foles, like Schefter says, or keep Bradford. Either way, they’ll likely be adding a quarterback through free agency, or potentially the draft to help with the problems at the position.
