A few months ago, there was speculation that Nick Foles could potentially return to the Philadelphia Eagles. Those days are long gone now.

The Eagles have their quarterback depth chart filled, as they’re already in training camp. According to head coach Doug Pederson, Sam Bradford — who was traded for Foles a little over a year ago — is expected to be the team’s starter. Chase Daniel signed with the team in the off-season for the next three-years. Also, future starter Carson Wentz was drafted with the second overall pick after the Birds made a trade with the Cleveland Browns.

On Wednesday, Foles requested his release from the Rams. He wasn’t happy there after they acquired the No. 1 overall pick in a trade with the Tennessee Titans before drafting Jared Goff.

Now, Foles is a free agent for the first-time in his career. His caree record isn’t good, but there still will be interest as a back-up.

It’ll be interesting to see where Foles goes, as he could potentially sign before the start of the season. Or he could also wait until somebody goes down with an injury during the season then sign with a team.

He’ll likely get a one-year deal with his new home.

Even though Pederson is a new head coach for the team, their general manager Howie Roseman isn’t new. He was with the team when they decided that Foles was not the long-term answer in 2014.

When Foles went out with an injury, Mark Sanchez replaced him — and that’s when the speculation began to swirl.
