The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly wanted two first-round draft picks in any potential trade for Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles this off-season. The Eagles were reportedly offered a second-round pick by the Cleveland Browns for Foles.
According to NFL.com’s Mike Silver, the Browns offered their 35th overall pick in April’s draft in the second-round for Foles. This was before the Browns pulled off a deal with the Buffalo Bills to acquire Tyrod Taylor in a trade and drafting Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick.
The Eagles, according to Silver, talked to Foles about the potential deal. However, Foles decided to remain in Philadelphia, where he may begin the season despite Carson Wentz being ahead of schedule from his December torn ACL injury.
Foles and the Eagles then re-worked his contract, as now he can leave following the 2019 season. He has done little outside of Philadelphia with his other teams. He will make $4 million this season with a $3 million roster bonus.
Four of his six seasons in the NFL have come in Philadelphia. He was traded to the St. Louis Rams in 2015 in a trade involving Sam Bradford. As a member of the Rams, he played 11 games, where he went 190 of 337 for 2,052 yards, along with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
After one season with the Rams, he was then released and found a home with former Eagles head coach Andy Reid in Kansas City, where he played in just three games in 2016. As a member of the Chiefs, he went 36 of 55 for 410 yards along with three touchdowns.
He appeared in seven games, including the entire Eagles playoff run without Wentz, going 57 of 101 for 537 yards. He also had five touchdowns and two interceptions.
