Nick Foles Informs Eagles He Will Buy His Way Into Free Agency

08 Февраля 2019

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday on Super Bowl LIVE that the Eagles are expected to pick up his 2019 contract option for $20 million.

Even more so than picking up a mid-round pick for the backup quarterback, franchising Foles would enable the Eagles to trade him outside of the NFC East.

Foles must sign the tag for the Eagles to trade him. That said, with Foles now temporarily a free agent it shouldn't be long before we find out if the Eagles were bluffing about using the $25 million franchise tag on him. Foles opted to do that so he could become a free agent. The price for Foles is expected to be around a third-round pick, according to Schefter.

But this is expected to lead to Foles buying himself out of the contract for $2m.

However, just because the team has chose to exercise the 2019 option, it doesn't mean that Foles will ultimately end up on the team.

Foles could also refuse to sign the offer of the tag, as Le'Veon Bell did in 2018 with the Steelers, creating a major headache for the Eagles.

On Sunday, for the first time since that report surfaced, Wentz addressed the struggles of his 2018 campaign and acknowledged that, at times, he may have come across as a bit selfish. I think we all have selfishness inside of us.

The tag would be worth approximately $25 million on a one-year deal for Foles, but it would allow the Eagles to retain his rights as they seek a potential trading partner. He was the Eagles' quarterback coach a year ago when they won the Super Bowl.

As stated in the past, I don't think the Jags should get involved in the Foles sweepstakes because of his tenures outside of Philly.

Wentz said he would learn from that report. But that doesn't make sense considering the team has stood by Carson Wentz after injuries forced him to miss time this season.
