Nick Foles, the Philadelphia Eagles MVP Super Bowl winning quarterback will offer the Eagles front office with a unique situation during the upcoming off-season. Do they trade him while his stock is through the roof? Or do they retain him for the upcoming season?
The important bit of fact is that Foles is indeed signed through the 2018-19 season. However, the Eagles are without their second and third round picks in the upcoming draft.
This is where things can get a little tricky and we have to remember that the NFL is a business.
For instance if an interested team calls with an offer they couldn’t pass up and Foles wants another starting shot in the league, which clearly is deserved, all works out well. But what if Nick is comfortable with where things are at in his life and would prefer to remain as Carson Wentz backup, now what do you do?
Do you allow the first quarterback in franchise history to win the Super Bowl to ultimately make that decision? After all if there is one thing the front office truly learned is having a reliable backup is imperative.
If there is one thing we’ve learned about Nick Foles since being drafted in the third round (88th overall) in the 2012 by the Eagles, he likes to stay close to home.
And for good reason. He has always performed well donning the Midnight Green.
