Nick Foles: The future will take care of itself

Nick Foles has another year on his contract with the Eagles, but his future is (somewhat) in doubt. As Mike Florio wrote last week, the Eagles have options.

The best move for Philadelphia might be to hold onto Foles for another season as Carson Wentz‘s backup. The Eagles owe him another $4 million in salary and a $3 million roster bonus with a total cap charge of $7.6 million.

Foles appears content with whatever happens, including returning to a backup role.

“Absolutely. I’m grateful to be here, to be part of this organization,” Foles said Tuesday. “I can’t wait to play the game. After the game, that’s where you have time to sort of reflect on the year, and that’s what we’ll do. I’ll spend time with my family and use that family time. The future will take care of itself. I’m grateful to have signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and be here. I’m excited to watch Carson get healthy and get back on his feet and hopefully being part of him getting back to where he was.”

The Eagles could trade Foles, which would make his fourth team in four years.

“You know what? We’ll worry about that if that time comes,” Foles said of the possibility of Philadelphia trading him. “I’m just grateful to be in this position and be with this team.”

  1. There’s another QB playing in the game on Sunday? I wouldn’t have known with all the drooling over TB12’s every move.

  2. 52 points? lol

  3. Dude, if you and your Eagles best Brady/Belicheat/Patriots, then you can ride the “Blank Check” wagon with offers from any team. Eagles drafted Carson Wentz, so that is where the management’s head is. And winning the Super Bowl will put you way ahead of Kirk Cousins, who will likely be available for all of the other teams in need of a steady QB. I sure envy you, dude, either way. Best of luck this coming Sunday, dude!

  4. I think the fact that New England will score as many as 28 points which I predicted is also lol but I had to attach some losing number to them !

    You understand he’s not a free agent, right?

  6. Id put money he returns for a full year next year with philly. Roseman knows its important to have a competent back-up (especially when your young, sometimes reckless QB is returning from a major injury) thats why he paid him the above-average back-up QB money.

  7. Of course if someone came at the eagles with a trade as good as what they got for Sam Bradford he would 100% be traded, but I dont think that will happen. Either way hes got a lot to be proud of, and hopefully he caps off this season with a W.

  8. Nice analysis, Dude!

  9. Prediction: It will be his choice, to an extent. They’ll let him decide if he wants to come back next year, as the backup (with possible starter work in the first couple weeks if Wentz isn’t ready), or if he wants the chance to start somewhere

    If he wants to come back, they’ll be more than happy to have him. If he wants the chance to start, they’ll give it to him, but they’ll give him the chance that brings the most back. They aren’t going to trade him to a playoff team for a 3rd round pick, if a non playoff team is offering a 2nd

  10. Trade him. He likely plays just at average level. As for Wentz, he surely will not get injured two years in a row. If he does, then I am going to make him an honorary sixer.

  11. I mean Bradford got you a 1st and 4th imagine what a super bowl winner could get you if he wins! If not he would still be a playoff experience veteran who plays well in the post season… can’t say the same of over half the starters in the league… I think they will keep him unless Wentz looks like he will be ready for week 1 and they get an offer they can’t refuse. So many stupid GM’s in this league, one might pay a king’s ransom for an above average starter with super bowl experience.

    How about Eagles 38 vikings 7? It just sounds nice. I thought you Viking fans would stop the trolling after your team took that beat down. But nope, you’re still here on every article. Your team can get their payback next year when they go out to Philly again but I’m sure they’ll just end up losing to the eagles for the 3rd year in a row.

    Do you know terripet?

    I think the Patriots part is accurate. It’s going to be a close game either way.

  14. More to the point, LCL and ACL woes might easily see a player struggle his first season back, and Wentz had both injuries at the same time, so it would be foolish to trade Foles until Wentz has a few games under his belt looking his old self again. And no need to force the pace of that switch-over.

  15. One wonders if Philly wins if the writers will return them to number one in the Power Rankings and if Nick will get some respect?
