Jerry Jones Says Nick Foles “Isn’t An Option” For Cowboys

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters on Friday that free agent QB Nick Folesisn’t an option” for them as a backup quarterback, per Jon Machota.

This is obviously great news for Kellen Moore and rookie Dak Prescott.

Recent reports have said that the Cowboys were among the team’s to watch for Foles, along with the Bills and Vikings. However, others have denied the Bills’ reported interest.

Last night, Darren Wolfson reported that there are 10 or so teams, including the Vikings doing their due diligence on Foles. Although, Wolfson added that Foles isn’t close to signing with a new team and plans to lay low for a few days.

The Rams wound up cutting Foles loose on Wednesday after he reportedly requested to be released.

Foles, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. After three years in Philadelphia, Foles was sent to the Rams in a trade from the Eagles that shipped Sam Bradford to Philadelphia. He had one year remaining on his rookie contract when the Rams signed him to a two-year, $24 million extension back in August of last year.

In 2015, Foles completed 56.4 percent of his passes for 2,052 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 36 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
