New Rams QB Nick Foles mentions that he had no idea he was being traded to St. Louis until he received the call from HC Chip Kelly.
“The second I got a phone call, and Chip Kelly told me I was traded. That was the first time,” Foles told Jenny Vrentas of MMQB.com.
“The biggest thing you deal with in that time period is a lot of emotions,” Foles said. “On one end, you’re cutting ties with the team you have been a part of since you were a rookie—and that’s all you knew, and your plan was to be back there. On the other end, there’s a great opportunity with a new team that wants you, a team that really wanted to get you. You deal with those emotions in the first 24 hours.”
