- According to Shorr-Parks, teams around the league are “intrigued” by Foles given the Eagles apparent indecision about what to do with him moving forward.
- Shorr-Parks adds that the Titans and Texans are also believed to have interest in Foles as well.
Interestingly enough, teams around the NFL appear to have a good deal of respect for Foles.
“Love him,” said one NFL coach of Foles. “Right now I would put him in the second or third tier of quarterbacks, but I think he is right on the cusp of being in the top tier at the position.”
It remains to be seen what the Eagles plans are for their quarterback position and Foles in particular. Recent reports had mentioned that Philadelphia was interested in possibly trading up for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, whom HC Chip Kelly coached a few years ago.
At this point in time, it’s hard to say if the Eagles have even started the process of putting together their draft plans, but I’m sure we’ll continue to hear even more about Mariota possibly landing in Philadelphia in the coming months.
The Rams have said that they would like to add some competition at quarterback for next season, even if they elect to keep former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford. There is, of course, still a chance that Bradford could be released given his large cap figure.
The Titans and Texans would be well served looking for upgrades at quarterback as well, even though they spent draft picks on quarterbacks last year.
Foles, 26, still has one more year remaining on his four-year, $2.769 million rookie contract, which includes a base salary of just $660,000 for the 2015 season.
In 2014, Foles was limited to appearing eight games after he sustained a fractured collarbone. He finished the year throwing for 2,163 yards while completing 59.8 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 quarterback out of 39 qualifying players.
We’ll have more on the Eagles and Foles’ availability as the news is available.
