When is the last time Foles played a full season?


25 Million for a back up QB is steep. also for a 3rd round draft pick. However it is good money if it keeps him out of the NFC and even more so if it keeps him out of the NFC east.


I think the tag if given to him would be the organization helping him get a good deal where ever he ends up. Right now we know his asking price is at least 22 Million. With the tag it goes to at least 25 million. This is a thank you and a good business decision by the Eagles. Waugh!

Foles never played a full season due to injury and a bad head coach. If those guys are worth 25 million or more, Foles is worth 25 million.

The EAGLES kind of put it to Nick by picking up his option instead of just franchise tagging him from the beginning. This would have avoided Foles buying out his option and saving him 2 million dollars. So they did right by paying him a mil. incentive he fell short of by being injured but took it back and got him for another million to trade him.

I see it as setting his base salary. Business is business. No one would mind seeing him in the playoffs but we don't want to see him twice a year. Waugh!

I havn't seen any confirmed reports of a franchise tag being applied
just lots of speculation and hearsay.

just keep in mind a franchise tag can be applied today and retracted tomorrow.
if the tag is applied it will be with foles knowledge.

both of these parties know how the business works
and I think all parties want to do right by eachother
despite what it looks like to outward observers

If they do tag Nick and no deals materialize the EAGLES are screwed for next season since they don't have the cap space to play a 25 million dollar game of chicken. They have to many other holes to plug.
Nobody can sign Nick anyhow till after March 13 so we will see what happens.
I would bet he ends up in Jacksonville and teams like the Redskins and Giants know the EAGLES will do anything....except pay Nick 25 Mil to ride the bench , to keep him from going to them.

I would like to see him go to Redskins, I know that is counterproductive, but I get a lot of their games on Atlantic Broadband along with Ravens games......and I like watching hhim play..

Itís appears there is a trade in place for Joe Flacco to go to Denver. Cross the Broncos off the list of potential Nick Foles suitors.
