Eagles 2019

There is a report from Ian Rappaport saying the Eagles are expected to pick up the 20 million dollar option on Nick Foles.

This is my take on the subject.......He will excercise his option to buy out for 2 million. It looks like a chess game is taking place so the Eagles can get some form of compensation for him. Stay tuned.

this is a mutually agreeable chess game.
and if nothing materializes out of it before his 2 mill buyback date ,he will option his buyout.

nick has 20mill reasons to play along
if the eagles can trade him to an agreeable destination hes guaranteed his 20mill wherever and can negotiate a long term deal.
but I don't think there will be earthshattering trade deal
maybe a good player or a low 3rd round or high 2nd round pick

I also believe Nick is a willing participant in this deal.
EAGLES don't have cap space to play and lose.
Having to pay Nick 20 mil to sit would severely tie their hands with free agency.
Only way Nick won't be dealt is if the EAGLES have a indication Wentz will not be ready till mid season or later.

So, itís playing out the way everybody said it would. Foles has opted for the 2 million dollar buyout and that voids the Eagles 20 million dollar option. The Eagles will now put the franchise tag on Foles and trade him.

Sports radio said he is going to end up in Jacksonville

The guy hasn't even been traded you and ESPN predicts the Jaguars will miss the playoffs this year under Floes.......he gets no respect.

The Jags receivers are nothing to write home about about but their quarterbacks have been terrible. Maybe with Foles tossing them the ball their game will be elevated. One thing Iíve learned in life is this......ĒYou canít make chicken salad out of chicken crap.Ē

Football is the ultimate team game. Every player needs to be on the same page for the plays to work. Give Foles a good offensive line, a good running game, good wideouts and a good tight end and I predict heíll be a good QB in Jacksonville.

If all of the above is chicken crap.....guess what theyíll get?


I said before, Foles is the Rodney Dangerfield of NFL quarterbacks. Foles won a Super Bowl as a three time underdog. Then there was this year. What do they need to see to respect him?

The Daily News today says if they use the franchise tag it's around 25 mil. Yikes.

9 " you want Philly Philly? "

Doug " yeah, let's do it. "

Whats a good starting QB worth these days?
Most likely the most the EAGLES will get for Nick is a 3rd round pick.
Reunited with his old coordinator as the head coach it could be a good fit for the Panthers and buy a couple years to develop a good draft pick QB for down the line.

I know 25 million sounds like a crazy number but consider this....

Jimmy Garapolo will make over 61 million for the 2018-2019 seasons

Matt Stafford earned 26.5 million for 2018

Derek Carr earned 25 million for 2018

Kirk Cousins earned 24 million for 2018

Andrew Luck earned 24 million for 2018

What do they all have in common besides the fact they are all millionaires? None have won a super bowl. Heck, Garapolo never played a full nfl season!
