Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Eagles have reached an agreement with QB Nick Foles on a revised contract.
The deal includes a mutual option for 2019, so it's possible Foles could still hit the market as a free agent next offseason. He'll also receive a $2 million signing bonus. The Eagles are sweetening Foles' deal as a way of repaying him for leading the team to its first Super Bowl last year. He'll be back as Carson Wentz's backup in 2018. Apr 20 - 4:27 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson believes it's "safe to say" the team is keeping Nick Foles for 2018.

With Carson Wentz rehabbing a torn ACL, the Eagles set a high price for Foles. It appears no one came close to matching it. In some ways it's a waste — Foles will never have more trade value — but it ultimately makes sense. Teams are not going to overpay for 3-4 starts, while the Eagles have incentive to keep Foles as Wentz insurance.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the team hasn't fielded any serious offers for Nick Foles.

"It had to be the right deal for us to do that," said Pederson during an appearance on NFL Network. "But there wasn't anything coming down our way for Nick." ESPN's Chris Mortensen previously reported that the Eagles were seeking greater compensation for Foles than they did for Sam Bradford when he was traded for first and fourth-rounders in 2016. Unless they're a blown away by an offer, it appears the Eagles will stand pat with Foles as the No. 2 to Carson Wentz. The reigning Super Bowl MVP will earn a modest $4 million in 2018.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Eagles are seeking more than the first- and fourth-round picks they received for Sam Bradford in Nick Foles trade talks.

That's apparently been the Eagles' "basic answer" in talks. Per Mort, the Eagles are fielding inquiries, but have not "solicited" any. With Carson Wentz recovering from a torn ACL, the Eagles have incentive to be patient with their Super Bowl-winning backup, though his value should be at an all-time high before the draft before steadily declining thereafter. Getting a first-round pick probably isn't the most likely outcome.
Mar 5 - 1:31 PM

Geoff Mosher of FanRag Sports reports the Eagles have already been offered a second-round pick for Nick Foles.

That is almost certainly not enough to get a deal done, but it does confirm other teams are making inquiries about the Super Bowl MVP. MMQB's Peter King reported the Eagles are "confident" Carson Wentz will be ready for Week 1, opening the door for them to trade Foles, but he added they value Foles more highly than Sam Bradford, who fetched a first and a fourth prior to the 2016 season. If this mystery team really wants Foles, they will need to up their offer.

Nick Foles earned game MVP as the Eagles upset the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52.

Foles built on his stunning NFC title game by staying in attack mode on downfield throws, scoring the Eagles’ first touchdown on a 34-yard first-quarter bomb to Alshon Jeffery and threading a needle to Corey Clement in the third quarter from 22 yards out. Foles also caught a touchdown on a fourth-and-goal trick-play pass from Trey Burton, and threw his third TD to Zach Ertz from 11 yards out in the fourth quarter, which proved the game winner. Foles inherited the Eagles’ quarterback job after Carson Wentz’s ACL tear and engineered a 5-1 finish. In a quarterback-needy NFL, the Eagles may receive offseason trade inquiries for Foles, who is due $7 million in salary and bonuses for 2018. Ideally, Philly would keep Foles as insurance for Wentz’s knee.
Feb 4 - 10:24 PM

Nick Foles underwent "precautionary" X-rays on his ribs following Sunday's NFC Championship game win.

Per ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, Foles' injury "doesn't appear serious," and the X-rays truly appear precautionary. Foles likely experienced routine soreness following Sunday's stunning blowout, although it wasn't for a lack of pass protection. The Eagles held the Vikings' vaunted pass rush to just five QB hits and one sack in the 38-7 rout. "I'm good, I'm good," Foles assured after the tests.
Jan 21 - 10:29 PM

Nick Foles completed 26-of-33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' shocking, 38-7 blowout win over the Vikings in Sunday's NFC Championship game.

Foles went just 2-of-15 on throws attempted 20-plus yards downfield this season. He completed four 20-plus-yard throws in Sunday’s game alone, beginning with a 53-yard touchdown to a wide-open Alshon Jeffery in the second quarter and capped by a 41-yard flea-flicker score to Torrey Smith in the third frame. Foles’ third TD went to Jeffery in the red zone early in the fourth. It was a stunning air-raid performance against the NFC’s premier pass defense. The Eagles will likely need something similar from Foles – in addition to defensive dominance – in order to upset the Patriots in the Super Bowl. New England is expected to open as a five- to six-point favorite.
Jan 21 - 9:41 PM

Nick Foles completed 23-of-30 passes for 246 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Eagles' 15-10, Divisional Round win over the Falcons.

Foles' numbers don't stand out, but he turned in a gutsy effort after he and the entire Eagles offense got off to the worst possible start. Foles was airmailing simple throws while his running backs couldn't stop fumbling. Riding run/pass option plays, Foles slowly got in rhythm as the Eagles consistently moved the chains in the second half. The Eagles figure to be underdogs against either the Vikings or Saints in the NFC Championship Game, but appear to have moved past their awful post-Carson Wentz football from December.
Jan 13 - 7:46 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said, "My guy is Nick Foles, end of story."

Pederson made some waves when he left open the door to benching Foles in the playoffs, saying, "If you're in desperation mode, who knows?" Pederson quickly clarified himself after the press conference, however, and will almost certainly ride or die with Foles in the postseason. Nate Sudfeld is the only other quarterback on the roster.
Jan 2 - 1:06 PM

Nick Foles completed 4-of-7 passes for 39 yards and an interception in Week 17 against Dallas.

Foles only played a few series with the Eagles locked into a first-round bye. His interception came trying to force a pass to Alshon Jeffery. Foles has looked shaky his last two starts and is a weak point going into the playoffs. The Eagles will likely go with a run-heavy gamescript in the Divisional Round.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 01:50:00 PM

The Eagles plan to play Nick Foles 3-4 series in Week 17 against Dallas.

Foles will start, but the Eagles are just getting him some extra reps coming off a shaky Week 16. Nate Sudfeld is expected to play the majority of Sunday's snaps.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 10:54:00 AM

Coach Doug Pederson said Eagles starters will play Week 17 against the Cowboys, but "at the same time be smart with how much they play."

"The idea is to just keep the starters going," Pederson explained. "I don't want to not play them, and then it's three weeks later and you're playing a game. I think that would be foolish on my part, so I want to make sure that they stay in the moment, but at the same time be smart with how much they play, how long they play, and go from there." Maybe Foles and Co. will play the first half before giving way to the backups. None of these guys are attractive fantasy plays.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 12:22:00 PM

Nick Foles said he is "preparing to start" Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Foles added he is taking the first-team reps and "preparing to play the whole game." It seems unlikely that happens after coach Doug Pederson hinted the Eagles will treat Sunday almost like a preseason game, but Foles could certainly use the reps. Nate Sudfeld is the only other quarterback on Philly's roster.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 12:33:00 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson was noncommittal about Nick Foles playing Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Pederson said he wants to get Foles "as many reps" as possible, but added the team will "be smart" about his playing time. The comments suggest Philly will treat Sunday's game like a preseason contest, with Foles playing a few series before heading to the bench. Coming off a bad performance and unlikely to play a full complement of snaps, Foles will not be a fantasy option this week.
