Report: Nick Foles likely to be traded this offseason Nick Foles expected to be highly coveted this offseason

Nick Foles expected to be highly coveted this offseason. Nick Foles has secured his legend in Eagles history and starting on Sunday, the Eagles Super Bowl MVP will begin the countdown to a huge payday from another franchise in the coming months.

The Jaguars no longer view Blake Bortles as a viable option, and they are exploring the idea of adding another recently demoted passer.

Jaguars brass has discussed the prospect of bringing in Joe Flacco via trade, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports. Flacco is open to this potential opportunity, per JLC.

They are also discussing Nick Foles and Ryan Tannehill, La Canfora notes. Foles is not certain to be available, though the current Eagles starter is expected to be. The Eagles are expected to attempt a trade, and the Dolphins are going to explore a Tannehill trade. Both could also hit free agency.

Nick Foles ties NFL record with 25 consecutive completions Nick Foles‘ 19th consecutive completion set a team record. His 25th tied the NFL record. The Eagles backup quarterback, though, threw an incompletion before beginning a new streak with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Nelson Agholor on the next play.

Joe Flacco is only 33 years old which is young in the new quarterback world where QBs are playing into The Ravens aren’t going to be able to trade him with his current cap number, but Nick Foles wasn’t that good early on in the season. Nick Foles from December onward is better than Tom Brady.

Nicholas Edward Foles (born January 20, 1989) is an American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL).

John Harbaugh has now openly broached the subject of a Flacco trade, saying the Ravens’ longtime starter will have a market. But rival general managers do not expect a team to part with anything more than a mid-round pick for the 33-year-old quarterback, La Canfora adds, though pointing out Tom Coughlin and new Ravens GM Eric DeCosta have a strong relationship that could accelerate a deal.

Flacco’s contract runs through 2021. He is due $18.5M in base salary next season and is set to carry a $26.5M cap number, though renegotiation could adjust the latter figure. The Jags are likely going to have to eat a $16.5M dead-money hit on Bortles. The team is projected to be over the cap, so a Flacco trade would need to be accompanied by roster adjustments elsewhere.

Brett Favre isn't so sure Eagles should stick with Carson Wentz over Nick Foles.
There are plenty of people who have a take when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles’ decision to stick with 2016 first-round draft pick Carson Wentz over veteran Nick Foles.
