Mark Sanchez is soon to be a free agent. He’ll likely garner some interest from other teams who will be willing to pay him more than the Eagles would (even if they still wanted him). That leaves a 2nd-string, just-in-case, fill-in-starter role to be filled. And if reports are to believed, that new Mark Sanchez may be the oft-injured Jake Locker.
According to NJ.com, the “informed-opinion of a long-time player agent” says that Chip Kelly is interested in snatching up Jake Locker when he enters free agency next month. Locker, who is the same age as Foles, has a career 57.5 completion percentage with 27 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. It might be just a filler signing, but we know at least one person seems to be excited about it.
