Report: Eagles Expected to Pick Up Nick Foles’ $20 Million Option

I had to get off the treadmill to write this one. I’ve been putting in some work lately because someone called me “chubby” the other day in the comments section and I was rattled by it.

Anyway, there has been some speculation in recent days that the Eagles are considering simply letting Nick Foles walk into free agency unobstructed by failing to pick up the team’s 2019 option. According to Ian Rapoport, that’s not going to happen:

The move does not mean that Foles will play for the Eagles next season. In fact, that outcome remains very unlikely. Rapoport notes that Foles is expected to pay the Eagles $2 million to temporarily buy his way into free agency, but it remains to be seen if the team will attempt to franchise tag the Super Bowl 52 MVP in order to ultimately work out a trade. There’s still quite a bit to sort out.

At the very least, the move signals the Eagles don’t simply plan to let Foles walk away without any compensation.

Update:

Personally, I hope he gets what he wants out of this process in the long run, unless, of course, he wants to play with the Giants or Redskins. I’m totally out on that.

OK. Back to the treadmill.

      Ride out with BDN…..Carson will forever be injury plagued. Plus the cystic acne he’s getting from the stress of watching Foles ball out on the field.
      Then you have the reports that he’s a salty individual where it’s his way or the highway. Nah, Foles behind center next season baby

    Hopefully this doesn’t get messy. The eagles trade him to a place Foles wants to go, Birds get a good haul.

    Why would they risk $20 million for a third round pick? Don’t they get a third rounder as comp if he walks? Are they really that worried that he could go to the skins?
