Philadelphia Eagles rework Nick Foles' contract

Adjust Comment Print

Nick Foles is going to be a Philadelphia Eagle in 2018, and perhaps longer, as the Eagles have restructured the Super Bowl MVP's contract for this upcoming season.

Despite the loss of their franchise quarterback, the Eagles managed to end the year as Super Bowl champions. Terms were not available, but reportedly Foles will receive a $2 million signing bonus.

The deal also includes a mutual 2019 option, which gives Foles the choice to enter free agency.

The Eagles obviously have a soft spot for Foles, and they should, after he was one of the main reasons the team went all the way in 2017.

As the off-season has progressed, trade options around the league have dwindled as quarterback-needy teams have looked elsewhere for veteran options at the position.

There's also no definitive proof that Philadelphia's starting quarterback Carson Wentz will be ready for week one of the National Football League season. Foles became the first player in National Football League history to throw a touchdown and catch a touchdown in a Super Bowl. The issue for the Eagles was the status of starting quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered torn knee ligaments in Week 14 last season, an injury which opened the door for Foles' heroics.
