Foles voiding 2019 option in Eagles contract

Foles voiding 2019 option in Eagles contract

Well, Foles did not seem to interested in this plan, as NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has reported that Foles will be buying back his freedom from the Eagles for $2 million, and will become a free agent--unless.

Nick Foles is heading for free agency.

He is expected to do this if needed, which in turn would see the Eagles use their franchise tag on Foles, giving them time to trade him to another team. ESPN's Darren Woodson claimed last week that Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was "on the table" as Philadelphia's potential return in a Foles trade.

As expected, Nick Foles is voiding a contract option exercised by the Philadelphia Eagles, per reports Tuesday.

As stated in the past, I don't think the Jags should get involved in the Foles sweepstakes because of his tenures outside of Philly. The team has the seventh (first round), 38th (second round), 69th (third round) and 95th (third round) picks in the 2019 draft, all of which would come before any compensatory pick. Essentially, the Eagles are making sure they don't lose a player like Foles for nothing, since his value as a Super Bowl-winning quarterback is pretty high. Heading into 2019, Foles had an option for an extra year at $20 million.

D.C. United's Wayne Rooney thinks he still has Premier League quality
Only versus Arsenal (5) and Charlton (4) has Ranieri lost four consecutive Premier League games versus a single opponent. He got the players backing him straight away. " Manchester United's mentality has changed".

Even more so than picking up a mid-round pick for the backup quarterback, franchising Foles would enable the Eagles to trade him outside of the NFC East. The Eagles needed to wait until the Super Bowl was over to make the move official.

Wentz was described as "egotistical", "selfish" and "uncompromising" in the story, which cited more than a half-dozen players and other sources, all of whom were quoted anonymously.

Wentz said he was caught off guard by the report.

"If there were guys that had issues, in hindsight, I wish we could have just talked about them", Wentz said.
