Nick Foles makes $2 million buyout payment to Eagles

Quote:
PHILADELPHIA -- Nick Foles was quick to void his 2019 option year with the Philadelphia Eagles and is wasting no time ponying up $2 million as part of that buyout.

According to a source, the payment was being taken care of Wednesday, one day after Foles opted out.

The Eagles officially notified Foles that they were exercising the $20 million option in his contract Tuesday evening. Within minutes, Foles informed the team that he was voiding the option, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

According to the language in the contract, Foles had to pay $2 million to the Eagles via cashier's check by Feb. 16 -- the 25th day prior to the start of the new league year. But it already has been taken care of.

The $2 million from Foles will offer the Eagles cap relief in the form of salary credited or refunded in 2019.

The team still has the option of placing the franchise tag on Foles and intends to do so in an effort to then try to trade him, sources on other NFL teams who have been in touch with Philadelphia told Schefter.



so Foles will either be a free agent or have a high $$$ franchise tag that may actually be too high for the Eagles to trade him

It’s weird. They franchise him but it’s to work out a sign and trade deal.

I think if Foles actually signs the tag he can only play for the eagles.

What will they get? A third?

Everyone is speculating that he goes to Jacksonville because of the DeFillipo connection. Makes sense I suppose with them moving on from Bortles.

There aren't a lot of starting jobs open, so the Eagles may find it's a tough market. Miami, Jacksonville, Washington, maybe Cincinnati...

Jacksonville is probably the best fit.

Foles would also be a major upgrade in Denver.
Plus there's the small chance that one of these guys retires: Brady, Rivers, Brees, Roethlisberger, Manning.
Who knows what's going on in the mind of Chucky in Oakland in reference to Carr, and I don't believe that Rosen in Arizona is enough to not go after Foles if the option presents itself.

It's a bad QB market overall anyway.

Nick Foles hasn't played well outside of the Eagles and has really only played well in spot duty.
Teddy Bridgewater hasn't played in what...3 years?
Tyrod Taylor will be on his 3rd team in three years and is rarely healthy.

Those are the top FA QBs. Maybe you take a swing on a guy like Brett Hundley?

After those guys, you have Ryan Tannehill and Blake Bortles...both guys that will be released. Maybe Andy Dalton.

The draft kinda sucks too.

Look. I remember when Foles was playing for the St. Louis Rams, and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. He is an average QB that found an offensive scheme to fit his skillset. I don't expect that Nick Foles is going to lead another team, for an entire season, to a Super Bowl victory.

With Flacco having a trade agreement in place and looking at potential landing spots for Foles Jacksonville makes the most sense. I doubt the eagles want him going to the giants or redskins.

Where else would you look to unload him?

Also will Oakland trade Carr? I would bet the giants and redskins along with Jacksonville would look at carr as a much longer term solution. I just don’t see a lot of trade market for Foles maybe Oakland actually to serve as a 1 year bridge guy for whomever they draft if they unload Carr.

I've thought since mid-season that Carr to Jacksonville is a smart play. But his salary is fully guaranteed, so that's kind of a sticking point.

Also, if the Eagles try to tag and trade Foles, he's going to make life miserable for them.
