- February 03, 2019

While the Eagles picking up that option would keep Foles under contract for another year, it does not completely restrict Foles from testing free agency, as he can void the option year by returning the $2 million bonus to the team. The backup QB has starred in Wentz's absence the past two seasons, including their Super Bowl championship run previous year. "That opens up the door for the Eagles possibly franchise-tagging him and then trading him", Rapoport said on Saturday. (more...)
