Foles is due to make about $7M of cash this year.

I think, based upon some of the recent mid level deals, he should get guaranteed salary and signing bonus of at least $20M for a short term deal of three years or so.

How can he turn that opportunity down?

It is an opportunity this year that will only happen via trade. Maybe because that limits his options, maybe Nick is OK with hanging in here for a year and take a 13M hit for one year in the hopes of gaining some of it back as a completely free agent.

However, even though he will get more if he waits a year, he won't make up for the 13M that I can see. I think his career earnings takes a hit if he stays. Not a 13M hit, but probably at least $5M.

But he likes it here and does not seem to be a chase the money type guy.

But still, $5M or more, what would you do? What will he want? What should he do?

He is young enough to be a starter for someone for at least several years.

The opportunity to go back to Arizona where he was college QB and closer to home has to be attractive in addition to the big payday.

Others have suggested that he'll just get low-end starter money, more like $15mil.

I seriously doubt he'll be in Philly next year.

I agree that he does not seem the type to need max $.

It's always about the money and Nick will do what he has to do. And don't kid yourself, he wants to start. He's a competitor just like everybody else in the NFL. I'm sorry but Nick has to be traded. As much as I love the guy this is the NFL, not high school. He'll always be a legend with the love that goes with it in Philly but the team comes first. The plan was for Nick to go next year and have Sudfeld back up Wentz and I think that we have to stick with that unless the Birds just don't want to take a chance with Wentz's knee. I'm sure the Eagles will accommodate him as much as they can but football is football and it's not always hunky dory.

But if they aren't sure about Wentz' knee , they shouldn't trade him until they are, right?

That may make the decision point a lot later in the offseason, and if so, that should mean that the offers won't be as favorable, thus decreasing our desire to trade him.

In any event, I can't see us pulling the trigger before training camp begins.

Doesn't it depend who's available and at what price? Can you imagine an aged QB who is capable of starting and winning 4-5 games looking at the Eagles as a team where he can chase a ring?

And then there's this:
QUOTE
Adam Schefter

@AdamSchefter
Bill Polian said on ESPN’s NFL Live that, if he were the Eagles’ GM, he wouldn’t listen to any offers for Nick Foles unless they started with “two 1’s and two 2’s.”

2:01 PM - Feb 19, 2018
On the heels of someone else suggesting two 1's. I don't think a team will be willing to give up that much, but I also think it's possible that we're undervaluing his worth. We've had a front row seat to seeing that all personnel people don't always make the best decisions. The main reason any team will add a player is to help them win games and eventually the Super Bowl. Nick Foles not only just did that, he beat the guy that every GM has wet dreams over while he was having maybe his best game.

Sure, people will argue that he had a couple of real stinkers at the end of the season, and he did. But it could also be argued that he was coming off of a TC injury, was rusty and that it took a couple of games for the other players and coaches to adjust to him while he was finding his rhythm.

It's not always the product that people buy, it's very often how it is sold --- and Howie can sell!

As a footnote, Foles says Brady still hasn't called him and congratulated him.

Well in that case I think that Howie should call Bill Polian and tell him that he has a deal!

And yes Mike I do agree that the Eagles will have to wait a while unless they have somebody blow them away with an offer. If that happens (and I think that's highly unlikely) then I'd consider rolling with Sudfeld until Carson is ready. I think Sudfeld is going to be a good one.

Polian is a goofball now. No one is going to offer 2 #1s...hell, they probably won't offer 1. A real offer will likely be a 2 and a later round. If a 1 is involved I imagine that the Eagles would need to include one of their picks.

At the end of the day Foles agent will have to push the Eagles to trade him if they don't do it themselves.

Now? The clown claims he had a first round grade on Brady back in 2000, but didn't draft him even once they got to the later rounds?

He's full of shit, as I've been saying for years. Anyone that could only muster 1 title with Peyton Manning in his prime has been out of it for a while.

Several teams consider themselves contenders but need a QB. It'll be interesting to see what kind of offers he gets.

He's one of the best GM's ever. He's also a windbag, but blaming Manning's notorious choking on him is a bit much. When your team wins 12+ games 7 years in a row, you've done your job as an exec.

What happened in the year Manning was out? That roster was shit with a couple of solid offensive skill position guys propped up by Manning. And Dwight Freeney.

They predictably shit the bed, went 2-14, everyone who could be fired was, Manning went to Denver, and the Colts drafted Luck. Even in failure, Polian still helped two franchises. I guess Kerry Collins's magic had worn off by then.

Mock Collins all you want but the guy was a solid nfl QB and led a non-Polian team to a SB appearance. Hardly a bum. The guy played for 18 years for Christ’s sake.

It was a joke - he had an excellent career, including leading Polian's expansion Panthers to a conference championship appearance. Clearly he was done by 2011 and Polian likely brought him due to familiarity and lack of availability. Blaming Collins for that 2-14 season is as ridiculous as blaming Polian.
