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?


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?
