Nick Foles is glad to be out of Philadelphia.

Foles, the former Eagles quarterback who was traded to the Rams for Sam Bradford and draft picks yesterday, apparently wanted to leave. Sal Paolantonio of ESPN said on 97.5 The Fanatic that a Foles relative described Foles as ecstatic to no longer be an Eagle.

I just talked to a member of Nick Foless family. He is absolutely pumped, overjoyed hes out of Philly, Paolantonio said.

There had been no previous reports of Foles clashing with coach Chip Kelly, but its become clear recently that Kelly wasnt satisfied with any of his top offensive skill position players. Foles, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin are all leaving the team this week.

In St. Louis, Foles is going to a place where hes expected to be the starter. After enduring months of speculation that hed be replaced in Philadelphia by Marcus Mariota, its easy to see why Foles would be happier as the man in St. Louis.
