It has now been over a year since Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl victory. Despite a very similar situation this season with Carson Wentz getting injured and Foles leading them to playoffs against the odds, they failed to beat the No. 1 seed New Orleans Saints in the Divisional round, and Wentz was once again confirmed as starter in the offseason. Foles has been very humble throughout his career, even agreeing to sit on the bench the year following his Super Bowl MVP game, but this offseason he has bought his freedom from the Eagles, and barring a $25 million franchise tag from Philadelphia, he can sign with any team that sends an offer his way. If he does receive the tag, the Eagles would likely trade him over starting him, with Carson Wentz eager to take ownership of the team that drafted him. Foles hasn’t played a consistent regular season since 2013, raising questions of whether his talent is limited solely to December-February. That being said, what team doesn’t want a quarterback with a 98.8 passer rating in the playoffs?
The Redskins season was plagued by injury from the start, as they had to place their rookie running back Darrius Guice on IR before the season began. With the addition of Adrian Peterson, they were able to take the lead in the NFC East until, not one, but two of their quarterbacks broke their legs. The team quickly dropped out of playoff contention, finishing third in the division at 7-9. Foles would have plenty of surrounding talent, with the return of Darius Guice, and offensive weapons such as Josh Doctson, Vernon Davis, and Jordan Reed.
Bonus: He would get to play the Eagles twice a year.
Well, if this season established anything for the Jaguars, it is that Blake Bortles is not who they need to make another playoff run. The defense held up this season following their close loss in last years AFC Championship, but Bortles finally gave out. To be fair, they lost a lot of their offensive talent in the offseason including Allen Hurns to the Dallas Cowboys and Allen Robinson to the Chicago Bears, but though five years in the league he has disappointed. Blake Bortles would make a great veteran back-up for Foles.
The Broncos acquired Case Keenum in the 2018 offseason. He had a good year in Minnesota in 2017 and led them the the NFC Championship where they got blown out 38-7… by Nick Foles. This year he finished the season with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. The Broncos have the tenth pick in the 2019 draft, putting them in range to possibly draft a quarterback, but by picking up Foles they could save the pick to use for their 22nd ranked defense.
