Goodbye Chase Daniel?

The Eagles are bringing back quarterback Nick Foles, reports Adam Schefter.

This isn’t too surprising, the Eagles had shown some interest in bringing him back last year, but he ultimately signed with the Chiefs, who declined the second year on his option.

The Eagles announced that they had “agreed to terms” with Foles, meaning that he is technically not signed yet. Adam Caplan reports that Chase Daniel has asked for, and will be granted, his release. The Eagles have an estimated $5.5 million in cap space after restructuring Zach Ertz’s contract, and will save at least an additional $1M with a release of Daniel. Daniel is expected to redo his contract to facilitate a release.

Foles of course spent three years with the Eagles, starting 24 games and throwing 46 touchdowns, 27 of which came in his incredible 2013 season en route to Pro Bowl MVP honors. He was then traded for Sam Bradford in the 2015 offseason, and released by the Rams in the 2016 offseason.

Update: Mike Garafolo reports Foles’ contract is two years, $11 million, with $7 million guaranteed.
