You’ve seen the news by now, but what happens next? The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles are expected to pick up the $20M option on Nick Foles’ contract. It could mean a significant move is in the works, or it could mean Foles still walks with only a compensatory pick in return.
On The Kist & Solak Show #75 we break down what it all means, including the timing of the report. It comes over a week before the deadline and once it’s official Foles has five days to remain under that contract or opt-out for $2M. Until then, we’re only left to speculate.
If Foles and the Eagles have worked out a trade that works for both parties, who do we believe is their dance partner? We detail some potential landing spots, including the Miami Dolphins, Cincinnati Bengals, and Jacksonville Jaguars.
After the show went live more news dropped, stating that the Eagles would think long and hard about tagging Foles.
Foles is expected to buy back his freedom for $2M. ... The #Eagles are strongly considering franchise tagging him to trade him. And he’ll sign immediately. If Foles doesn’t get tagged, Philly just grabs his $2M and banks on a comp pick. https://t.co/Rbrb4suqWh— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 2, 2019
