Eagles expected to franchise tag Nick Foles, trade him for third-round pick

Quarterback Nick Foles is expected to be franchise tagged by the Eagles in efforts to trade him, per NFL Insider Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Reports were saying the Eagles are expected to pick up Foles’ $20 million option, but instead, the Eagles are now expected to franchise tag him (and trade him) in fear he will buy his freedom for just $2 million.

“The Eagles refused to specify any of their plans for Foles. But being that other teams already have inquired on Foles’ price, and it is expected to be around a third-round pick, the way for Philadelphia to secure the quarterback’s rights this offseason would be with a franchise tag,” stated Schefter in his report.

This season, the 30-year-old quarterback threw for 1,413 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions (in five regular-season games) while filling in for Carson Wentz.

Best of luck, Nick Foles.
