    Still the last qb to throw a td in the superbowl

    And included a no trade clause...

    If they’re going to try and trade him he might as well try and gain leverage.

    He's proven more than a lot of starting NFL QB's have and yet people still writing him off...
    Funny you mention that, because so many people have forgotten that Brady was injured early in the AFC Championship Game that year and Bledsoe came in and won the game for them. And then leading up to that Super Bowl there was the debate over which QB should start.

    Because he’s not a franchise QB, pretty simple. He is a very inconsistent backup. He has the ability to play really good or really bad. He’s not worth $20 mil/ year and/or a pick.

    $20 mil/year IS a big contract for a player like Foles. He is a career back who does best when he doesn’t need to be counted on for a full season. He’s has proven to be a great spot starter, no more.

    I know people seem confused and think that, but it isn't the case. It WAS a big contract a few years ago when manning was here, but there are a lot of QB's making around that dollar amount.

    There are 22 QB's in the league making above or right about $20M. The ones not making that much are basically all rookies and Andy Dalton.

    It would be unfortunate for the team that traded for him. Could you image trading a premium pick, AND handing a big contract to Foles? LOL

Right now they are $18 milion OVER the cap with foles $20m option. So if they want to keep him in order to trade him, they're going to have to cut other players.

    They simply don't have the money to make Foles work without sacrificing a lot.

    If their goal is to trade him he would be smart to use his buy out option. No use in wanting your future team losing picks

    Thanks for the info. I guess they could be working a deal to do first thing on day the league year begins? Or they will have to do a lot of work on contracts, a lot of them have heavy dead cap too.
    I have to spread around CPs ... thanks
