Eagles expected to exercise Foles' $20M option to facilitate trade

Posted February 04, 2019

According to Rapoport, the Eagles will pick up Foles' $20 million option heading into 2019. The story also indicates that the Eagles will exercise the $20 million option in Foles' contract. Unless the Eagles guarantee that Foles will get an opportunity to win over the starting position in training camp and the preseason, then there's a good chance that he will not be in midnight green playing for the Eagles next season. The price is expected to be a third-round pick, as Schefter added teams have already inquired about a deal for the Super Bowl LII MVP. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Saturday that the franchise tag is expected for Foles and that other teams have contacted the Eagles about his potential availability. If he does so, the Eagles would then place their franchise tag on the quarterback and have the ability to trade him.
