Nick Foles completed 3-of-5 passes for 69 yards in the Rams' preseason opener.
Foles' biggest play of the night came on a screen pass to Tavon Austin, but he characteristically took a couple shots down the field as well. Foles was sacked on back to back plays on his second drive, though one of the plays was negated by penalties. Foles has traditionally struggled under pressure throughout his career, which could be an issue behind the Rams' unproven offensive line. Aug 14 - 11:55 PM

Nick Foles' extension with the Rams included $6.75M fully guaranteed in 2016.

It's a lot of risk for the Rams given the situation. Foles is going from Chip Kelly to Frank Cignetti, from an elite offensive line to one of the worst, from the softest defensive division to the toughest and from Jeremy Maclin/Jordan Matthews/Zach Ertz to Brian Quick/Kenny Britt/Jared Cook. There's certainly a chance Foles faceplants and makes the Rams look silly for guaranteeing him all that 2016 money.

Rams signed QB Nick Foles to a two-year, $24.5 million extension through 2017.

The deal contains just under $14 million guaranteed. Foles has yet to prove himself outside of Chip Kelly's system, but the Rams didn't want to risk letting him play out his contract year and potentially becoming overpriced next offseason. The new deal locks up Foles through his age-28 campaign, so he'll be eligible for free agency in 2018 at age 29. From that standpoint, it's a particularly good deal for Foles. Foles is an upgrade to the Rams' passing attack from Austin Davis and Shaun Hill, but will be asked to manage games in Jeff Fisher's conservative offense. We don't see him becoming a fantasy asset in St. Louis anytime soon.
Aug 7 - 8:25 PM

ESPN reports the Rams have had "continued dialogue" with contract-year QB Nick Foles about an extension.

Per reported Nick Wagoner, "nothing appears imminent," but GM Les Snead believes a deal is possible before the end of the season. Translation, talks won't be cut off after Week 1. Locking up Foles now would be a "buy low" on a player who could end up staying low.

ESPN’s Nick Wagoner expects the Rams to offer Nick Foles $12-14 million per season on a four-year extension, with $20 million in guarantees.

That would make Foles the 18th highest paid quarterback in the league in average annual value. The Rams want to buy low on Foles and could structure his extension as a year-to-year deal with upfront guaranteed money. Foles is a candidate to be locked up prior to Week 1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams and contract-year QB Nick Foles have had "initial talks" about a long-term deal.

Per RapSheet, the "target" date for an extension is ahead of Week 1. We're not sure why the Rams would want to do a long-term deal with Foles before he's even played a down for the team and is coming off a shoulder injury, but maybe they see a buy-low window here. That's if they believe Foles' 2013 season wasn't an aberration. (It was.) He's going to be a game manager-type for the Rams.
Jun 15 - 7:41 PM

Rams acquired QB Nick Foles, a 2015 fourth-round pick, and a 2016 second-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for QB Sam Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round pick.

Chip Kelly inherited Foles, an immobile quarterback who showed some serious flaws before getting hurt last season. Now he gets an upgrade in Bradford, who has a massive contract (that's up after this season) and has been unable to stay healthy. It may not prevent Kelly from trying to go up and get Marcus Mariota in the draft, but it certainly takes just about all of the urgency off. Bradford projects as a clear-cut fantasy QB1 while operating Kelly's fastbreak offense. Foles, with questionable weapons and a brutal offensive line in St. Louis, is trending down.

A source tells NJ.com the Rams, Titans and Texans showed interest in trading for Nick Foles during the Senior Bowl in January.

The Eagles reportedly "made an effort to gauge the value of Foles with other teams in the league" in January. The notion that they're looking to trade him has only gained steam since then, especially after Mark Sanchez was given "bridge" quarterback kind of money Monday. If Chip Kelly can't get his man in Marcus Mariota, it's possible he settles for UCLA's Brett Hundley or Baylor's Bryce Petty in the draft. Foles' status remains completely up in the air.

The Philly Inquirer believes Nick Foles could be the "odd man out" after the Eagles' re-signing of Mark Sanchez.

Beat writer Jeff McLane says Foles could "net a high draft pick" in trade talks, and continues to believe the Eagles will target a trade up for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota in the draft. In an extremely quarterback-needy NFL, Foles could probably fetch a second-round pick. Sanchez's two-year, $9 million contract is at the high end of backup quarterback money, and a sensible sum if the Eagles are going to view him as a "bridge" to a rookie.
Mar 8 - 7:49 PM

NJ.com calls the Eagles' denial of a 2013 Josh Gordon-for-Nick Foles trade "one of the first real signs of support the team has shown for Foles since (Chip) Kelly arrived."

The Eagles turned down the trade following 2013 training camp, when Foles lost a camp battle to Michael Vick and Gordon was facing a two-game suspension. Gordon would go on to lead the league in receiving while playing 14 games. Even if Gordon's off-field issues scared the Eagles off, it's still a vote of confidence in Foles -- a player Kelly inherited and isn't a classic fit for his offense. The Marcus Mariota rumors won't stop until draft day comes and goes, but perhaps Kelly is higher on Foles than we thought.

Nick Foles said he expects to be the Eagles' starting quarterback in 2015.

"My expectation is to be out there and be the starting guy," he said. "I know there’s been a lot of things said, but the only thing I’m worried about is making myself the best player, the best person to help lead my team." Foles' status is still up in the air. He could conceivably be traded, benched or retained as starter. Foles is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

Asked if he expects to return as the Eagles' starter in 2015, Nick Foles responded "(I plan on) being in Philly."

"I only listen to the people at the (Eagles') facility," Foles said. "(Coach/GM Chip Kelly is) the one that will make the decision." It's certainly notable that Foles wasn't unequivocal when asked if he'll be starting. Heading into the final year of his rookie contract, things are completely up in the air for Foles. He could be traded, benched or retain his starting job.
Jan 29 - 1:32 PM

A source tells NJ.com that the Rams have interest in Nick Foles if the Eagles decide to trade him this offseason.

Foles is 14-4 as a starter over the last two seasons, but there's plenty of reason to believe he is not Chip Kelly's guy for the long haul. Kelly inherited Foles, he prefers a mobile quarterback, Foles regressed sharply as a thrower in Year 2 and the Eagles could be plotting a move up in the draft for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. According to NJ.com, the QB-desperate Titans and Texans would also have interest in Foles, who has one year remaining on his rookie contract. The Rams have already said Sam Bradford (ACL surgery) will face competition in training camp.

Speaking Wednesday, coach Chip Kelly declined to give Nick Foles a full endorsement.

Kelly said he'll go through a long evaluation process on all his players, including Foles. He's not going to name him his starter even though Foles is 14-4 over his last 18 starts under Kelly. That's because he was shaky this season, turning the ball over 13 times in just over seven games and completing 59.8 percent of his passes. The problem for the Eagles is that they're unlikely to find serious competition for Foles unless they mortgage their future to move up in the draft for Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston. Foles, heading into the final year of his rookie contract, is the heavy favorite to open 2015 as the Eagles' starting quarterback.

Nick Foles (collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Coach Chip Kelly has already said that Mark Sanchez will remain under center against the Giants, and that the team won't be turning to Matt Barkley. It means Foles closes the book on 2014 having played zero snaps after November 2, and the owner of a 13:10 TD:INT ratio and 81.4 QB rating through eight starts. Foles will enter the offseason as the favorite for 2015 duties, but the Eagles will undoubtedly search for alternatives. It's just a matter of if they can find a better option.
