Chiefs signed QB Nick Foles.
ESPN's Adam Schefter linked the Chiefs to Foles earlier Wednesday, and the two sides quickly struck a deal to reunite Foles with Andy Reid. In 2012, Foles was drafted by Reid's Eagles at No. 88 overall. He started six games for Reid that year, completing 60.8 percent of his passes with a 6:5 TD:INT ratio. Foles gives the Chiefs a quality No. 2 to Alex Smith. The Foles signing gives the Chiefs flexibility to carry only two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster if none of Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray, and Kevin Hogan steps up. Aug 4 - 12:55 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chiefs are a "sleeper" team to sign free agent Nick Foles.

This gives the Cowboys some competition. Andy Reid drafted Foles in the third round in Philadelphia, and the Chiefs never did replace Chase Daniel. Perhaps Aaron Murray, Kevin Hogan, and Tyler Bray aren't cutting it in camp.
Aug 3 - 9:16 PM

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones confirmed he's "had talks" with free agent Nick Foles.

Jones also said the Cowboys are exploring potential trades. With Kellen Moore going down with a fractured fibula on Tuesday, Dallas wants to get a new No. 2 quarterback in the building quickly so he has time to pick up the offense. Odds are heavily in Foles' favor, since he won't cost Dallas a draft pick.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Cowboys are one of a "handful of teams" interested in free agent Nick Foles, and he could sign as early as Wednesday.

The Cowboys are the only team with any concrete reports showing their interest. They could be bidding against themselves, as Foles' agent could have leaked this info to get his client signed sooner rather than later.
Aug 3 - 2:22 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cowboys are "considering" signing free agent Nick Foles, but will also explore the trade market for a backup quarterback.

Foles' agent also represents coach Jason Garrett, OC Scott Linehan, and Tony Romo, so he's done plenty of business with Dallas. It makes too much sense not to happen, but the Cowboys also want to poke around and see what else is available. Josh McCown and Mike Glennon were mentioned as potential trade options. Signing Foles just costs money, not trading away a draft pick.

49ers coach Chip Kelly said he is not interested in signing free agent QB Nick Foles.

"I’m a big fan of Nick, but right now our eggs are in Kap and Blaine’s basket," Kelly said, "and we’re going to see what those guys can do." Foles had his one good season as a starter with Kelly in Philadelphia, but the coach decided to trade him and some picks for Sam Bradford last offseason. The Cowboys, Bills, and Broncos have also said they are not interested. At this point, the Vikings may be Foles' only option.
Aug 1 - 12:53 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team is not considering free agent Nick Foles.

That's three teams—the Cowboys, Bills and Broncos—who have already turned him down. It's obviously not a great sign that the Cowboys prefer undrafted backup Kellen Moore over Foles. The Vikings could kick the tires on Foles now that backup Taylor Heinicke is out with a foot injury.
Jul 29 - 3:45 PM

ESPN 1500 Twin Cities' Patrick Reusse is "hearing" free agent Nick Foles has been promised a chance to compete for the starting job if he signs with the Vikings.

Yeah, no. Even if that's something that's being whispered to Foles' agent behind the scenes, it has no practical bearing on reality. Teddy Bridgewater isn't exactly an upper-echelon starter, but he's well established as being better than Foles. Few things generate more fanciful scenarios than backup-quality quarterbacks.
Jul 28 - 8:03 PM

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports the Bills are not interested in free agent QB Nick Foles.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole linked Foles with the Bills, Vikings, and Cowboys yesterday. The Bills are already out of the running, and Broncos coach Gary Kubiak confirmed his team will not pursue Foles either. Desperate for a viable backup, the Cowboys would make a lot of sense.
Jul 28 - 11:14 AM

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said the team is not interested in free agent QB Nick Foles.

The Broncos have serious questions at quarterback, with Mark Sanchez struggling to beat out seventh-round sophomore Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch well of the pace. Even so, they rightly have no interest in a quarterback who was benched for Case Keenum. Josh McCown would be a much better target for Denver.
Jul 28 - 9:33 AM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Bills, Vikings, and Cowboys are free agent Nick Foles' three likeliest destinations.

Cole also reports the Jets showed interest in Foles, which may have played a role in Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signing with New York. Dallas would make a lot of sense as a Foles landing spot. Kellen Moore was out of his depth as a 2015 spot starter, and fourth-round rookie Dak Prescott isn't ready to play in the NFL.

Rams released QB Nick Foles.

It's been a move long in the making. After trading Sam Bradford and swapping a few draft picks with the Eagles to acquire Foles last offseason, the Rams then handed Foles a two-year, $24.5 million extension only to see him start 11 games and get benched for Case Keenum. Foles posted a horrific 69.0 passer rating with a 7:10 TD:INT ratio and career-worst 6.1 YPA. Expect him to land on his feet quickly as a backup on a much cheaper contract. The Jets could have interest.
Jul 27 - 3:41 PM

The Rams plan to bring Nick Foles to training camp later this month.

He didn't attend OTAs or minicamp after coming to a mutual understanding with coach Jeff Fisher. Foles realizes he has no future in Los Angeles, but until a trade partner emerges, he'll continue to see work as the Rams' third-string quarterback behind Jared Goff and Case Keenum. The Rams have been hesitant to release Foles because it would cost the team $8 million in dead money.
Jul 17 - 12:37 PM

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes the Nick Foles situation "bears watching" in New York.

The Jets aren't going to trade for Foles, but they could be interested once the Rams grant his release. Gang Green is still in the market for a veteran quarterback, whether that's Ryan Fitzpatrick or somebody else. At the end of the day, it'll likely be Fitz. When cut, Foles will be the next-best option.

Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams are "trying to work things out" with Nick Foles.

Fisher called Foles' decision to skip OTAs "more of a mutual thing." The Rams want to trade Foles, but might have to cut him if a deal isn't made before training camp. Releasing Foles would leave $8 million in dead money.
