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.

Nick Foles is skipping Rams OTAs.

With the Rams taking Jared Goff at No. 1 overall and keeping Case Keenum as the backup with a first-round RFA tender, Foles doesn't have a place on the team. The Rams hoped to trade him, but likely will end up cutting Foles.
Jun 1 - 9:06 AM

ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports the Rams hope to trade Nick Foles.

Per Wagoner, 4-5 teams have reached out, but a deal could depend on how the draft unfolds. If Foles can't be moved for a day three pick, he will be released.
Apr 28 - 5:57 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports "several teams" are interested in acquiring Nick Foles.

Foles is a goner from the Rams after he flopped badly as an 11-game starter in his lone season with the team. The Rams will move forward with their No. 1 overall pick, either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz, and Case Keenum and Sean Mannion as the backups. Foles is a candidate to be traded this weekend with the Rams being lucky to get anything more than a late-round pick in return.
Apr 25 - 11:09 AM

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Rams are expected to move on from Nick Foles by the start of training camp and that he will "definitely" be gone before Week 1.

Florio cited a source with "knowledge of the dynamics." The Rams have committed to Case Keenum as the starter for 2016, so trading or releasing Foles wouldn't be a shocking development. Assuming the Rams are serious about moving him, Foles could be a cheap fallback option for the Broncos if they fail to acquire Colin Kaepernick. Foles carries a $1.75 million base salary for 2016, which is certainly within the Broncos' price range. Of course, Denver might not see him as much of an upgrade over current starter Mark Sanchez. Either way, Foles should be gone sooner rather than later, especially if Los Angeles drafts a quarterback with the 15th pick.
Apr 10 - 10:43 AM

Rams coach Jeff Fisher says the team is "going to give Nick Foles a chance" to compete for the starting job.

The admission came during Fisher's attempt to claim he's comfortable with Case Keenum at quarterback. Fisher also admitted the team "needs to upgrade" under center. Fisher said "things got overwhelming" for Foles in 2015, and termed his benching as a "chance to catch his breath." An inveterate coach-speaker, what Fisher says now has little bearing on what the Rams' ultimate reality at quarterback will be. Someone could be drafted at No. 15 overall, making Foles a no-brainer cut candidate.
Mar 22 - 10:05 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner considers Nick Foles "the most likely option to be deleted" if Los Angeles adds an outside quarterback.

The Rams have made surprisingly little effort to upgrade at quarterback this offseason and aren't in a position to draft Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. That leaves Case Keenum as the default starter ahead of Foles and Sean Mannion. Los Angeles likes Mannion's upside and would hesitate to move him. Realistically, the Rams' window for trading Foles has probably closed now that his $6 million roster bonus is fully guaranteed. Robert Griffin III is known to be intrigued by Los Angeles but that interest appears to be one-sided.
Mar 13 - 9:21 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport named the Cowboys, Dolphins and Redskins as teams that could be interested in Nick Foles.

Foles lost his starting job to Case Keenum last year and has been floated in trade rumors all offseason. Foles would have to settle for backup job if he's traded to any of the teams listed by Rapoport. The Eagles were rumored to be interested in bringing Foles back to Philly, but that went out the window as soon as they re-signed Sam Bradford. Foles seems extremely unlikely to be traded given his guaranteed $6 million roster bonus due next week.
Mar 4 - 1:24 PM

The Philadelphia Daily News' Les Bowen reports the Eagles are not interested in reacquiring Rams QB Nick Foles.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday new coach Doug Pederson was interested in the Eagles' former quarterback, but a source told Bowen, "There is no chance the team will reacquire Foles." If accurate, it is the right decision by Philadelphia. Foles has not shown anything the last two seasons to suggest he is markedly better than current No. 2 Mark Sanchez, and trading even a late-round pick to acquire what looks like a bad contract is not a sound way to build a football team. The Rams are likely stuck with Foles until they can get out of his contract next offseason.
Feb 8 - 10:07 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports new Eagles coach Doug Pederson is "interested" in bringing Nick Foles back to Philadelphia.

The quarterback wheels are spinning in Philly. Schefter reported Sunday the Eagles are no longer planning to franchise tag Sam Bradford, and now it looks like Pederson is gearing up for a reunion with Foles. Pederson was the Eagles' quarterbacks coach when the team drafted Foles in 2012. Foles is coming off a dreadful year in St. Louis, but the $7.75 million he'll make in 2016 is far less than what Bradford will command in free agency. It's unclear what the Rams would be looking for in a trade for Foles. The Rams benched Foles down the stretch last year, deciding Case Keenum was a better option.
Feb 7 - 12:29 PM

Nick Foles completed 15-of-35 passes for 146 yards and an interception in St. Louis' 27-3, Week 13 loss to the Cardinals.

Foles was amazingly ineffective in this one, failing to make a single positive play. It was announced afterwards that he's been re-benched for Case Keenum. Foles' extension is shaping up as a(nother) massive mistake for Jeff Fisher's pathetic Rams team.

Nick Foles will remain the Rams' starter for Week 13.

Case Keenum remains in the league's concussion protocol, and will be the No. 2 even if he's active. Devoid of weapons behind a nightmarishly bad offensive line, an extremely limited Foles isn't worth firing up even as the most contrarian of contrarian plays in DFS leagues. He'll have no shot against the Cardinals.

Nick Foles completed 30-of-46 passes for 228 yards with three interceptions and rushed once for two yards in the Rams' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

And people wonder why the Rams benched Foles for Case Keenum last week. Foles ran the St. Louis offense into the ground with another dismal performance on Sunday. His arm strength and poise were nonexistent while his decision-making was puzzling to say the least. His first interception came off a deflection by George Iloka late in the second quarter. Jared Cook had no chance of making the catch in tight coverage. Foles followed that up with an off-balance pass to Bradley Marquez that Leon Hall took back for an easy pick-six. After digging a 24-point hole for the Rams, Foles spent most of the fourth quarter watching while rookie Sean Mannion got his first reps of the season. Assuming Case Keenum (concussion) is cleared to play next week against the Cardinals, Foles should be headed back to the bench.
