NFL Rumors: Philadelphia Eagles to Keep Nick Foles?

With the recent signing of Dennis Dixon, there’s been plenty of NFL rumors surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles possibly trading Nick Foles to the Kansas City Chiefs as the quarterback would be able to reunite with Andy Reid and compete for the starting job. Unfortunately for the Chiefs though, it appears this type of move may be more difficult to happen.

Apparently, the Eagles have little interest in moving Foles unless the Chiefs provided the team with an offer they couldn’t refuse–which sounds awfully familiar from the situation a few years ago when they traded Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals. Before Chip Kelly came on board as head coach for the 2013 season, many believed Foles would take over the starting job at quarterback considering all of the struggles surrounding Vick from last season, but that’s obviously no longer the case.

As much as Foles doesn’t want to hear it, his best option may be the No. 3 spot at quarterback on the roster considering Kelly has been known to use running quarterbacks in his offense. Foles still has plenty of work to do when it comes to being a starter, but he clearly showed some potential at times if the Eagles aren’t willing to give him up as easy as the Chiefs were hoping for.

Then again, anything could change over the next couple of weeks–so it should be interesting to see whether or not Philadelphia changes their minds when it comes to Foles being on the roster heading into 2013.
