|Eagles want high pick for QB Foles -- Sat Feb 16 8:05 am --|
Would require a first or second round pick
|If new Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has designs on reuniting with Nick Foles, he's going to have to knock the socks off of the Philadelphia Eagles with a big-time offer. NFL sources tell The Associated Press that the Eagles have yet to discuss trading Foles and would require a first- or second-round pick to even consider it. The Philadelphia Daily News offers a similar report from its own source, maintaining that not only is the team not looking to deal Foles, but that they want to keep him.
Savvy readers may ask how the Eagles could set the price at an early-round pick if the front office has yet to even volley the idea of a Foles trade. It doesn't compute. A more likely scenario is that the team's brass has taken note of Reid's interest and has set the asking price accordingly high. It's standard operating procedure for the Eagles, who originally set the price on Donovan McNabb at a pair of first-rounders in 2010 before settling for two lesser picks. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Foles' strong performances last season were sporadic but he finished the year strong. The Chiefs' quarterback situation is precarious at best and there's no doubt that Reid likes Foles, but there are a number of other teams that could be players, including the Cleveland Browns.
