Nick Foles expected to be a free agent after the season

NFL.com

When the Eagles re-worked Nick Foles' contract before the season, it drew great fanfare. That happens when the Super Bowl MVP gets a dramatic adjustment to his deal. But after Foles headed to the bench in Week 3, talk of his contract ended. So did the storyline of him changing teams, as Philly didn't get any calls for him around trade deadline time.

Now that Foles is the starter today and likely going forward through the regular season – as Carson Wentz hopes to heal a stress fracture in his back – Foles' status is once again in the spotlight.

The expectation is that Foles, thanks in part to his altered deal, will be a free agent. Here is why: The Eagles have a $20-million option for 2019, which they would only pick up if he's the starter (and Wentz should make a full recovery, so Foles won't start).

Foles can buy back the option by paying $2M. The team can also franchise him, theoretically. So almost certainly, he's free.
