Andy Reid’s West Coast offense, eternally searching for the perfect QB; Nick Foles’ pinpoint accuracy, quick release, and football intelligence. It seemed a match made in heaven.
Now, Reid will attempt to make it a match in Kansas City.
Mike Garafolo of USA TODAY Sports reported Thursday that the Chiefs are interested in acquiring QB Nick Foles. Foles played seven games last season, going 1-6 in those contests. Garafolo writes:
The Chiefs and new coach Andy Reid are interested in acquiring Foles if he becomes available, according to a person informed of the team’s thinking. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs haven’t discussed their thoughts publicly, said the team is working on plans to add a quarterback and considers Foles a possibility.
Chip Kelly has stated that Foles and Michael Vick will compete openly for the starting QB job. Vick, who restructured a new deal Monday, appears a better fit for Kelly’s up-tempo offense. If Vick wins the job, the Eagles may ponder a deal. As of now, however, that is not the case.
Garafolo was a guest on SportsRadio WIP Friday, with Michael Barkann and Ike Reese. Garafolo estimated a “40%” chance that the Eagles trade Foles. Free agency is still a month away. However, Eagles fans have already ridden a bumpy roller coaster through the first month of the offseason.
