The Philadelphia Eagles have made it clear they are committed to Carson Wentz moving forward and you have to wonder what’s next for Nick Foles? Foles threw for 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions during the regular season and playoffs combined. That significantly raised the value of Nick Foles stock as a football player and there will be a number of teams that would like to have him as their starting quarterback. The Bills, Cardinals, Broncos, Browns, and Jets are all in need of someone who can lead their offense and at least one of those teams should be willing to trade for the Super Bowl MVP. The good news for the Eagles is they will likely be able to get a 2nd or 3rd rounder for Foles if they trade him this off-season. Right now Philly’s back up quarterback is a hot commodity and Howie Roseman would be wise to sell high. If Wentz comes back and Foles is sitting on the bench next season teams are going to lose interest in everything the Eagles’ number 2 signal caller accomplished in the postseason. You have to strike while the iron is hot and when teams are willing to overpay a little bit for Foles’ services. Out of all of these teams the Browns and the Bills have the most draft picks which could be used to execute a trade. Imagine if Cleveland traded just one of their three second round picks for Foles. Then used the other four first and second round picks they have to get weapons around their new QB. Some of those additional players could include Saquon Barkley, Calvin Ridley, Brian O’Neill, and Mike Hughes. So you can see how this would be a much better option for the Browns oppose to drafting a QB and waiting around for that player to develop. Cleveland should get Foles instead and then load up on skill players to get the most out of their newly acquired gunslinger. If the Bills went after Nick Foles that addition alone would be enough to propel their team to new heights. From there Buffalo could use all those draft picks they’ve stockpiled to stack up the defense and add at least one more receiver. Either way seems like a good fit the question is whether or not the Browns or the Bills will pony up the assets and make a deal happen? It would be wise to call up the Eagles immediately and try to strike an agreement because someone is going to make a move for Nick Foles soon.
