    This is laughable. Talk about fabricating a crisis. Too funny.

      They need to trade Wentz. They’re just afraid that they will lose their superstar, but Foles has shown that he can get you to a Super Bowl and win it. He has always been a great QB. He’s smarter than Wentz. Foles poked holes in the LoB! Wentz got flustered by a lesser version of that D.

      I like Wentz’s upside, but if the Eagles keep him and lose Foles they will be making a mistake.

        Foles is clearly a starter! So that third scenario wouldn’t pass the smell test. The NFL should have a rule. You keep!

          The problem with your argument the Eagles that said they want him back as the backup and they haven't been actively shopping him. Listening to offers isn't a violation of the CBA. So be bad for Nick Foles to try that move

            We should just keep Foles. Trade Wentz.... Foles is Philly, Wentz isn't... This city's gonna erupt if Wentz fucks up or gets hurt anyway. Foles would be able to get by with a little bit but Wentz won't. It's poor business to get rid of Foles. And I really do not see Wentz doing what people believe he will .... I've seen him play for 3yrs now and while he did great in 2017 that's about all I saw. Not so good the other two years. And yes, he was injured but there in lies another problem.

                Wasn't Pittsburg trying to do the same thing with bell this year? Jarvis got tagged and traded, Matt Cassell has been tagged and traded, Jared Allen was tagged and traded. This guy is funny. It may be against the cba but clearly they don't care.

                  Nick Foles put the Eagles in the elite talk tbh.. We'll see what the injury prone Wentz does now huh?

                      The Eagles already claimed Wentz is their guy. So it would be a sham if they tried to claim they really wanted to keep Foles.

                        I’d keep him another year while wentz isn’t making much. Look what he’s done. Wentz can’t be trusted with his health.

                          If they don't get wentz a star runningback, eagles are doomed for the season. Kareem hunt is off the table now.

                            just because its awkward does not mean they cant still win games. idc how divided the lockerroom is, or how uncomfortable it makes the fans to have Wentz making less than Foles, the game is still won on the field.

                              I would love to see Nick Foles go to the giants. It would make the NFC east a very exciting division next season.

                                    First and foremost I'm not an eagle fan. New England all day baby. Also just going off the heading and not listening to the interview. If the eagles franchise him that tells me they aren't fully sold on Carson. Last year they struggled until he got hurt and Foles got them in the playoffs. They year before that though Carson was killing and Foles wasn't all that impressive at the end of year until the NFC championship and the super bowl(against poorest defense smh)

                                            All Foles has accomplished is reaching the Super Bowl, that Super Bowl was rigged against the Patriots by the refs and replay officials. If that game is called legit the Patriots win that Super Bowl.

                                            That said, why don't they keep Foles and get rid of Wentz? He's the one who's actually done something.

                                                Foles is better, why don’t they understand this? Just because they gave up insane amount to move up to draft Wentz doesn’t mean sticking with him is the right choice.

                                                  Mike James and this time foles wont have the benefit of Wentz’s rookie qb contract to stack his team with talent to help him to win nor will he have another qb to get him the number 1 seed.

                                                  jrad410 Read what I’m writing and try to use your brain. Wentz’s window is closing with his 5th year approaching. He’s going to get PAID also. Much more than Foles likely, even though he couldn’t finish 2/3 years he’s played. This time the Birds won’t have Foles to save the season, as he has the last two years.

                                                  Mike James my god are you truly this clueless on how the salary cap works? It’s like talking with brick wall, you literally proved my point when you said that foles wasn’t getting paid huge money. That’s the freaking point!! Now he will and he won’t have a team stacked with talent that will help him win a title

                                                  jrad410 Right and when Wentz gets paid they’ll be there. Fact is Foles wasn’t getting paid huge money in Philly and was winning playoff games. Carson hasn’t done anything and will need to get a much bigger deal than Foles or Wilson.

                                                  Mike James So all of those free agents they brought in meant nothing? Alshon, Long, Ajayi, Blount, Curry etc. Where do you think they got the money to sign all these guys? We’ll see soon enough with foles because he won’t have that advantage next year. There’s a reason why the Seahawks came back down to earth after Wilson got paid

                                                Foles is the man.. He's a better qb n smarter n he doesn't get hurt. Spreads the ball around n players play better. I think wentz will have a short career in fball. I think that injury he had last yr. Messed him up. Even if he goes somewhere else, I will cheer for him . he's a class act.

                                                Foles is more "Battle Worthy" than Wentz. Wentz has won many games. but Foles has won the most important games! Foles probably gonna sign with a new team, but thats how it goes. Salary cap is a real thing.

                                                  Either trade Wentz or let Foles walk as a Free Agent and MOVE ON! Quit trying to find a scheme to get compensation out of a guy who delivered you a Super Bowl Championship.

Plus, they want to control his rights by tricking the CBA. Yeah, I don't know. Please Mark, you have no clue. You either pay him 25 mil and trade Wentz or you let the guy(Foles) walk. Stop dicking both qbs to get trade value. You cannot franchise a player to trade him in good faith. Know the rules jackass.

                                                                  • Team-USA

A player missing more than a month, in Weins case 2 months, that is serious injury. Weins has a cannon 9f an arm, but Foles decision making is overall better and he brings synergy to the team. I am not a Eagles fan since they fired Vermeil. But Foles has proven time and time again. Reminds me of Chris Simms vs. Major Applewhite at Texas....

But Nick has already stated he loves the team and the City and the fans and obviously the team City and fans love him so what I don't agree with in this conversation is that Nick should be out for blood. He understands that he is valuable and also knows the situation that the Eagles drafted Carson to be the future and if he really wants to go play somewhere else then I don't see any reason why he wouldn't be okay with the Eagles trying to get something in return. This is a team that gave him a second shot when he was considering retirement and put him in this situation to win a Superbowl. Nick is a very humble man and I'm sure thankful so I could see Nick being completely okay with the Eagles tagging him and trying to get back a first-rounder or more
