As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to possibly begin another magical postseason run with backup quarterback Nick Foles on Sunday, questions remain about how the Eagles will handle the quarterback position in the offseason. A new report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport indicated the Eagles will try to get something in return for the veteran signal caller.

According to Rapoport, the Eagles might be inclined to franchise tag Foles after the year and then trade him, rather than let him walk in free agency. The 29-year-old Super Bowl MVP could get the Eagles a second-round pick or perhaps more from a team with a playoff-ready roster that needs a quarterback, like the Jacksonville Jaguars or Denver Broncos.

Foles threw for 962 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions in the Eagles’ three-game winning streak to close out the season and secure a playoff berth.

Some may wonder why the Eagles would get rid of Foles in favor of regular starter Carson Wentz, who has not been able to stay healthy or start a playoff game. Wentz is younger, has played well when healthy and is largely viewed as the more talented quarterback, having been taken second overall in the draft in 2016.

Wentz also has a significantly smaller cap hit, as he is still on his rookie contract.

Rapoport previously reported in mid-December that Foles was expected to walk in free agency after this season, but his strong finish to the season may have changed things. Foles was instrumental in the Eagles returning to the playoffs, and will likely be a hot commodity in a quarterback market that will also include Joe Flacco and Teddy Bridgewater.
