Nick Foles tells Eagles he is retiring, opening the way to the franchise tag

PHILADELPHIA – Quarterback Nick Foles has informed the Eagles that he is canceling his $ 20 million option for 2019, after the team told him he would withdraw the option, a source said. ; AdP Schefter of ESPN.

Fouls have to pay the Eagles $ 2 million to give up.

The move paves the way for the Eagles to place the franchise tag on Foles. Expected to do so in an attempt to trade it, sources of other NFL teams who have been in contact with Philadelphia have previously told Schefter.

The quarterback tag number for quarterbacks should be around $ 25 million for the next season.

The Eagles have publicly committed themselves to Carson Wentz as their starting QB moves forward. By placing the franchise tag on Foles, they would have the opportunity to receive compensation for the Foles through trade while having a say in where it ends. The price for Foles should be around a third choice, according to Schefter.

Foles, the MVP of Super Bowl LII, intervened again for the injured Wentz at the end of last season and helped the Eagles to win three consecutive wins in the regular season and a win in the Chicago Bears playoffs in the round wild-card.

Foles, 30, completed 72 percent of his passes and launched seven touchdowns and four interceptions in five regular season games in 2018.
