Report: Eagles not interested in trading Nick Foles

The SportsXchange

The Kansas City Chiefs and new head coach Andy Reid are reportedly interested in acquiring Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles this offseason, but CSNPhilly.com is reporting that the Eagles aren't likely to trade Foles unless they're "blown away by an offer."

Foles is currently one of four quarterbacks on the Eagles roster, joining Michael Vick, Trent Edwards, and Dennis Dixon, who signed to a two-year deal with the Eagles on Thursday. After Vick was restructured his contract with the Eagles on Monday, new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said Vick and Foles would compete for the starting job. But that was before the team signed Dixon, whom Kelly coached at the University of Oregon.

The Eagles' intention to keep Foles would fall in line with Kelly's comments, but the team could also be attempting to maximize his trade value.

USA Today's Mike Garafolo reported Thursday that Reid would be interested in reuniting with Foles in Kansas City. Reid, who was fired as the Eagles' head last month and subsequently hired by the Chiefs, selected Foles in the third round of the draft last April. Foles replaced Michael Vick as the team's starter in November after Vick suffered a concussion. He remained the starter until suffering a broken bone in his throwing hand in Week 16 in his sixth start.

Foles started seven games for the Eagles as a rookie, completing almost 61 percent of his passes, throwing just five interceptions in 265 attempts and finishing with a 79.1 passer rating.
