Should the Philadelphia Eagles trade Nick Foles?
Nick Foles became a legend after guiding the Philadelphia Eagles to the team’s first-ever Super Bowl championship, but he isn’t the only great quarterback on the roster. Carson Wentz was an MVP-caliber quarterback last year. Keeping Foles around would be a waste, especially if Foles’ trade value is high and the team can get a good return. Still, it’s always nice to have two Super Bowl-ready talents on one roster just in case someone gets injured. What do you think?
Foles will forever be a Philadelphia legend. He took over a team after arguably the best quarterback in the league got hurt and was a key player in its Super Bowl run. But with Wentz coming back from injury, the Eagles just don’t need him anymore.
Foles’ trade value is probably the highest it ever will be and Philadelphia can get a lot of assets for him. He’s still in the prime years of his career and has obviously proven his ability as a player on the biggest stage. With the continued development of Nate Sudfeld, the Eagles will have a serviceable backup anyway.
Philly fans will always look to Foles as a folk hero, but the team doesn’t need him anymore. It’s time to trade Foles.
Why would the Eagles end a perfect situation? They have two quarterbacks capable of taking the team to the Super Bowl where the championship-winning backup knows he’s still second fiddle. Every season brings a new set of risks, and Wentz might get injured again. Having Foles around, who Philadelphia knows can win big games, is an invaluable piece to a team with a chance to repeat as Super Bowl champs.
The Eagles should keep him on the roster.
