Today’s Philadelphia Eagles links check in with the Super Bowl MVP and glance at what his future holds.
There have been plenty of rumors swirling around Foles’ future in Philadelphia, including his status when Wentz returns and a potential return the Eagles could get in a trade. As of right now — the Eagles began their offseason program Monday — Nick Foles is still a Philadelphia Eagles.
But in an honest interview with KVUE in Texas, Foles opened up about his desire to be a starter in the NFL again.
“I think the big thing with Philly is I have such a great relationship with all the personnel decision makers that if there ever does come a day where I am traded or something does happen, it’s going to be an open conversation,” Foles said. “We’re excited to go back to Philly. I’ll be back there in a few days. I don’t know what my career holds from here on out. I’ve been very blessed for the six years I’ve played. I would love to start again and do all that, but we go year by year and we’ll just enjoy Monday and seeing all the guys after an offseason away of being Super Bowl champs.”
Foles has been refreshingly honest about almost giving up football after the 2015 season and how his faith helped him through that time in his life. It’s also been interesting to hear him talk about the Eagles as Wentz’s team despite the fact he led the team to the Super Bowl and was the game’s Most Valuable Player.
Foles knows what his role is in Philly. He’s Wentz’s backup on Wentz’s team. But he thinks he can start again if he gets the chance.
