Most Likely Landing Spots for Nick Foles in Free Agency

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles got another chance to strut his stuff with Carson Wentz missing the Eagles game against the Rams in Week 15. He absolutely delivered too, throwing for 270 yards and led the Eagles to the upset win. 


Thanks to his restructured deal, Foles will either get paid $20 million by the Eagles next year (not likely) or he will become a free agent following the season and see what he's actually worth. 


Here are three teams that could take a chance on the former Super Bowl MVP.

Big Blue could definitely use all the help they can get at quarterback, and it's not a crazy idea for them to want someone in their building with knowledge of a division rival. Even if the Giants aren't ready to move off Eli Manning next season, Foles still provides them with a capable backup QB -- something they have lacked sin the Jeff Hostetler days -- or someone who pushes Eli to win the top spot. 

2. Denver Broncos

This is another scenario where a team really doesn't have any great options at the quarterback position. Case Keenum has been middling along all season, and such a prominent game-manager like Foles would fit well in Denver's offensive scheme. The Broncos didn't invest a ton of money in Keenum, so they shouldn't feel weighed down by keeping him around. 

1. Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville might end up being the perfect spot for Foles, especially if the Jags decide they don't want to just cut Blake Bortles out of their plans altogether. I'm not sure anyone knows whether Foles is an actual starter in this league or a really good backup, but Jacksonville would be the ideal spot for us to figure that out.
