After much indecision over the franchise tag, it's finally officially: Nick Foles will become a free agent. The Eagles announced they won't tag Foles, which means the former Super Bowl MVP can choose where he wants to go and which contract he wants to accept. There is no shortage of quarterback-needy teams in the NFL right now and, with a weaker draft class in 2019, Foles will be in high demand. 


There are quite a few teams that would like the services of a former Super Bowl MVP. Let's take a look at the four most likely landing spots for free agent Nick Foles.

4. Washington Redskins

Last year, Washington was set at quarterback with Alex Smith leading the team towards a playoff berth before suffering a gruesome leg injury. There's no timetable for Smith's return and, with Colt McCoy hurt as well, Washington desperately needs someone to play quarterback. Foles provides a great option and would allow them to poach away a legend from their NFC East rivals.  

3. Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals drafted Josh Rosen last year, but, with a new head coach in town, things could change quickly. There are rumors about Kyler Murray being drafted No. 1 overall and the Cardinals trading Rosen. If that happens, they'll need a veteran to mentor Murray. Foles would be the perfect stopgap, though how willing he is to be one is unknown. 

2. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins have been trying to move away from Ryan Tannehill for a couple years now, but their overall mediocrity has made it tough to draft a quarterback. At No. 13 in this year's draft, the top two or three quarterbacks might be gone yet again. If that happens, their next best decision is Foles, who can turn a perennially 7-9 team back into a playoff contender. 

1. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags need a new quarterback, everyone knows it at this point. They have a solid core in place, but Blake Bortles isn't the answer. If they don't want to take a chance on Dwayne Haskins or Drew Lock, then Foles is the move here. Even if they do pick one of those QBs, Foles can be a mentor. He can slide right in and hopefully lead that defense back to the playoffs and maybe even the first Super Bowl appearance in team history.
