The Philadelphia Eagles seemingly solved their quarterback situation this offseason by shipping Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts, opening the door for Jalen Hurts to step in as the team's starter. However, Hurts' backup remains up in the air.

An ESPN insider has revealed the team has been in discussions regarding a shocking backup QB trade.

Nick Foles Eagles-Bears Trade Rumors

According to Jeremy Fowler, the Eagles have been in talks with the Chicago Bears regarding Nick Foles. It's surprising to hear the team considering another reunion with the QB, but it could make sense.

Foles was reportedly included in the Bears' trade package for Wentz, so it's clear Philadelphia was open to the idea. But, Fowler seems to indicate that talks could pick up with ease.

"Now, Wentz ultimately went to Indianapolis. But those talks have been ongoing, they’re in place, all they would have to do this week is revive them."

With Hurts' starter status in place but not solidified yet, it'd be smart for the Eagles to nab a competent backup just in case things go sour. Plus, a veteran with experience could be a real asset as the second-round pick gets accustomed to the role of starter at the NFL level.

And with the Bears inking Andy Dalton to be their new starter, Foles might not want to be in Chicago either. A deal between the two teams could work in everybody's best interest, bringing back a Super Bowl hero to Philadelphia.
