Nick Foles' career with the Philadelphia Eagles might not be over just yet. If the reported friction between Carson Wentz and several key members of the Philly roster is real then Eagles Executive Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman may opt to trade Wentz instead.
There have been rumblings for months of a division within in the Eagles locker room. There is the group that is pro-Wentz, and then there is a smaller group that is pushing for a Wentz trade in favor of keeping Foles. ESPN's Josina Anderson touched on this in November.
"The source said we don't have the same chemistry as last year," Anderson said. "We didn't have that same identity that same rhythm and that same camaraderie that you build off the field. He says that is off. The other thing that the source pointed to is that 'I feel like we're over-targeting Zach Ertz.'"
It's become a guessing game as to who the sources were for the PhillyVoice story published on Monday and who the source was for Anderson in November. The good guess is that a receiver like Nelson Agholor or Alshon Jeffery was frustrated with Wentz under center. Jeffery had his best three games of the season with Foles at QB and Agholor's top two games of the season came with Foles throwing the ball as well.
It's unlikely, however, that Agholor or Jeffery have the type of stroke within the Eagles organization to have the front office second guess choosing Wentz over Foles. The Philly brass still views Wentz as a potential league MVP and Foles did not exactly dominate statistically down the stretch of the season and in the playoffs. Foles threw more interceptions in the playoffs this year (3) than he had touchdowns (4).
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday that Foles and the Eagles would likely "work together" to facilitate a trade to his preferred landing spot. The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars are said to be highly interested in Foles' services.
