Nick Foles reportedly declines Eagles option, enters free agency

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles declined his $20 million option.

What It Means:

Foles forfeited $2 million to void the final year of his deal and enter free agency. The Eagles can apply the franchise tag in an effort to trade Foles, rather than letting him walk, but it appears he will be playing for another team in 2019. Foles turned 30 in January.

Foles averaged 282.6 passing yards (7.2 yards per attempt) on a 72.3 completion percentage with 7 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in five games last season.
