Draft Scout Nick Foles News
08/30/16 - QB Nick Foles will not play Thursday evening in the Chiefs preseason finale against the Packers. Foles played 59 snaps in the previous three games, throwing for 235 yards while completing 68.6 percent of his passes (24 of 35) with no interceptions and an 87.2 passer rating.
08/05/16 - QB Nick Foles officially signed with the Chiefs on Friday and he then joined his new team at practice. After being released last week by the Rams, Foles elected to accept a one-year contract offer from the Chiefs, rejoining his coach from his rookie year in Philadelphia, Andy Reid.
Published reports said the deal is for $1.7 million in the 2016 season with incentives available. There is a club option for 2017, based on incentives achieved in the coming season. Foles, 27, will be the backup to starter Alex Smith. At Friday morning's practice, Foles was throwing passes during individual drills.
07/31/16 - QB Nick Foles was released by the Rams on the eve of training camp, clearing by one the competition for rookie Jared Goff in his quest to win the starting job. Goff is in a three-way battle for the spot, along with current starter Case Keenum and second-year QB Sean Mannion. But for all intents and purposes, it will be a Keenum/Goff faceoff. As for Foles, so ends a whirlwind 16 months in which he was involved in a blockbuster trade for Sam Bradford, declared the Rams quarterback of the future and signed to a two-year extension only to lose his job to Keenum after 12 games then ultimately land on the unemployment line.
Foles formally requested the release, and with the Rams unable to find a suitable trade partner they obliged. "We have been in contact with Nick and his representation throughout the offseason and we feel that this is the best decision for all parties involved," head coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement released by the team. "We appreciate the contributions that Nick has made to our organization in his time as a Ram and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors."
07/27/16 - QB Nick Foles is released a day before veterans are due to report to training camp, the Rams announced Wednesday.
Foles, 27, had requested his release, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Rams reportedly tried to trade Foles but were unsuccessful.
Foles, who had skipped the Rams' offseason workouts, was not pleased when the team traded up for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and selected quarterback Jared Goff.
Foles will now become an unrestricted free agent. He was acquired last offseason in the trade that sent Sam Bradford to the Philadelphia Eagles. After the trade, Foles signed a two-year, $24.5 million extension that included nearly $13.8 million in guarantees.
Foles started the first nine games with the Rams last season but was benched for Case Keenum after throwing only seven touchdowns with six interceptions and five fumbles during a 4-5 start. Foles started all 11 games he appeared in during his lone season with the Rams, throwing for 2,052 yards and seven touchdowns with 10 interceptions, while completing 56.4 percent of his passes.
12/03/15 - QB Nick Foles will start at quarterback again this week for the Rams while Case Keenum continues to recover from a concussion.
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher announced Thursday that Keenum remains in concussion protocol but could be cleared before Sunday's game against the NFC West-leading Arizona Cardinals. If Keenum is available, he would serve as the No. 2 quarterback.
Keenum was injured when he landed on the back of his helmet during a loss two weeks ago to the Baltimore Ravens.
"He's feeling better, feeling good," Fisher said of Keenum. "Part of the protocol is just evaluating him. So all the tests with the neurologist and things are OK. It's just about him feeling 100 percent."
