03/11/15 - The St. Louis Rams and Philadelphia Eagles are swapping quarterbacks.
The Rams are sending former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford to Chip Kelly and the Eagles in exchange for Nick Foles.
St. Louis drafted Bradford out of Oklahoma in 2010. Bradford is coming off two ACL injuries and has started just seven games in the past two years. For his five-year career, Bradford sports an 18-30-1 record.
In 2013, Foles emerged as a surprise starter after being drafted out of Arizona. He threw 27 touchdowns against just two interceptions as the Eagles advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
He was unable to capture the same magic in 2014 and suffered a broken collarbone on Nov. 2. He was replaced by former New York Jets Mark Sanchez, who agreed to re-sign with the Eagles for two years.
Once the trade is finalized, St.Louis will save about $13 million in base salary. Foles' salary is slightly more than $1.5 million.
The Eagles now have traded last season's Opening Day quarterback and their leading rusher (LeSean McCoy) and watched their leading receiver (Jeremy Maclin) leave via free agency.
12/26/14 - QB Nick Foles (collarbone) is out this week.
12/24/14 - The Eagles aren't likely to re-sign Mark Sanchez, who will become a free agent after the season. But Chip Kelly needs to make a fairly quick decision on his other quarterback, Nick Foles, so that he can determine whether they need to pursue a quarterback in free agency and/or the NFL Draft.
Foles led the league in passing last season, but didn't play very well this season in eight starts before fracturing his collarbone. He has not been cleared to play in Sunday's final regular-season game against the Giants.
"I don't think you can look back on it and say this clouds this and this doesn't cloud, because that's reality of it: He got hurt," Kelly said. "We've got to make decisions moving forward in terms of what we're going to do. ...
"It doesn't matter if I (got enough of a look.) The reality is the reality. So I can't say, 'Hey, let's not make a decision because I need to see him play 16 more games', and certain times we're going to have to make decisions. We're going to make it based on what we have. We don't have any control over the injury."
12/21/14 - QBs Nick Foles and Mark Sanchez are the second pair of NFL teammates to each throw for over 2,000 yards in the same season, joining St. Louis' Kurt Warner and Trent Green in 2000.
12/19/14 - QB Nick Foles (collarbone) is out of Saturday's game.
12/17/14 - QB Nick Foles will miss his seventh straight game this week with a broken collarbone. He was examined on Monday, but the bone still had not fully healed. It's unknown whether he might be able to return next week for the final regular-season game against the Giants.
12/15/14 - QB Nick Foles had his collarbone x-rayed Monday and it still has not fully healed. So he will sit out a seven straight game Saturday.
He has been cleared to do more throwing on the side, but can't have any contact. There's a possibility he will be cleared to play for the Eagles' final regular-season game on Dec. 28 against the Giants.
12/12/14 - QB Nick Foles (collarbone) is out of Sunday's game.
12/10/14 - QB Nick Foles will miss his sixth straight game Sunday as he heals from a fractured collarbone. He has been throwing the ball and is scheduled to be examined by a doctor early next week. But the earliest he probably would be activated is Week 17.
12/08/14 - QB Nick Foles missed his fifth straight game with a broken collarbone. Chip Kelly said there was no update on him. He is expected to be examined again next week.
