The Chiefs and Eagles discussed a potential Nick Foles trade earlier this week at the NFL Combine, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.
Per the report, the Eagles told Kansas City what they’ve said publicly: That Foles is going to compete with Michael Vick for the starting job, and that he is not currently on the market.
The report is notable though because it reiterates the idea that Andy Reid is definitely interested in acquiring his former quarterback.
So you can expect to hear some some non-draft related buzz in the coming days. And that buzz could very well include Nick Foles‘ future.
We last talked about Foles when a USA Today report suggested that Andy Reid and the Chiefs would be interested in acquiring him. Soon thereafter, reports surfaced that the Eagles had no plans to trade Foles.
Ahh, the games teams play in February.
To get a firmer grasp on the potential of Foles being dealt, let’s answer some key questions.
The void Jim Johnson left when he passed away back in July of 2009 has not yet been filled. The Eagles went through three defensive coordinators in the last four seasons, and they all fell short. It is one of the biggest reasons why Andy Reid is now coaching the Chiefs.
The importance of assistant coaches can be lost to a degree when so much focus is on the head man. Chip Kelly is the story, he is the draw. He is also nothing if his staff can’t pull its weight.
Andy Reid just won’t go away. Just as the Eagles were breaking free from a good relationship gone stale, new head coach Chip Kelly has […]
“One person that I really want to thank in terms of advice with this whole thing was Andy Reid,” Kelly said, sitting next to Jeffrey Lurie in the Novacare auditorium Thursday afternoon. “And the fact that Andy reached out to me and told me about his experience here just told me what this organization is all about. There’s not a classier guy. When Andy texted me yesterday when I accepted the job, I told him I had really, really, really big shoes to fill, and in typical Andy fashion, he said, ‘Just be yourself and you’ll be fine.’ So I want to just publicly thank Andy, because that really right there spoke to me about what this organization is all about.”
But Reid wasn’t the only person who Kelly talked to during the last couple weeks.
