Report: Chiefs, Eagles talk about Nick Foles
By Bill Williamson
INDIANAPOLIS -- The dance has begun.
USA Today reports the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles have talked about a trade involving quarterback Nick Foles.
However, the report states the Eagles maintained their public stance that Foles is not available to the Chiefs during the talks.
Kansas City's interest in Foles is understandable. Former Eagles coach Andy Reid, now in Kansas City, drafted Foles in the third round last season and Reid made Foles his starting quarterback late in the year.
Foles and Michael Vick will likely compete to be the Eagles’ quarterback under new coach Chip Kelly. However, Vick appears to be a much better fit for Kelly’s system.
Still, until Foles is made available, the Chiefs may have to consider other options at their greatest area of need.
I expect the Chiefs to continue to stay in touch with the Eagles on this matter and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Eagles’ stance changes.
