It’s no secret the Chiefs will have a new quarterback on the team next year, the only question is how that player (or players) will end up in Kansas City. If there’s a quarterback they like at the top of the draft, they can put any trade talk to bed in New York City in April. There will also be a few options on the trade market.
While Alex Smith of the San Francisco 49ers has received most of the attention, it looks like new head coach Andy Reid could have his eye on Philadelphia Eagles signal caller Nick Foles.
With the Eagles re-signing Michael Vick and adding free agent (and former Oregon Duck) Dennis Dixon, there may not be room for Foles. If he becomes available, Reid would be reuniting with the signal caller, according to USA Today.
Reid drafted Foles in the third round of the draft last year and handed the starting job for the final six games of the 2012 season after Vick was injured. In his time running the Eagles offense, Foles completed 60 percent of his passes for 1,699 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions.
With a new system being installed in Philadelphia, one Dixon already knows from his time at Oregon, it would makes a lot of sense for the Eagles to try and move Foles, though sources claim they will need to be “blown away by an offer“. Either way, if the Eagles decide to trade him, the Chiefs should have competition.
The former Arizona Wildcat could head back to the desert and give a lift to the Cardinals. The Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders could also test the waters.
