Reports have surfaced that the Cleveland Browns offered the Philadelphia Eagles the 35th pick in the 2018 NFL draft in exchange for Quarterback Nick Foles.
Nick Foles had just led the Eagles to a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII and was named the Super Bowl MVP.
Many speculated at that time whether or not the Eagles would try to cash in on the success that Foles had in the post season, and trade him to a Quarterback needy team.
As time went by, it had been speculated that the Eagles would decline any offer that did not include a 1st round pick. It is rumored that when the Browns offered the 35th pick in the 2018 NFL draft for Foles, the Eagles approached Nick Foles to see how he felt about the possibility of going to Cleveland to be their Quarterback and at that time Foles said that he’d rather stay in Philadelphia.
With the uncertainty surrounding the status of Franchise Quarterback Carson Wentz, and his ability to start the season, the Eagles seem to be hedging their bets and will hold on to Nick Foles.
If Carson Wentz starts the season healthy, the Eagles will still have until the October trade deadline to trade Foles, should they find a suitor.
