I'm not suggesting I'll be pissed if they bring in Foles (unless they give up a high pick for him, which is just a ****ing waste) but it's certainly going to shake my confidence in Reid a bit. It just reeks of one of those moves coaches make to be comfortable and safe.
In the end, I just don't see any reason to bring him in. There are a myriad of better options out there.
Reasons it would make sense to trade a mid round pick for Foles:
1) Andy Reid liked him enough to draft him in the third round, even though he had just committed to Vick with a 100 million dollars.
2) he just turned 24 and has the tools.
3) experience in the exact system we run and the skill set to run it.
Lets not act like Foles looked like trash....he played well for a rookie.
