Article: Chiefs Most Likely Landing Spot for Foles

Now that Vick has re-signed with Philly, it makes sense that this stuff would start coming out given the Reid/Foles connection.

Quote:
Chiefs a logical landing spot if Nick Foles is dealt

By Dan Hanzus
Around the League Writer
Published: Feb. 11, 2013 at 08:12 p.m. Updated: Feb. 12, 2013 at 12:06 a.m.

Chip Kelly said Monday it was his "hope" the Philadelphia Eagles will have both Michael Vick and Nick Foles on the roster come Week 1.

Kelly called it an "open competition" at quarterback and stressed that Foles was kept in the loop on the Eagles' thinking in restructuring Vick's deal. It certainly doesn't sound like the Eagles are about to ship Foles out of town.

That said, Kelly didn't rule out a possible trade. Around The League checked in with NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah, who served as the Eagles' west coast scout from 2010-12. Jeremiah doesn't know the Eagles' internal thinking on the matter, but he pointed to the Kansas City Chiefs as a potential trade fit.

The logic is simple: Andy Reid took over as head coach of the Chiefs last month after 14 seasons in Philadelphia. His staff includes Doug Pederson, the former Eagles' quarterbacks coach who now serves as the Chiefs' offensive coordinator. Foles' skill-set is ideally suited for the West Coast offense, and he spent his rookie season learning the Reid playbook in Philadelphia.

"I know both Andy Reid and Doug Pederson were very high on Nick Foles and his future," Jeremiah said. "They were huge supporters through the entire process and believe in him greatly.

"I would think they would explore that opportunity if it presented itself."

Reid and Pederson love Foles' size and accuracy, two traits they covet at the position. And while we don't imagine the Eagles would bend over backwards to help Reid, it certainly helps that the divorce between coach and team was largely amicable. That Reid now operates in a different conference doesn't hurt, either.

Kelly said Monday that every NFL team needs two quarterbacks. There's logic to that, especially when Vick is one of them. But if Reid wanted Foles enough, the Eagles would have to at least listen.

We need QBs so I'd trade our 5th for Foles. I'd still draft Geno Smith though and after that if we end up with a 3rd round compensitory pick we still have four picks to acquire some talent with early in the draft.

Well it is the 1st pick of the 5th round so there is that. We could always add on a concitional draft pick in the 2014 draft if need be.

Out of curiosity who else would actually be a good fit for Foles? Who really wants him that the EAgles will have any leverage in the deal? Foles doesn't seem to fit Kelly's offense so in the end what are they going to do with him? He may come cheaper then we think.

If he was something special, Kelly would find a way to make him work.

No Foles is the backup and emergancy starter if Geno ends up not being ready day one. Ha ha. He'll be ready but Foles will also help with that because he knows the offense.

Exactly.

He's not worth anything more than a 5th.

Chiefs interested in trading for Nick Foles
Mike Garafolo, USA TODAY Sports5:41p.m. EST February 14, 2013
02-14-nick-foles

(Photo: Eric Hartline, USA TODAY Sports)
Story Highlights

Chiefs coach Andy Reid drafted Foles for Philadelphia in 2012
Foles went 1-5 as the starter during his rookie season
Foles threw for 1,699 yards, six touchdowns with five interceptions

While the Philadelphia Eagles continue to see Nick Foles as an option to be their quarterback this upcoming season, the reality is the team now has two quarterbacks more fitted to run Chip Kelly's system.

The Eagles signed free-agent Dennis Dixon on Thursday. Dixon played under Kelly at Oregon in 2007 when Kelly was the offensive coordinator.

So it's in the realm of possibility Foles could be traded. And if so, the Kansas City Chiefs could be the destination.

The Chiefs and new coach Andy Reid are interested in acquiring Foles if he becomes available, according to a person informed of the team's thinking. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs haven't discussed their thoughts on their roster publicly, said the team is working on plans to add a quarterback and considers Foles a possibility.

Kelly has said Foles and Michael Vick would compete for the starting job and that both could run a similar system, despite their differences in style. The person informed of the Chiefs' plans said the Eagles have not told Kansas City that Foles is available to this point.

But if the Eagles decide Vick is their best option, it makes sense to deal Foles. In seven games under Reid this past season, Foles showed flashes of being a successful NFL quarterback by throwing for 1,699 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions.

Foles led a last-minute comeback victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14. It was the only victory in Reid's final 12 games as Eagles coach. Reid's elation on the sideline after Foles' game-winning TD pass showed how thrilled he was with the performance.

Former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah, now an NFL.com analyst, reported Reid and Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, an assistant coach with the Eagles under Reid, "were very high on Nick Foles and his future."

The Chiefs have the No. 1 overall pick in April's draft, but the class of quarterbacks is generally not considered strong.

The Chiefs will likely release veteran Matt Cassel unless he takes a pay cut from his $7.5 million base salary for 2013 -- and it's unclear if they'll even offer that option. The team's best chance at getting Reid a reliable signal caller will be in free agency or the trade market.

San Francisco 49ers backup Alex Smith has also been mentioned as a possibility.

Let me guess: The Chiefs swap their first for the Eagles #4 overall, Foles and a 3rd rounder in 2014.

Worrisome. You don't trade draft picks for a player you intend to be a backup.
