Default Eagles Sign Nick Foles To 2 Years $11 Million

Nick Foles returning to Philadelphia Eagles on two-year deal

Former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Nick Foles is returning to the Philadelphia Eagles on a two-year deal, the team announced Monday.

Foles will serve as the backup to second-year starter Carson Wentz. Foles' deal is worth $11 million, with $7 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson, confirming a report by NFL Network.

The Chiefs declined Foles' option last Thursday, making him a free agent.

Foles, who turned 28 in January, joined the Chiefs last season as a free agent after being released by the Rams. He played in three games for Kansas City, starting one. He threw for 410 yards and three touchdowns in those three games.

Foles played three seasons for the Eagles and one for the Rams before joining the Chiefs.

The Eagles' third-round pick in 2012, Foles started five games that season; in 2013, he had one of the more remarkable quarterback seasons in NFL history. Foles threw 27 touchdown passes with just two interceptions in leading the Eagles to the playoffs. He was selected for his only Pro Bowl that season.

Foles' play declined drastically in 2014, when he threw for just 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He was traded to the Rams after that season as part of the deal that sent quarterback Sam Bradford to Philadelphia. Foles played poorly for the Rams, throwing for seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions before being benched late in the season.

It could be some weird irony if he ends up getting a chance to play in Philly and does well.
