In a February 4, 2018 win, the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots for Philly's first Super Bowl win in franchise history. Not only this, but the Eagles overcame loads of adversity over the course of the season. Running back Darren Sproles was injured with a broken arm and torn ACL in an NFL 2017 week three game against the New York Giants. Eagles veteran offensive tackle Jason Peters also suffered an ACL and MCL tear in his right knee during an October 23, 2017, Monday Night Football matchup against the Washington Redskins. Philadelphia's starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, tore his ACL in an NFL 2017 week 14 win over the LA Rams, which bumped backup quarterback Nick Foles to the starting line.

Nick Foles faces uncertain future in Philly

In 2012, quarterback Nick Foles was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles as the 88th pick in the NFL draft. However, in 2015 the Eagles traded Foles to the Rams alongside picks in the 2015 and 2016 NFL drafts in exchange for quarterback Sam Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round draft pick. Nick Foles returned to Philly on March 13, 2017, signing a two-year contract. As the Washington Post reveals, Philadelphia would like to keep Nick Foles, but their decision is still unclear.

Amidst looks ahead to the 2018-2019 season, one of the biggest questions is what to do with Nick Foles once franchise quarterback Carson Wentz returns post-injury. Philly front office exec Howie Roseman announced at the NFL Scouting Combine that "Our intention is to keep all our good players." Although, he did not specifically comment on Foles' fate.

But, Roseman hinted that the Eagles would prefer to hold onto Wentz, Foles, and third-string QB Nate Sudfeld.

"We’re trying to keep as many good players as possible," Roseman continued. Eagles Wire allows that with a 32nd overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, the Eagles have plenty of options to trade, and either move that pick slot up or down.

As is, the Eagles lack second and third-round picks. The best, and most common means to obtain more picks in the draft are through trades. At present, Nick Foles seems the most likely candidate for a trade.

After an impressive run in the 2017-2018 season, Foles certainly should desire a starting slot, whether with the Eagles or another team in the NFL.

The Eagles' win over the Patriots in the Super Bowl set off a strong sports run for Philadelphia. After the Super Bowl LII win, the Philadelphia Flyers went on an eight-game win streak on the road, the Sixers remain 2.5 games behind the Cavaliers, and Joel Embiid was an All-Star.
