The Eagles and Foles agreed to a revised contract Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles' second stint with the Eagles was expected to end after the 2018 season, but the adjusted deal has a mutual option for the 2019 campaign, allowing him to dabble in free agency next offseason or return to Philly. Along with additional flexibility, he received a $2 million signing bonus and has the potential to earn more millions in incentives in 2018 if he starts and reaches certain benchmarks. In the end, Foles' upcoming earnings are tied to Carson Wentz's recovery from a torn ACL, which he suffered Dec. 10. With knowledge of the typical rehab from such an injury, Foles is a good bet to be under center for a number of games, but Wentz relayed his goal Tuesday of a return by Week 1.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the team hasn't come close to trading Foles, NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks reports.

EDGE Analysis

The incentive to make a trade largely evaporated March 17 when Foles collected a $3 million roster bonus. It now makes sense for the Eagles to take their time seeing how Carson Wentz recovers from a late-season ACL tear, perhaps revisiting a trade for Foles in August if their starter is on track for Week 1. The Eagles reportedly were targeting a first-round pick in exchange for the Super Bowl MVP.

Foles will collect a $3 million roster bonus from the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The bonus already was fully guaranteed, but the Eagles could've avoided the cap hit if they'd traded Foles by Saturday. While this doesn't necessarily rule out a trade, the team presumably would've preferred to deal Foles before the bonus kicked in. It does make sense to keep him around, as there's no guarantee Carson Wentz will be recovered from a torn ACL in time for Week 1.

Foles is drawing interest in trade talks, but the Eagles want even more than what they got for Sam Bradford, who was traded to the Vikings in September 2016 in exchange for a 2017 first-round pick and a 2018 fourth-round pick, ESPN.com's Chris Mortensen reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite his recent Super Bowl MVP performance, Foles probably won't warrant a first-round selection plus additional compensation ahead of the second season of a two-year contract. While they may be aiming a bit high, it's understandable the Eagles won't part with Foles easily, as there's no guarantee Carson Wentz (knee) is ready for Week 1 of 2018. It does help that Foles carries a $4 million base salary, which now looks like one of the top bargains in the league among quarterbacks that aren't on a rookie contract.

Foles completed 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Eagles' 41-33 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. He also caught a one-yard touchdown on a trick play late in the second quarter.

EDGE Analysis

Foles put quite the exclamation point on his improbable season with a spectacular performance against the Tom Brady-led Patriots, helping lead the Eagles to the first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. The 29-year-old connected with Alshon Jeffery on a beautiful 34-yard pass in the left corner of the end zone for the first touchdown of the game late in the first quarter, and he gave Philadelphia a 22-12 halftime lead when he caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Trey Burton just before intermission. He'd go on to add a 22-yard scoring dart to Corey Clement and then spearheaded a game-winning 14-play, 75-yard drive that culminated with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz with 2:21 remaining that survived replay review. Foles finished the regular season having completed 57 of 101 passes for 537 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions while filling in for Carson Wentz (knee) following the latter's season-ending injury, but he projects to revert back to his backup role whenever Wentz is back to full health.

Foles said his ribs are "great" in the aftermath of Sunday's 38-7 win against the Vikings, Daniel Gallen of pennlive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

During the NFC championship game, Foles was on the receiving end of some hits from the Vikings defense, which prompted "precautionary X-rays," per the quarterback. Adding credence to his assessment, his name wasn't mentioned among the few Eagles on the first injury report related to the Super Bowl, according to Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal. Foles enters the season finale on a two-game hot streak in which he completed 78 percent (49 of 63) of his throws, averaged 9.5 yards per attempt and tossed three touchdowns versus no interceptions.

Foles underwent precautionary X-rays on his ribs Sunday following the Eagles' 38-7 win over the Vikings in the NFC championship game, a source informed Sal Paolantonio of ESPN. "I'm good," Foles told Adam Schefter of ESPN after being examined in the locker room.

EDGE Analysis

If Foles was playing hurt Sunday it certainly didn't show, as the quarterback turned in the best outing of his five starts since replacing MVP candidate Carson Wentz (knee). Foles completed 26 of 33 passes for 352 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, with the performance made all the more impressive considering it came against the NFL's top scoring defense. The Eagles could monitor Foles' practice reps carefully over the next two weeks leading up to Super Bowl matchup with New England, but it doesn't look like the rib issue will threaten his availability for that contest.

Foles was tremendous in Sunday's 38-7 NFC championship triumph over the Vikings, completing 26 of 33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns.

EDGE Analysis

Minnesota's defense was able to make Foles uncomfortable in the pocket early, but he did a great job of escaping and finding receivers downfield. He was most impressive on third down, converting 10 of 14 tries against a Vikings unit that had been historically proficient at getting off the field in such situations. Foles' touchdown passes of 53, 41 and five yards to Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Jeffery again, respectively, should have him brimming with confidence heading into the Super Bowl.

Foles completed 23 of 30 pass attempts for 246 yards in Saturday's 15-10 win over the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Foles managed the game efficiently, completing an impressive 77 percent of his passes while post a healthy 8.2 yards per attempt. He didn't find the end zone and mustered just one pass play longer than 21 yards, but he took care of the ball and avoided costly mistakes. Now that he's displayed that he can fill in competently enough to allow the team's other strengths to lead, Foles will lead the Eagles into next week's NFC championship game against either the Saints or the Vikings.

Head coach Doug Pederson reiterated Tuesday that Foles will be the Eagles' starting quarterback during the postseason, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earning the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs afforded the Eagles a first-round bye, and they'll use it to regroup around Foles, whose effectiveness devolved in each of his three starts in place of Carson Wentz (knee). In Week 17 against the Cowboys, in particular, Foles completed four of 11 passes for 39 yards and one interception before handing the reigns to second-year signal caller Nate Sudfeld, who ended the day 19-for-23 passing for 134 yards. With two weeks to prepare, Foles and the Eagles will host the first game of the divisional round on Jan. 13 at 4:35 p.m. ET.
