Foles agreed to a two-year contract with the Eagles on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After spending the last two seasons in Missouri with the Rams and Chiefs, Foles will head back to the place where he began his career in 2012. The 27-year-old once looked like he might be the permanent solution at quarterback for the Eagles after tossing 27 touchdowns against just two interceptions over 13 games in 2013, but he regressed the following season and appears to have settled into backup duties at this stage of his career. Foles will serve as the understudy for second-year signal caller Carson Wentz, and his addition will likely prompt the Eagles to trade well-regarded backup Chase Daniel to another team this offseason.

Foles, whose team option was declined by the Chiefs on Mar. 9 and is therefore an unrestricted free agent, is the subject of interest from the Bucs, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The feeling is allegedly mutual, reports Fowler, citing unnamed sources. Foles would presumably slide into the No. 2 quarterback role vacated by Mike Glennon, who inked a three-year contract with the Bears on Friday. The 28-year-old Foles completed 36 of 55 passes for 410 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions over three games in 2016 as Alex Smith's backup in Kansas City, and enjoyed his best pro season while a teammate of new Bucs receiver DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia back in 2013.

Foles will become a free agent after his team option was declined by the Chiefs, NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Foles had a quality season in Kansas City in 2016 as far as backups, as he won his only start against Jacksonville, and helped preserve a victory in a win over Indianapolis the week before. When it was all said and done, the fifth-year quarterback threw for 410 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. Foles is a more-than-serviceable backup with plenty of experience starting games, so there should be no shortage of suitors in free agency.

Foles took three snaps under center in Week 17, but failed to record a stat in the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Foles hasn't put his name on the ledger since Week 9 against the Jaguars, but did post a 105.9 quarterback rating in two starts this season. He's owed a large base salary in 2018, meaning he will likely either need to negotiate a new contract with the Chiefs or he will probably be looking for a new backup job elsewhere next season.

Foles (elbow) practiced fully Friday and does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Though Foles will be available Sunday, he'll revert to backup status now that Alex Smith has been re-installed as the Chiefs' starting QB.

Foles (elbow) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Alex Smith in line to start Sunday against the Panthers, Foles is off the Week 10 fantasy radar, in any case.

Foles completed 20 of 33 passes for 187 yards and a score in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

There was some talk of Foles, a third-round pick of Andy Reid's in Philadelphia, potentially giving the injured Alex Smith a run for his money for the starting job. Sunday's performance responded with a resounding "Meh!" Foles uncorked some beautiful touch throws, including a 23-yard touchdown to Albert Wilson, but he also botched a second, point-blank score with a short-armed pass and was rescued by a Jacksonville drop of an early would-be interception on a badly overthrown pass. Any criticism of Foles' solid but unspectacular play should be tempered by the fact that the team was without its top two backs, Jeremy Maclin was injured early, and tight end Travis Kelce got himself thrown out of the game. Still, there was little there to make fans forget about Alex Smith.

Foles is slated to start Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, fellow QB Alex Smith won't be available to back Foles up Sunday, setting the stage for Tyler Bray to handle the team's No. 2 QB duties. While Foles looked sharp in relief of Smith in this past Sunday's win over the Colts, he remains a speculative play in Week 9 fantasy lineups, though he's certainly worth considering by those scrambling for signal-caller help on a week in which six NFL teams are on bye.

Foles completed 16 of 23 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns after replacing a concussed Alex Smith in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Foles showed an excellent rapport with his receivers, connecting with tight end Travis Kelce for a 14-yard second-quarter touchdown, and hitting wide receiver Tyreek Hill from 34 yards out in third. The 27-year-old quarterback has previously served as a starter for the Eagles and Rams, and has a 55:27 career touchdown-to-interception ratio. He'll have some upside against the Jaguars if Smith isn't cleared to play by next week.

Foles completed just two of his five passes for 65 yards in Saturday's third preseason game against the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

While he completed just two passes, one of them to Tyreek hill went for 58 yards. Given that he's cemented as the No. 2 option for the Chiefs this season, the team decided to give both Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan a little run to see what they have behind Foles.
