Mike Garafolo reported that the Colts and QB Nick Foles are working on a deal, The sides will continue to talk and the expectation is it'll get done early next week. Foles and Frank Reich headed toward a reunion.
Frank Reich, Bears coach, said this week that the Colts would have interest in adding a veteran quarterback, and of the quarterbacks available, Foles would make the most sense. Foles was Super Bowl LII MVP as the Eagles' starting quarterback, with Reich as the offensive coordinator.
Foles has spent the last two years with the Bears and has also spent time with the Jaguars, Chiefs and Rams in addition to his two separate stints with the Eagles.
After acquiring Nick Foles before the 2020 season, from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a 4th round pick to compete for a starting job, Foles' was ultimately waived by the Bears a few weeks ago.
Heading into the 2021 season, the Chicago Bears selected Quarterback Justin Fields in the 1st round, along with adding former Bear Andy Dalton to a 1-year deal during the off-season. Former Bears GM Ryan Pace failed to find a trade partner and Foles played most of the season as a backup to Dalton and Fields, besides a late-season week 16 start in Seattle. Foles did lead the Bears to a late-game victory in a snowy Lumen Field. Foles posted a modest performance going 24-35 with 250 yards passing and 1TD along with a victory in his only start in 2022.
It was, however, very clear that Nick Foles would not be part of the future in Chicago. He will get his chance with the Colts, who have a lot of question still left unanswered at QB.
