Nick Foles – Chicago Bears

When the news of the Carson Wentz injury broke, rumors begin to swirl about a reunion with former Super Bowl champion Nick Foles. The veteran has been asked about this and it’s obvious the quarterback wants out of the Chicago Bears.

While going to the Indianapolis Colts to save Wentz once again might be a storyline the NFL is looking for, it seems unlikely.

For the Carolina Panthers, a far better option would be bringing in Foles to help and sit behind Sam Darnold.

Despite his struggles the past few seasons, Foles is a great backup who won a ring in his role and will forever be remembered by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Outside of the Eagles or Wentz, I am not sure there is any person or organization who wouldn’t want Foles as their emergency quarterback. When there aren’t any expectations he thrives and is capable of going on magical runs.

Many people forget Foles not only won the Super Bowl but the next season was an Alshon Jeffrey drop away from going on another playoff run. Perhaps one that would have established him as a long-term option in Philadelphia.

Regardless, Foles is now on the market and the perfect option for Carolina. A player who can both help Darnold and replace him if needed.
