Nick Foles Has “Never Felt Better, Mentally or Physically” … Just in Case the Colts (Or Anyone Else) Were Curious

Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears could make up for their failure to move Nick Foles off the roster earlier in the offseason with a summertime trade to a QB-needy team seeking depth and experience. But it will take some good fortune and some even better timing.

With the news being Carson Wentz is out indefinitely because of an injury suffered on Thursday, perhaps the Indianapolis Colts are that team. After all, Foles and Head Coach Frank Reich have a past together that dates back to their time with the Eagles.

But if that isn’t enough, Bears salesperson Head Coach Matt Nagy has a pitch for you:

Good teammate? Check. Consummate pro despite a demotion? Double check. Someone who his coach understands could be valuable in a different role elsewhere? Triple check. A player who has “never felt better, mentally or physically” as he does now? Check. Mate. If I didn’t know any better, it sounds like Nagy knows something good could happen if he puts on his best sales pitch. Hey … it couldn’t hurt!

Foles is a lot of things to a lot of people. To Eagles fans, he is an icon who brought a title to Philly. But to Bears fans, Foles represents a failed bridge to what was to be the next quarterback-of-the-future. However, the story doesn’t have to end that way for Chicago’s football fans. Especially if GM Ryan Pace can get anything of substance in a trade for Foles. So, stay tuned.
