Nick Foles is free. NFL Media announces that the Bears have decided to cut the quarterback.
“Ryan Poles did things in a classy way and Nick appreciates”, even specified the agent of the player to our colleagues.
With Justin Fields as the quarterback of the future and the recent signing of Trevor Siemian, Chicago seemed to have what it needed for the coming year.
Foles, who is still only 33, will therefore be able to try to relaunch his atypical career once again. Drafted in the third round by the Eagles in 2012, then moved to the Rams in 2016 and Chiefs in 2016 before returning to Philadelphia to win the title when he took over from an injured Carson Wentz, the Super Bowl MVP spent the last three years with the Jaguars (2019) then the Bears (2020-2021).
Holder 7 times in Chicago in 2020, he spent last season on the bench behind Andy Dalton and Justin Fields. He still started a game, with an honest record of 24/35, 250 yards and 1 touchdown. The Bears won that day against Seattle.
Foles should find a chance again, at least on a bench to start.
Tea #Bears have agreed to release QB Nick Foles, his agent Justin Schulman confirmed. The team’s new regime decided to allow Foles to find his next home rather than continue to search for a trade partner. “Ryan Poles did the classy thing and Nick appreciates it,” Schulman said.
