Nick Foles pays the Eagles $2M buyout payment via cashiers check

That being said, the Eagles recently informed Foles that they would be picking up his $20 million option for the 2019 season, in an effort to trade him now that the National Football League offseason has begun. The Eagles have informed Foles they are picking up that option, according to ESPN's Tim McManus. Schefter reported the Eagles hope to land a third round draft pick for Foles. He is poised to become an unrestricted free agent pending a potential buy out and the use of the franchise tag, which has caused the debate to rage: Is Foles more valuable to Philadelphia than Wentz?

And it stems from a belief that Foles could be headed to a division rival, according to Fansided's Jason Cole. He is expected to command a contract worth more than $18 million per season.

Nick Foles #9 of the Philadelphia Eagles looks to pass against the Washington Redskins during the first half at FedExField on December 30, 2018 in Landover, Maryland.

Shortly after that report made the rounds, multiple players came forward bashing the narrative and defending Wentz, with tight end Zach Ertz going as far as to call Wentz a "great leader". The franchise tag for quarterbacks is expected to be around $25 million for next season. "He's had his ass kissed his whole life, and sometimes acts like he's won 10 Super Bowls, when he hasn't played in, let alone won, a playoff game yet". If the Bengals decide to rebuild, they too could be an option, especially if Eagles quarterback coach Press Taylor goes to join his brother Zac, who is the new head coach for the franchise.

Wentz said he would learn from that report. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

Wentz has missed the end of the last two seasons, suffering a serious knee injury in late 2017 and then sitting with a back injury in 2018. If the Eagles have their way, it will be to a team far away from the NFC East.
