Schefter: "Several Teams Interested" In Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles

Could the Rams add some additional 2016 NFL Draft capital by moving their 2015 Week 1 starting QB?

It's the time of year when you just copy tweets for your lede:

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, "several teams" are interested in making a move for Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles:

It's an interesting situation. Foles is persona non grata right now for the Rams. He's fallen behind QB Case Keenum on the position depth chart. Second-year Sean Mannion has to be itching for a chance to leapfrog both. And of course, the Rams are now bringing in the strongest candidate of all with the #1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft whether that be North Dakota St. QB Carson Wentz or Cal QB Jared Goff.

But that all being the case...what could the Rams realistically get for Foles? They got Keenum for just a seventh-round pick, and he's found himself seemingly more valuable than Foles. How high of a Day 3 pick could the Rams really get for Foles? And would any draft pick be worth moving for since Foles doesn't really have a place in the Rams' long-term plans where a new draft pick at least might be?

It's an accelerated fall from grace for Foles after being heralded following the trade the Rams made with the Philadelphia Eagles to secure him in exchange for Sam Bradford just a year ago.
