The Philadelphia Eagles have signed QB Nick Foles to a two-year contract. The deal reunites Foles with his first NFL franchise where he found the most success.

Foles was drafted by the Eagles in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft and flourished early on in his career under former Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly especially in the 2013 season in which he led the Eagles to a 10-win season after a 4-12 2012 campaign, throwing 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions. The Eagles traded Foles and draft capital to the Rams for Sam Bradford in the 2015 offseason in a move that ultimately didn’t work out that well for either team.

Foles floundered under former Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher and was released in July following a $6m bonus the Rams doled out. Foles went on to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs on a one-year deal playing in three games and starting one in reserve of QB Alex Smith.
