contracts can always be renegotiated if the player is willing.

Plus, as you know, Foles is under contract next year, so the Eagles could do nothing, and just keep him. Yes, they will get trade offers for high round draft picks, which are tempting, but in the end, I think they will keep him.

No, no they can't. The final 3 years of his contract is void if he's still on the roster come February 2019, meaning, he becomes an unrestricted free agent. Meaning, the Eagles would pass up an opportunity to get something for Foles, whose trade value is through the roof right now. The Eagles could possibly get a first rounder for him, or at least the picks back that they don't have in this year's draft. You think the Eagles would turn down that opportunity to pick up two players (maybe even more) who could come in and make an impact for this team, just for one player who would be headed back to the bench? And as far as Nick Foles goes, do you honestly think after winning the Super Bowl and being named MVP, that he would truly be OK heading back to the bench, making "backup pay" and never getting an opportunity to start for another team and continue building his own legacy? It's nice to think that Foles is such a humble guy (I don't doubt he is a humble guy), that he's willing to just accept that winning the Super Bowl and MVP honors in that Super Bowl is a one time opportunity for him and he's OK with not having that opportunity ever again, now that he knows he's capable of playing well in the post season? You gotta be insane to think he wouldn't want to go somewhere, get PAID, and be a starter. If a player doesn't want to start in the NFL, then he doesn't belong in the NFL. I truly believe Foles is headed somewhere else, and we'll know in the next few weeks where he lands.

Wrong thinking here. It's not the high priced ones that kill a team ,it's the young one year wonders that want super star money.

Most of the eagles players, including Nick Foles, are signed through the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Here are the free agents:
Eagles 2018 Free Agents: Who played their last game with Eagles as Super Bowl champions? | NJ.com

Most of them, like Bradham, Sproles, Graham, Robinson, Burton and Allen, I’d expect them to try to resign. Some of them are third string guys. Blount was only intended to be a one year stopgap/bandaid signing. Sturgis has already been replaced by Elliott. Majority of their key players are locked up for a couple more years.

The rest of Nick Foles' contract is void if he is still on the roster, 23 days before the start of the new league year in 2019.

Yes, so they could keep him for the 2018 season.

As much as I’d love him to stick around since he is the quarterback to win our first Superbowl for us... I would be surprised if he wasn’t traded. Roseman is a magician when it comes to free agency. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Foles traded for like a 1st and a 3rd round draft pick or something along those lines.

I don't think the Eagles will risk the first part of the season without Wentz, by getting rid of Foles. Wentz is the future, but with his mobile style of play may be injury prone. If he goes down, you don't lose anything bringing in Foles.

No, no, they can't keep him the entire 2018 season and expect to trade him afterward. Let me repeat what I said before. If Nick Foles is on the Eagles' roster 23 days (I believe it's 23 days. If not, it's 29 days) before the start of the new league year, then the last 3 years on his contract is automatically voided and he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The latest possible date that the Eagles could trade Foles away is during the 2018 season, which I believe is usually around week 9. I best, you keep him half of the 2018 season, but if he is sitting on the bench, then what does that do to his trade value? If you want the maximum trade value for Nick Foles, you trade him during this off-season/free agency period. Especially if you think you can get a first rounder for him. Teams may not be as desperate for a QB during the middle of the season, and they may not be in a position to offer as much at that point.

Case in point, with Jimmy Garoppolo. The Patriots pretty much gave him away for a lot less than what Cleveland was offering. Will probably prove to be a huge mistake on the Patriots part down the road.

The Eagles have missing draft picks in this year's draft. They can easily get those picks back by offering Foles up for a trade. Heck, they could probably get even more than those missing draft picks. But, I believe waiting until after free agency and the draft, if not waiting until the new season starts would be a mistake for the Eagles.
