Last week I wrote about Nick Foles’ soon not to be future with the Rams. Well today, I came across an Inquisitr article that claims he could be traded. According to the article the Forty-Niners or the Cardinals could be possible landing spots. The article did also mention the Jets if there is no settlement in their stalemate with Ryan Fitzpatrick.
While I have no problem with the Rams and Foles parting ways, I do have some concerns with them just cutting him and not having control of his landing spot. I don’t like seeing him picked up by one of their divisional opponents so that he comes back to hurt the Rams twice a season. This could be the replay of when Kurt Warner after he went to the Cardinals where for five years he went a total of 8-2 over the Rams. No, I do not want to go down that road again.
Yet, if he did go to a division rival. let it be the Cardinals. There he would be playing behind starter Carson Palmer and backup Drew Stanton, and most likely never set foot on the field. Where if he goes to the Niners, he could end up as a starting under his former coach Chip Kelly.
Yet, if the Rams are looking for a trade, they could look in the direction of the Jets. It may not come to fruition, but if the Jets and Fitzpatrick do not break their stalemate, a trade could be possible. I do not think that Jets are ready to through their season on the back of Geno Smith. Or, they can wait for the start of training camp because teams will be looking for a quarterback.
Whether it is by trade or cut, Nick Foles will not with the Rams at the start of the season.
