    IMO Franchise Tags players should not be allowed to be traded. Isnt exact the opposite of what the franchise tag is all about, securing the player for a season while you negotiate a long term deal?

    it would be a rotten thing to do to nick foles after how much he has done for philly , if nick wants to leave then ok find the best deal for him , if not , their is no need to get rid of him , I would say if the eagles treat foles well it will not only show class , but intrinsic value to being a eagle in the first place , it nicks decision I think !!

    Foles is better, why don’t they understand this? Just because they gave up insane amount to move up to draft Wentz doesn’t mean sticking with him is the right choice.

    I don't think Foles is a facade of a nice guy. He's the real deal. It's not inconceivable that he would stay with Philly in a backup role--for the identical reasons that you mention. He likes the team and the area and it's mutual. The agents and lawyers might not relish such a scenario, but not everyone is solely motivated by money. If Wentz proves to be durable, Foles is always an attractive trade--particularly mid season, when someone loses a good QB, finding themselves in a trick bag. Just have to wait and see, not lose sleep about it. If I had to bet, I would say he's traded, but I wouldn't rule out him being a high-priced backup for at least another season. In that scenario, Sudfeld would probably be traded.

    Wentz is already injury prone. 2 seasons, 2 season ending injuries. I think dump Wentz, keep Foles as he won them the Super Bowl and got them into the playoffs again this year. Wentz won’t do anything for the Eagles.

    I feel like the Eagles are in a love triangle, Wentz is the wife while Foles is the mistress whom fulfills their needs

    The Eagles should trade Wentz for draft picks and see how Foles plays out,

    The Eagles already claimed Wentz is their guy. So it would be a sham if they tried to claim they really wanted to keep Foles.

    i dont think the eagles are playing games w / the qbs, they are probably seriously debating whether carson is the future, or is he too injury prone

    Carson can’t WENtz. Big mistake the Eagles will be doing.

    As an eagles fan, I think it would be good to keep him. The only thing is the fact there is the maximum salary cap.

    If you have full confidence in Carson let Nick go where he wants. It contradicts your claim in having confidence in Carson.

    The point that Chris mentioned is the same one that Steven A mentioned last week which is the combination of the salaries of Wentz and Foles is about the going rate of a Star Quarterback on a team with that said I would love to see them bring back Nick and give it one more year to see if Carson can stay healthy all year and if he cannot then you move forward with Nick. But Nick has already stated he loves the team and the City and the fans and obviously the team City and fans love him so what I don't agree with in this conversation is that Nick should be out for blood. He understands that he is valuable and also knows the situation that the Eagles drafted Carson to be the future and if he really wants to go play somewhere else then I don't see any reason why he wouldn't be okay with the Eagles trying to get something in return. This is a team that gave him a second shot when he was considering retirement and put him in this situation to win a Superbowl. Nick is a very humble man and I'm sure thankful so I could see Nick being completely okay with the Eagles tagging him and trying to get back a first-rounder or more

    Foles is the man.. He's a better qb n smarter n he doesn't get hurt. Spreads the ball around n players play better. I think wentz will have a short career in fball. I think that injury he had last yr. Messed him up. Even if he goes somewhere else, I will cheer for him . he's a class act.

    Foles is more "Battle Worthy" than Wentz. Wentz has won many games. but Foles has won the most important games! Foles probably gonna sign with a new team, but thats how it goes. Salary cap is a real thing.

    What if Wentz wants Foles on the team.. Batman and Robin.. They need each other.. Wentz hasn't said he want Foles gone.. What if Foles flops for another team than it wasn't worth it.. But the Eagles are giving Foles value by doing this.. Hey I want Philly Philly.. both Wentz and Foles.. Eagle Strong..

    Trade Wentz, draft a speed receiver and keep Foles.
