While the Philadelphia Eagles see Nick Foles as a genuine option to be their quarterback of the future, the team now has two QBs seemingly more fitted to run coach Chip Kelly's system, Mike Garafolo of USA Today.

The Eagles signed free-agent Dennis Dixon on Thursday. Dixon played under Kelly at Oregon in 2007 when Kelly was the offensive coordinator.

So it's in the realm of possibility Foles could be traded. And if so, the Kansas City Chiefs could be the destination.

The Chiefs and new coach Andy Reid are interested in acquiring Foles if he becomes available, according to a person informed of the team's thinking. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs haven't discussed their thoughts publicly, said the team is working on plans to add a quarterback and considers Foles a possibility.

Kelly maintains Foles and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job, despite their differences in style. The person informed of the Chiefs' plans said the Eagles have not told Kansas City that Foles is available.
