Nick Foles to Jets It is gaining some newfound heat

The Chicago Bears are beginning their march to training camp now as summer arrives. OTAs are wrapping up and mandatory minicamps loom later this month. After that, it will be a month-long wait until July 31st when the team gathers in Lake Forest to get those pads on. Even so, the futures of some players on this roster remain uncertain. Not just the bottom-dwellers clinging to spots either. A few noteworthy vets could be gone under the right circumstances as well. Nick Foles is one of them,  Erik Lambert of Sports Mockery reports.

Typically, the Bears have carried two quarterbacks on the main roster into a season with an emergency third guy on the practice squad. This season could be a rare exception. Foles’ contract is at such a point where cutting him is almost impossible. So the only way the Bears could get out from under it is via a trade. Thus far their attempts at this were met with failure. It looks like the veteran could be stuck on the roster as their #3 behind Andy Dalton and Justin Fields for this year.

That is unless something breaks in the next couple of months.

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN indicated that remains a strong possibility. He listed Foles as one of a handful of players who could be traded soon. He pinpointed the New York Jets as a team worth watching. Foles has ties to GM Joe Douglas and the team has no backups with experience behind #2 overall pick Zach Wilson. New York has more than enough cap space to handle Foles’ contract and a boatload of draft picks next year.

The Jets media are certainly doing their part to make this happen. They’ve been watching practices up to this point and one thing is clear. The backup situation behind Wilson looks as bad on the field as it does on paper. With few appetizing options on the free agent market, a trade for Foles sounds more appealing by the day.
