NFC East Watch: Foles Not Listening to Trade Rumors

Eagles QB Nick Foles has reportedly drawn interest from three teams

First there were the reports that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly would do everything in his power to try to trade up to land Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, who was recruited to the Ducks by Kelly. Then there were reports that several teams were interested in making a deal for the Eagles’ current quarterback, Nick Foles.

But Foles believes he’ll be back in Philly in 2015.

"Yeah you hear about it," Foles said this week, per Eliot Shorr-Parks of "You are going to hear about it every single year. That's just part of it. The main word is 'rumor.' You can't put too much into it... I plan on being in Philly."

Foles was limited to eight games in 2014, after suffering a fractured collarbone, and finished with 2,163 yards passing, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

"I only listen to Chip Kelly. That's what is most important. He is the one that will make the decision," Foles said. "Right now all I am going to do is work because I plan on being back in Philadelphia and playing with my team. That's all I ever thought. So that is what I plan on doing and I'm not looking at it any other way."
