Chicago Bears: 4 teams that should still trade for Nick Foles
Chicago Bears trade targets for Nick Foles: Tennesee Titans
Have you sensed a pattern here yet? The point is that these teams either have a young quarterback that could use the mentorship from a player with Nick Foles’ experience and accolades or in the case of the next two, the team has playoff aspirations and could use a better backup quarterback to sit behind the team’s established starter.
In this case, the Tennessee Titans could use someone behind Ryan Tannehill. The Titans have made the playoffs two years in a row and should have a good shot of making it again in 2021. The team is also rumored to be one of the favorites in landing Julio Jones if traded before the season starts.
Out of the four teams discussed, the Titans have the worst salary cap situation. The team is sitting with only around $3 million in cap space. If the Titans are serously going after Julio Jones then trading for Nick Foles might not even be within the realm of possiblity, but should that trade not happen, making room for Foles $4 million in base salary.
As of now, the Titans backups consist of Logan Woodside and DeShone Kizer. Do not be fooled by Kizer as he is likely the third quarterback and does not bring the same capabilities as Nick Foles does. Woodside was a seventh-round pick in 2018 out of Toledo and has not attempted a regular-season pass. Nick Foles would once again be worth a very late-round pick to a team like the Titans.
