Saturday night, the Chicago Bears took on the Tennessee Titans in their preseason finale, and one particular player might be playing his way out of town — Nick Foles.

Quarterback Nick Foles took the reins as the second half began, and led the offense right down the field in impressive fashion on his very first drive.

Foles went 6-for-7 for 67 yards and a scoring strike to Jesper Horsted on his first drive of the half — Horsted’s second touchdown of the game.

Side note: Horsted’s first touchdown came off the fingertips of Justin Fields in one of the most impressive throws you will see all preseason.

Back to Nick Foles though, as he looked sharp on that opening drive of the half. Make no mistake: teams were watching the Bears’ third quarterback during that drive and remember just how valuable he can be as a No. 2 guy.

One team that might come calling for Foles is the Indianapolis Colts. Yes, reuniting Foles with head coach Frank Reich would make a lot of sense. But, he’d also be teaming up with Carson Wentz once more. Many wonder whether or not that would be a positive for Wentz’s psyche.

The Colts’ quarterback room took a hit on Saturday when rookie Sam Ehlinger was injured and could be out for a little while. Meanwhile, Wentz is just coming back from injury himself. The only dependable quarterback, health-wise, is a second-year passer, backup Jacob Eason.

With the big trade sending Gardner Minshew to the Philadelphia Eagles going down earlier on Saturday, the talks around a Foles trade could start to heat up. Rosters will be cut down to 53 come Tuesday afternoon, and a team in need of a backup quarterback will be on the phone with Ryan Pace in no time.

That team very likely could be Indianapolis, but don’t forget about the Dallas Cowboys. Many were wondering why Dallas wasn’t in on Minshew, with their reserve quarterbacks looking awfully bleak during the preseason and Dak Prescott not being 100 percent.

Dallas makes sense just as much as Indy does. Both could be in on Foles.

In the coming hours, do not be surprised if another quarterback trade goes down. We could see Nick Foles heading to another roster real quick, here, and that would be a victory lap for Pace and company.

Should the Bears be able to get anything in return for Foles’ services, they would be making out pretty well.
