Chicago Bears Trade Candidate: Nick Foles, QB

After signing former Saints QB Trevor Siemian to a two-year, four million dollar deal, the Bears no longer have much need for the Super Bowl LII MVP. In six games last year for the Saints, Siemian threw for 1,154 yards, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. A more mobile quarterback then Nick Foles, Siemian is a serviceable QB2 for the Bears entering 2022.

Carrying a $10.6 million dollar cap hit in 2022, Foles is one of the league’s most overpaid backups. Electing to pay Foles his 4 million dollar roster bonus on the 5th League day of 2022, Poles incentivized teams to pursue a trade for Foles. Without having to pay the final roster bonus from Foles’ three-year contract, other teams around the League should now have show more interest in Foles’ services.

Chicago will be lucky to recoup anything better than a 6th or 7th round pick for Foles. Despite such little trade value, it is still worth trading him for any draft pick they can get. If it’s a more team with more draft capital, and a need for a backup QB, a day 3 pick for Foles would be a win/win trade both teams.

Hopefully, for Poles, he is able to make a deal for Foles prior to the draft.
