article imageNFL News and Rumors: Nick Foles to Seattle Seahawks?

By Larry Seely     Jul 28, 2016 in Sports
Seattle - The biggest news out of the NFL this week happened in Los Angeles as the Rams released disgruntled quarterback Nick Foles, not a surprising move considering he played poorly in his only season with the franchise.
The 27-year-old was supposed to guide this franchise into the playoffs after being dealt for former starter Sam Bradford, but after a poor start to the 2016 season, he was replaced as the team leader on offense and trade rumors began.
It appeared the front office was looking for any takers on the days leading up to the players draft in April, but with no takers, releasing the former third round pick this week was in the best option of the organization and will give the young man a good chance to play elsewhere with training camps set to open and several teams with possibly interest.
There's been plenty of speculation as to where he might land and most experts believe Dallas is the likely choice, but one team that desperately needs depth at the position is Seattle. The Seahawks have one of the game's best young quarterbacks in Russell Wilson, but with Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps battling for the number two spot, it leaves the door wide open for a veteran in the league to step in and become the backup.
Foles showed plenty of promise after being selected by Philadelphia. In 28 games with the Eagles, the former Arizona Wildcat blossomed early, throwing 46 touchdowns and just 17 interceptions, leading many NFL experts to believe the best was yet to come, but after being traded, his struggles with a poor offensive line in St Louis showed some weakness in his game, most notably the lack of mobility under pressure and that led to his downgrade as a starter.
The Cowboys have shown a need for a quality backup and it could be his best chance to play in 2016, but winning a Super Bowl is every players dream and that would make the Seahawks his best option if the team comes calling for his services.
