article imageNFL Rumors: Nick Foles to Arizona Cardinals?

By Larry Seely     Jun 12, 2016 in Sports
Phoenix - Its been a big off season for the LA Rams with the move back to Southern California and the team making a trade with Tennessee to acquire the first overall pick in the NFL Draft.
With that pick the team decided to take Cal quarterback Jared Goff, making the young man the new face of the franchise and putting their playoff hopes on the youngster, but the move also made some rumblings within the locker room as Nick Foles, the former starter, is now the odd man out.
Most experts believed the front office would deal the 27-year-old during the draft weekend in April, but apparently the asking price was too high and little interest was found, but that could change as the league prepares for the opening of training camps next month, especially with teams like San Francisco and the NY Jets having question marks at the quarterback position.
Recent speculation has Arizona as a possible destination and a closer look at the teams depth chart has the Cardinals in position to make a deal in the coming weeks. Carson Palmer is 36-years-old and despite playing at a high level, the veteran is just one big hit away from this team going form a Super Bowl contender, to a team that could play below .500 football.
Foles burst on the scene in 2013 with the Philadelphia Eagles. The youngster was thrown into starting duty and finished the year with 27 touchdown passes and just two interceptions, but injuries limited the signal caller to just eight games the following year and a trade to the Rams in 2015.
Last year he struggled with his new team, completing a career low 56.4 percent and just seven touchdowns in eleven games, leading management to look in a new direction for a leader to help this franchise into the future.
Foles is still young and has shown when in the right situation he can perform. A change of scenery is best for the former Arizona Wildcats star and a move to the Cardinals could be just what he needs to resurrect his career, even if he needs to become a backup for another year or two.
