Nick Foles joins Colts as backup QB, reunites with head coach Frank Reich

Nick Foles joins Colts as backup QB, reunites with head coach Frank Reich

The Indianapolis Colts confirmed via Twitter on Monday the signing of quarterback Nick Foles, who will reunite with head coach Frank Reich, and play second fiddle to Matt Ryan.

Foles and Coach Reich won a Super Bowl together during their time with the Philadelphia Eagles. The 33-year-old QB famously stepped in for an injured Carson Wentz to beat Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

Philadelphia was reportedly interested in signing Foles to a third stint with the franchise before the QB agreed to a two-year deal with Indy. Eagles wanted to trade Gardner Minshew and sign Foles but ultimately decided to stick with their quarterback room, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Nick Foles is the perfect backup QB

Foles has yet to prove that he can be anything more than a backup quarterback, a position at which he has proved to be one of the best. The Chicago Bears released Foles on May 1 after acquiring free agent QB Trevor Siemian to back up Justin Fields.

Chicago originally acquired Foles two years ago in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jacksonville had signed Foles to a four-year, $88 million contract in 2019, but he suffered a broken collarbone in the season opener that saw him lose his spot to rookie Minshew.

After starting just seven games in 2020, Foles only logged one start last season. Throughout his 10 NFL seasons, Foles has thrown for 14,003 yards, and 82 touchdowns to 43 interceptions.
