Nick Foles has saved the Eagles in back-to-back seasons, leading them to the Super Bowl last year and the playoffs this year.
While that has made him a hero in the City of Brotherly Love, it hasn't secured his spot on the Eagles roster.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Eagles are expected to trade Nick Foles this offseason.
There is expected to be plenty of interest in Foles around the NFL, which makes sense considering how bad the NFL Draft class is for QBs and there aren't many top-tier QBs on the free-agent market either.
The #Eagles are going to hand the ball back to franchise QB Carson Wentz whenever this run is over. At that point, they are expected to have a legit trade market for QB Nick Foles. My story: https://t.co/A4fBzXeo9N— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 6, 2019
This makes sense on the one hand because the Eagles would have to pick up a $20 million option this offseason to keep Foles from becoming a free agent. Well, either that or franchise tag him, which would also be a hefty price tag.
They are committed to Carson Wentz as their QB moving forward, so that kind of money on a backup QB is unpalatable for a team that's trying to keep their Super Bowl window open as long as possible.
On the other hand, Foles has been outstanding for the Eagles in relief of Carson Wentz the last two years. Wentz has proven to be injury prone, so having Foles as insurance is a great security blanket.

We'll see what happens in the playoffs, but whenever the Eagles run ends, be it with another Super Bowl or a playoff loss, Foles is expected to be headed out of Philly.
