After two miraculous seasons in Philadelphia over the past two years, quarterback Nick Foles is all set to become a free agent this offseason due to the Eagles' lack of available cap space. In a year when the number of quality quarterbacks available in the draft is quite thin, his services are expected to attract a variety of suitors, especially given his pedigree of winning on the biggest stage. Here are the four teams that Foles would fit best on in 2019.
4. Washington Redskins
While signing Foles would make Washington seem as unstable at quarterback as the Cleveland Browns recently were for two decades, he may be their best option if they want to build off the momentum they created before Alex Smith and Colt McCoy went down with injuries. Smith's injury was absolutely brutal and has put his playing career in jeopardy, while Colt McCoy has not done enough to prove that he can be a starter on a winning team.
3. New York Giants
While I fully expect to see the Giants draft Dwayne Haskins and keep Eli Manning around for another season, there is a world where Nick Foles could fit on the team.
Let's remember that general manager Dave Gettleman wasn't in love with any of the quarterbacks in last year's loaded draft, and if he feels the same way this time around, New York could go with an offensive lineman at No. 6, or even trade the pick for more draft capital. In that case, the Giants would probably look to the 30-year-old Foles as their best solution at quarterback in the long term, and he would likely cost less than the $23.2 million cap hit that Eli carries for 2019.
2. Miami Dolphins
With the firing of head coach Adam Gase and the introduction of a new regime in Miami, Ryan Tannehill's days are numbered. Couple that with the fact that the Dolphins are picking 13th in a thin quarterback draft, and all signs point to adding a new signal caller via free agency.
Admittedly, Miami will not have a ton of cap space this offseason, but with Tannehill failing to produce under two different coaches, it's time to move on. And who better to bring in than a guy who's won a Super Bowl and has thrived under two completely different coaches in Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson?
1. Jacksonville Jaguars
This again would take some clever maneuvering when it comes to the cap, but no team needs a quarterback more than Jacksonville. The 2018 season proved that the Jaguars made a huge mistake in extending Blake Bortles, as he threw for just 2,718 yards in 13 games and tossed a mere 13 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. With the talent around him in the backfield and on defense, there's no reason why the team shouldn't have found itself back in the playoffs last year. If this team really wants to have any kid of sustained success, they will scrape the money together for Foles.
