NFL Trade Rumors: Nick Foles on the trading block

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams are looking to get rid of quarterback Nick Foles a year after trading for him, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio. With several teams looking for new quarterbacks, the Rams should be able to find a trade partner at some point this offseason.

One source with knowledge of the dynamics already has predicted that Foles likely will be gone by the start of training camp, and that he definitely will not be on the team before Week One.

Foles hasn't exactly blown anyone away, only having really thrived under Chip Kelly and even there producing some duds. But he's still shown he can at least get under center and run an offense, kind of, and that's worth something in an NFL that is constantly looking for new quarterbacks.

On the one hand, that's more competition for Mike Glennon on the market. On the other hand, that leaves the L.A. Rams with Case Keenum and Sean Mannion as their prospective starters. The Rams have the fifteenth pick, so it's not exactly a certainty they'll be able to pick a quarterback they like. And Mike Glennon is exactly the kind of quarterback who can keep Jeff Fisher's team mired in the mediocrity he seems to adore.
