Oddsmakers post odds for Nick Foles and Antonio Brown's next teams

Oddsmakers post odds for Nick Foles and Antonio Brown's next teams

Doug Pederson made it abundantly clear on Tuesday that Carson Wentz would be the quarterback of the Eagles moving forward (see story). Additionally, Nick Foles made it abundantly clear that he wants to be a No. 1 QB going forward (see story). Looks like teams should start lining up for the services of the Super Bowl MVP.

Now, it’s not that simple. There are four things that can happen with Foles.

1. The Eagles exercise the $20 million team option and Foles buys out of it for $2 million to become a free agent.

2. The Eagles decline to exercise the team option and Foles becomes a free agent.

3. The Eagles exercise the $20 million team option and Foles remains an Eagle as a backup to Wentz.

4. The Eagles could slap a franchise tag on Foles for the 2019 season that would pay Foles around $25 million with the hopes of trading him or keeping him as a backup.

Since the most likely scenarios involve Foles joining another team, the oddsmakers are already having their say on where that may be.

Obviously, the most beneficial scenario for the Eagles is getting the framework of a trade in place. However, Foles would be hurting whichever team he’d be going to, having to give up value to bring him to town. Either way, here’s hoping he goes to the AFC.

Just for fun, also according to Bet DSI, it doesn’t look like the Eagles will be in the market for Antonio Brown, as expected.

There’s a lot that’s going to happen once the free agency signing period begins on March 13 and it’s almost certain we’ll be saying goodbye to a Philadelphia sports legend in the prime of his career.

Eagles at Redskins live: Highlights and analysis from NFL Week 15 game

Eagles at Redskins live: Highlights and analysis from NFL Week 15 game

8:28 a.m.: Good morning! It’s game day and I have had my coffee, so we’re good to go. The only injury question heading into today for the Eagles is about Ronald Darby, who is questionable after suffering a hip flexor injury in practice on Friday. The Eagles already ruled out Lane Johnson (ankle), Nelson Agholor (knee), Jordan Howard (shoulder) and Derek Barnett (ankle). 

The Eagles play at 1 p.m. and if they win, it’ll be worth watching the Rams-Cowboys game at 4:25 p.m. If the Eagles win and the Cowboys lose, it’ll set up a situation where the Eagles can clinch the division against the Cowboys in Week 16 and basically give themselves a Week 17 bye. 

But first the Eagles have to take care of business against Washington. Here are five matchups to watch.

Navy pulls off iconic Philly Special at the Linc

Let's just say, the Navy Midshipmen certainly know how to win over a crowd in Philadelphia.

On Saturday during the 120th Army-Navy game, a familiar play call was seen.

You might have seen it before. There's a statue immortalizing it in front of the Linc. It happened during Super Bowl LII. Anything come to mind?

That's right. The Philly Special.

What an awesome moment in the middle of one of the best days in sports. Check it out:
