Nick Foles

Nick Foles' Philadelphia-area house is now up for sale

Nick Foles' Philadelphia-area house is now up for sale

Philadelphia, you can now own the very home Nick Foles lived in when he won the city’s only Super Bowl.

After his big-money free agency move to Jacksonville, Foles and his family have now moved into a beautiful five-bedroom home in his new city, so it’s time to put his old digs up for sale. Here's a look at his South Jersey home on the market: 

The Super Bowl MVP moved into this Haddonfield, New Jersey house in May of 2017 and paid what some would consider a modest $700,000 for it. He had signed a two-year deal with the Eagles in March, which ended up being worth just north of $16 million.

This four-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on .31 acres and has 3,228 square feet of living space. The main features include a kitchen with a center island, an incredible master wing of the house, with two massive closets and a custom bathroom and a spacious finished basement, great for inviting over some friends to watch an Eagles game.

Here are some photos from the listing, which is for $799,000.

For an NFL player who had made about $15 million in his career when he bought the house, you might have expected something more extravagant. However, it's just about a 20-minute drive from Lincoln Financial Field, and only on a two-year deal, this is a nice home in a good area that allowed Nick and his wife, Tori, to get settled and begin a family.

With Foles as an absolute legend in the city of Philadelphia, whoever buys this home will have the ultimate ice-breaker for anyone who visits. For Nick and his family, we hate to see you officially move away from town, but we wish you nothing but the best.

2019 Eagles preseason schedule features matchup vs. Nick Foles

2019 Eagles preseason schedule features matchup vs. Nick Foles

The Eagles will face their former Super Bowl MVP in Week 2 of the 2019 preseason, when they head to Jacksonville to take on Nick Foles and the Jaguars. 

The NFL announced part of the preseason schedule (dates and times TBA) on Tuesday afternoon: 

Week 1: vs. Titans 
Week 2: at Jaguars
Week 3: vs. Ravens
Week 4: at Jets 

All four of the Eagles’ preseason opponents this season are from the AFC. The matchup against Foles will be the biggest draw of the preseason in quite some time. Foles left for Jacksonville this offseason when he signed a four-year, $88 million deal to become the Jags' new starting QB. There will be plenty of emotions for a meaningless preseason game. 

The Eagles will host the Ravens in Week 3 of the preseason after hosting them for a few days of joint practices. Doug Pederson said at the owners meetings in Phoenix that the Eagles would host the Ravens this summer. The last time the Eagles played host to a team in training camp was in 2017, when they hosted the Dolphins. The Eagles felt like they got enough work in that week that their starters didn’t play as much in the third preseason game, which is usually the one where they get the most work. 

As always, the Eagles will finish their preseason against the Jets. 

The NFL will likely release its entire 2019 regular-season schedule next week, but we already know the Eagles' opponents, home and away. We’re just waiting for dates and times: 

Home: Giants, Redskins, Cowboys, Bears, Lions, Patriots, Jets, Seahawks.

Road: Giants, Redskins, Cowboys, Vikings, Packers, Bills, Dolphins, Falcons.

Jeff Lurie explains why Eagles decided to free Nick Foles

Jeff Lurie explains why Eagles decided to free Nick Foles

PHOENIX — During Jeffrey Lurie’s nearly 38-minute session with reporters on Tuesday evening at the annual league meetings, the Eagles’ owner showed the most emotion when talking about Nick Foles. 

As he began to speak, his eyes started to well up just enough that at least a few reporters in front of him took notice. After all, this is Nick Foles we’re talking about. 

“Nick, as you all know, exceptional person,” Lurie said. “There’s no understating it. Exceptional person. It was hard. We went through every alternative we could think of as an organization on how to proceed here. Really, in the end, I think, Nick really did want to have a team to take control of and be the guy.”

The Eagles could have slapped a franchise tag on Foles. They could have done that and then tried to ship him off to a team of their choosing instead of letting him become an unrestricted free agent. Lurie, on Tuesday, said it wouldn’t have been right to franchise Foles. 

Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman at the combine on Feb. 27 (two weeks before the new league year) announced the Eagles’ intentions to let Foles hit free agency. 

Lurie was asked about his role in that decision and the timing of it: 

Certainly, Howie and I had long discussions about it. We thought the sooner we do it, the better because we wanted to give Nick every opportunity to be in the best possible situation and not have a team worry that we were potentially going to keep him and not have the opportunity to start, because there aren’t that many opportunities. We were also, to be honest about it, hoping that he would not end up with the Giants or the Redskins. That was part of it. We were very confident he was going to play for Jacksonville. 

That last part is pretty interesting. While Lurie and the Eagles clearly wanted to do right by Foles, I wonder what would have happened if one of the teams in the division became the front-runner to land Foles. Would they then have been more likely to franchise tag Foles and then pick his destination for him? 

That, of course, wasn’t the case. By the end of that week in Indy, the rest of the NFL world figured out what the Eagles already knew: Foles was going to Jacksonville. 

Lurie said he vouched for Foles to other teams, who asked him: “What’s Nick like?” and “Can he be dynamic for anyone but you?” 

Maybe in an alternate universe, Foles could have stayed in Philadelphia as the Eagles’ franchise quarterback. But in this universe, the Eagles have Carson Wentz and seem completely committed to signing him to a mega contract that will alter the future of the franchise.

But it sounds like Nick is welcome back for a visit any time. 

“He’s a legend in Philadelphia, he will always be,” Lurie said. “He will be a part of our family forever.”
