Chicago Bears Reject Trade Offers & Release Quarterback

The Chicago Bears are letting Nick Foles walk for free after the team tried to trade the veteran quarterback throughout the draft and were unsuccessful. Foles' agent Justin Schulman was very happy to hear the news for his client as now they try and find a new home for the 33-year-old QB.

Foles' agent went as far as calling Bears general manager Ryan Poles classy and loved seeing him do the right thing after a trade never materialized. Foles has spent the past two seasons in the windy city and now is likely to find a new home outside of the NFC North. Last season he only started one game and back in 2020 he started seven, appearing in two more while battling it out with Mitchell Trubisky for minutes. Now the Bears are Justin Fields team and from all accounts that's smart business decision from management.

Expect to see Foles receive some decent contract offers as he'll likely catch on with a good team as their back up and provide some experience to the position. He hasn't shown well of late with the Bears or Jacksonville Jaguars back in 2019, so here's hoping he can turn things around in the back nine of his career.

Foles owns a 29-27 career regular season record and has thrown for 14,003 yards, 82 TD and 42 INT. Foles is a Super Bowl champion back in 2017 with the Philadelphia Eagles and you can bet your bottom dollar his agent will be bringing that up in some upcoming talks. Whether teams care about something that happened in 2017 is another story...
