Colts Release Former Super Bowl MVP

The Indianapolis Colts have released quarterback Nick Foles, the team announced on Friday. 

Foles signed with the Colts as a free-agent last offseason on May 23, 2022 and played three games for the Indianapolis club, including two starts. He was one of three quarterbacks for the Colts last season completing just 59.5 percent of his passes (25/42) for 224 yards, and threw for zero touchdowns against four interceptions. The Colts disastrous 2022 season also included quarterback's Matt Ryan and Sam Ehlinger, who were in and out of the lineup throughout the year. 

The 34-year-old signal-caller, who rose to prominence after leading the Philadelphia Eagles to their lone Super Bowl LII victory against the Brady-led Patriots in 2018, has bounced around the NFL since his infamous run just four seasons ago. 

Foles signed with the Jaguars in 2019 following his Super Bowl MVP season after the Eagles chose Wentz as their starting quarterback moving forward, and played for the Bears/Colts in the last three seasons. 

The former third-rounder by the Eagles in 2012, has appeared in 71 career games with 58 starts for 6 different clubs. He has recorded 12,227 passing yards with 82 touchdowns, and 47 interceptions in his lengthy 10-year career. 

Indianapolis has decided that Foles is no longer necessary in their locker room, especially after they drafted Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson with their No. 4 overall pick last week during the 2023 NFL Draft. 

The Colts also have backups Gardner Minshew and Sam Ehlinger in place if they are needed this season.
