Rapoport: Multiple Teams Interested if Rams Deal Foles

Friday, March 4

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins will all be interested if the Rams decide to deal Foles.

Foles Could Benefit From New Team

Despite a woeful 69.0 passer rating to go with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2015, there's reason to believe Foles can get back on track. As recently as 2013, the 27-year-old tossed 27 touchdowns to only two picks playing in Kelly's system.

Per Spotrac, the rather club-friendly deal Foles is under in Los Angeles features a mere $1.75 million in salary, which becomes fully guaranteed on March 13. The kicker is the $6 million roster bonus Foles is due if the Rams keep him through March 16.

With plenty of size, a nice touch on deep passes and at least some indication from his past he can be a franchise QB, Foles may simply need to have a change of scenery to find his groove.

If the Rams do pull off a trade, speculation will persist that they'll draft a signal-caller in the first round of this year's draft. Although L.A. has the 15th overall selection, it has two second-round picks as ammunition to move up and take one of the top prospects.
