Rams have signed quarterback Nick Foles to a two-year extension through 2017 according to Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network.
Foles had one of the best years ever for an NFL quarterback in 2013 as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles, throwing for 27 touchdowns and only two interceptions, but fell back to earth in 2014. The Rams, exasperated by the back-to-back ACL surgeries for former No.1 overall pick Sam Bradford, swapped QBs with the Eagles this offseason.
ESPN stated the following about the deal:
The extension is for two years on top of the one year Foles had remaining on his rookie contract and could keep the quarterback with the Rams through the 2017 season.
Sources told ESPN that the deal is worth $24.5 million, giving Foles three years and $26 million when combined with the existing year. The 2017 season can be voided based on team wins and if he makes the Pro Bowl, a source said.
