Summary

Nick Foles was a trade target of the Bears in the offseason with dead cap contract allegiance through at least two seasons, if not three going forward. Foles is barely a winning quarterback in the regular season of his career, finding minimal success outside of his time in Philadelphia, spanning five of his eight seasons. Foles was off to a rough start in Jacksonville last season, his latest stop on his now six-team NFL tour, with avoiding interceptions and a decent completion rate as his lone plus metrics. Foles has started more than 10 games in a season just once and his boom-bust nature has been as high-variance of his career as any recent quarterback. Without mobility as a notable trait, Foles mandates a quality system and structure to his game, fostering his passing traits. On the plus side, Matt Nagy and the Bears offense offers both in spades for Foles to succeed in 2020. (April 28)

Bears | Preseason to determine QB1 in Chicago (Tue May 26, 03:11 PM) - Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said Tuesday, May 26, QBs Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles will both see time working with the starters in preseason games.

Our View: Trubisky was supposed to be the franchise quarterback for the Bears but he has disappointed as a pro. Foles has experience and a championship history. He's worked under Nagy before when he was with the Chiefs, so Foles may not take that long to get up to speed. In fact, Foles may just end up winning the starting job. We'll see how this shakes out in training camp.

Bears | Nick Foles quickly picking up Chicago system (Sat May 16, 10:53 AM) - Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles, who will compete for the starting quarterback job with the Bears, is quickly getting caught up on the team's offensive system. The system isn't new to Foles, as it is the same one he learned under Bears head coach Matt Nagy when the two were with the Kansas City Chiefs. 'It's like riding a bike,' Nagy said. 'Once you present somebody like Nick the playbook and they start looking at it, all of a sudden it just clicks.'

Our View: Foles worked with Nagy before so picking up this system should be a breeze. We'll see if he can beat out 2017 first-round pick Mitchell Trubisky in training camp for the starting job.
