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 | Chicago uncertain about starting QB (Mon Nov 23, 10:31 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) and QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) are both working their way back from injury, and head coach Matt Nagy said it is too early to name a starting quarterback for Week 12.

Bears | Nick Foles day to day (Tue Nov 17, 12:04 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Nick Foles' (hip) hip and gluteus injury isn't as bad as expected, and he could return after the bye week.

Our View: That's good news for Foles here. The Bears have a Week 11 bye which gives Foles more time to get right. We'll see what his status is next week in practice. Tyler Bray took over at the quarterback position late in the game for the Bears on Monday, but he's not an exciting starting option.

'It's been frustrating, it's been hard and that's the part that's difficult through all of this because no one wants it more than him to be out there to fight his teammates.'
