The Eagles will try to keep the young Nick Foles to compete with Michael Vick in Philadelphia. (Associated Press/Julio Cortez) With the recent signings of quarterbacks Michael Vick and former Steelers quarterback Dennis Dixon, it seemed to many that Nick Foles may be on the trade market. The Kansas City Chiefs and Andy Reid even reportedly expressed interest in Foles, who started seven games in place of Vick in 2012, where he threw six touchdowns and turned the ball over 10 times. However, the Chiefs won’t get a chance to trade for Foles, at least for now. According to CSNPhilly.com, the Eagles have “no plans to trade Foles” unless they are “blown away with an offer”. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly anticipates Foles and Vick competing for the starting job leading up to the 2013 season (a very good move for all involved, if you ask me). Trading a quarterback is not a rarity for the Eagles, as it is many other teams in the NFL. The Eagles have traded away AJ Feeley, Donovan McNabb and most recently Kevin Kolb — each of which fetched at least a second-round pick. For Kolb, the Eagles received a second round pick and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The Eagles currently have four quarterbacks on the roster: Foles, Vick, Dixon (signed a two-year deal on Thursday), and Trent Edwards. If reports are correct, the Eagles continue to shut the door on teams looking for a quarterback. First, by keeping Vick, and now by deciding to keep Foles. For now, Matt Cassel is safe, and Alex Smith’s future wallet just grew a little bigger. — Follow Christian Hardy on Twitter for news and notes from around the world of sports — @CHardySports The post Report: Eagles have “no plans to trade” Nick Foles appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
