Somehow, Nick Foles just won the Super Bowl. I’m still not really sure how that happened. Maybe he’s actually good. Who knows. Let’s just get on to the article because I don’t want to think about the game anymore.
With Carson Wentz expected to be healthy at the start of next season, Foles’ future is fairly uncertain. No Super Bowl MVP has played for a different team the following season since Dexter Jackson left Tampa Bay in 2004, but we may see that happen this year.
Here are the odds for Nick Foles’ team at the start of 2018.
Though they’re at the top of the list, the Eagles are not expected to return their Super Bowl hero. At +135, there is a 42.6% implied chance that Foles comes back to Philly even though he’s still under contract for 2018.
Arizona is next at +400. The Cardinals have the 15th pick in the draft this year, which makes it a bit less likely that they’d draft a QB than say, the Browns, Jets, or Broncos. Though it’s somewhat of a high price, I think Arizona might be worth the +400.
We all want more Nathan Peterman in our lives so this one might be tough to swallow, but by the same draft position logic, the Bills are worth a look at +800. With the 21st pick, Buffalo likely wouldn’t be drafting a quarterback unless they were to trade up, so they might end up trying to find a new arm via a trade.
And, finally, the Vikings:
With Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, and Teddy Bridgewater all currently slated to be free agents, the Vikings can’t possibly go into 2018 with fourth-stringer Kyle Sloter as their starter.
