Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed upon an improved contract for 2018, which includes a mutual option for 2019.
Foles originally signed a two-year contract worth $11 million before last season. That gives Foles the chance to become a free agent, but if both parties agree to it, the new deal also would potentially let him come back to Philly if he didn't find a new home elsewhere. Foles will get a 2 million dollar signing bonus.
The backup quarterback was set to test free agency after the 2018 season. And despite Foles indicating he'd like to start somewhere moving forward, the trade market simply hasn't been active for his services. The veteran quarterback went 2-1 as a starter in the regular season, but then a flawless 3-0 during Philadelphia's run to a championship. Remember, Foles replaced his younger counterpart under center when Wentz suffered a torn ACL in December.

The Philadelphia Eagles are giving Nick Foles a well-deserved raise.
