Nick Foles: I’m excited to wear that Eagles jersey for “at least one more year”

“I would love the opportunity to lead a team,” Foles told Fox Sport’s First Things First morning show.
So if that does come to be, I want to find the right [place], be with the right team, a team like the Philadelphia Eagles organization.
We’ll see what happens after the season, but I’m excited about this 2018 Eagles season.
I get to wear that jersey at least one more year, and I’m super excited about wearing it one more year.” Foles, who has started only seven games over the past two seasons, including three in the 2017 postseason, has developed a friendship with Wentz.
He calls it a “great dynamic.” Thus, Foles is rooting for Wentz to stay healthy — and in the starting lineup — all season.
But that’s where I’ve got to put my ego aside and say, ‘Hey, this is what’s best for the team.’ I can still be a leader in the locker room but just in my lane.
“Now we’re going into this season, and everyone’s wanting to know are you going to start the season.
I would love to play in Philly the rest of my career.
I want Carson to have an amazing career there, be a legend there.
I’m just excited about this season and then we’ll see what happens after that.” Wentz has targeted the season opener for his return, but Foles gives them a Plan B if Wentz isn’t.

Nick Foles remains in Philadelphia with a restructured deal. But with Carson Wentz returning, it begs the question of how long the Super Bowl MVP will stay around as a backup?

While promoting his new book, “Believe It: My Journey of Success, Failure, and Overcoming the Odds,” Foles appeared on FS1 sounding as if he expects to play elsewhere by next season.

Many, in fact, are surprised Foles isn’t already a starter somewhere else.

“I would love the opportunity to lead a team,” Foles told Fox Sport’s First Things First morning show. “Now, let me also say this, I’m not just going to go to a team and say, ‘Hey, I want to lead this team,’ and not see where they are. It’s about an environment. . . . So if that does come to be, I want to find the right [place], be with the right team, a team like the Philadelphia Eagles organization. They do it the right way. It’s an amazing locker room with amazing leaders and coaches. I’ve been blessed to be a part of it. That’s why I’m not running away.

“They had me under contract this year. Everyone wanted to know where I was going to be. I’m grateful to be a part of it. They restructured my deal. They wanted me there. I wanted to be there this year. We’ll see what happens after the season, but I’m excited about this 2018 Eagles season. I get to wear that jersey at least one more year, and I’m super excited about wearing it one more year.”
