Nick Foles reportedly receives $1M bonus from Eagles

NFL NFC Divisional Playoff Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints

The incentive would have been triggered if the Eagles made the playoffs and if Foles played 33 percent of the team's offensive plays this season, ESPN notes.

Well, if you're a Philadelphia Eagles fan, this is probably not what you want to read on a Monday morning.

"He needs to realize it's the Philadelphia Eagles not the Philadelphia Carsons", a source told PhillyVoice. "Carson has been nothing but a GREAT person, GREAT teammate and GREAT leader since Day 1", wrote Ertz, who set an National Football League single-season record for tight ends with 116 catches, at least 51 more than any teammate. Calling Wentz "one of the best leaders and teammates I've been around", Sudfeld asserted, "He's handled the last two years with such grace and poise and has NEVER put anything above the Philadelphia Eagles".

Ertz, who was mentioned in the story as Wentz's favorite target to a fault, also backed his QB.


Even this season when all hope seemed lost at one point in December following a key loss to the Dallas Cowboys, it was Foles who stepped up in a big way by helping Philadelphia win their final three games to earn a trip to the playoffs before falling in the Divisional Round. Sources tell Santoloquito that Wentz "bullied" Groh and any issues with the offence should "lie with Wentz". He has to learn that it's not always about him and that's partly what hurt this team this year.

The second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of North Dakota State, Wentz experienced a significant injury for a second consecutive season that forced the Eagles to turn to backup Nick Foles. "And when the dust has settled, his legacy will be one of an incredible competitor and teammate who laid it on the line each and every day for the guy next to him, and a man who did everything he could to help this team succeed".

The Carson Wentz season ending injury opened the door for Nick Foles to make yet another historic run for the City of Brotherly Love. "The starter thing - leading a team, impacting the locker room. We can't wait to get to work and be the best team we can be in 2019!"

"A little humility goes a long way".
