Even though Nick Foles could be on his way out of Philadelphia, the veteran quarterback will always be remembered for his playoff performances over the last two seasons.
The Eagles have won four postseason games since the 2017 season, which included the franchise’s first Super Bowl. Philadelphia was one interception away from possibly playing in this year’s NFC Championship.
Despite losing Carson Wentz during the regular season again, the Eagles rallied around Foles and his ability to play well under pressure.
Unfortunately Foles missed an incentive this season that would have resulted in a lucrative bonus for playing 33 percent of the team’s snaps. However, the Eagles are making a classy gesture and will reward their Super Bowl winning quarterback.
According to ESPN insider Field Yates, the Eagles have paid Foles the extra $1 million in the form of a signing bonus.
Source: the Eagles have paid QB Nick Foles a $1M signing bonus to account for the incentive he missed out on by just four snaps earned by Philly making the playoffs and Foles playing 33% of the snaps. Philly does right by the clutch QB.

The 30-year-old quarterback finished this season with 1,413 passing yards, seven touchdowns and completed 72.3 percent of his pass attempts in limited action.
With the Eagles building their team around Wentz for the future, the expectation is that multiple teams will have interest in adding Foles this offseason.
Regardless of where he plays next season, it’s clear that Philadelphia is very appreciative of Foles and his contributions.
