On Wednesday afternoon, Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman revealed the team has no plans to tag quarterback Nick Foles. As a result, Foles will be a free agent headed into the 2019 season.

After leading the team to a Super Bowl win in 2017 and another playoff appearance in 2018, Foles showed he's ready to hold down a starting role. Now that he's a free agent, Foles will get that opportunity.

According to a report from Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com, one team is "very interested" in Nick Foles. The New York Giants are reportedly interested in signing the new free agent.

Here's more from Pauline.

It would be an interesting move for the Giants, especially considering head coach Pat Shurmur said he expects Eli Manning to be back for another year.

If the Giants bring Manning back, Foles would have to do exactly what he was doing in Philadelphia - sit.

This report suggests the Giants might not be in love with any of the quarterbacks in the 2019 draft. If that is the case, New York would spend significant money on both Foles and Manning.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars are the other popular landing spot for Foles. His former quarterbacks coach in Philadelphia, John DeFilippo, is the offensive coordinator in Jacksonville.
