"I wouldn't be right here, right now, if I didn't fit," the Eagles quarterback said, according to the Inquirer. "I'd be somewhere else. I want to be here. I love this team. I love this city."
There were rumors that the Eagles would trade Foles to the Kansas City Chiefs, but Philadelphia never seemed interested in the move (the Chiefs, for what it's worth, appeared to be targeting Alex Smith all along). Foles doesn't have the same mobility as Michael Vick or previous quarterbacks who've played for Kelly, but the coach's offense is flexible. It will play to his quarterback's strengths, and Foles is a promising prospect.
We're not sure that Foles really is battling Vick for the starting quarterback job. Vick's contract indicates that he's the heavy favorite to start. Foles is the favorite to be the backup, but newly signed reserve Dennis Dixon has previous experience under Kelly from their Oregon days.
