The team announced Friday that Foles has signed a two-year extension through the 2017 season.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the deal is worth just over $24.5 million. Rapoport reports that Foles will receive just under $14 million in guaranteed money. Foles can void the final year of the deal based on Pro Bowl or team performance.
"(Foles') body of work is pretty impressive," Fisher said. "... He can make every throw. ... Talking to his teammates, they really like the way he runs the huddle and manages the offense. So I'm very pleased with where he's going right now."
"He's everything that you want in a quarterback -- everything that you've always wanted," Cook said. "It just feels like he belongs here, and it feels like he's been here for a while, which is a good piece. It's what we need."
Despite that effusive praise, Foles has a lot to prove this season.
Even if his 2014 woes can be partially attributed to injuries on the offensive line, that will likely remain an issue in St. Louis with first-time starters at three different positions up front.
