Nick Foles to the Vikings? Reporter says Vikes are high on the list

Publish date:

Nick Foles was granted his release from the Los Angeles Rams on Wednesday, meaning he's looking for a new team as training camps are getting underway.

A source told Bleacher Report's Jason Cole that the Vikings, Bills and Cowboys are the most likely landing spots for Foles.

Foles is out of L.A. after skipping all of the team's offseason workouts because he wasn't happy that the Rams drafted a quarterback, Jared Goff, No. 1 overall, ESPN reports.

Teddy Bridgewater is clearly Minnesota's starting quarterback, so Foles in Minnesota would likely be as a backup. Shaun Hill is the current backup to Bridgewater.

In 2013 Foles started 10 games for the Eagles and finished with a remarkable 27 touchdown passes and only 2 interceptions, so he has shown the ability to be a very good player. The question is whether he was a one-hit-wonder because he was average to below average in 2014 and 2015 with the Eagles and Rams.

CBS Sports ranked all 32 teams as potential landing spots for Foles and the Vikings were 18th.
