We begin in the NFL, and St. Louis Rams are reportedly interested in signing new quarterback Nick Foles to a long-term contract.

The Rams traded away Sam Bradford to acquire Foles in March, and he only has one year remaining on his rookie deal.

But head coach Jeff Fisher is hell bent on getting Foles to stay in St. Louis for the long-term.

Foles to get new deal?

"The Rams and Foles have had initial talks on a long-term contract and plan to continue discussions this summer, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports," ProFootballTalk reported

It would be interesting to see what the Rams offer him in terms of money, with Foles currently set to earn $1.5 million in the final year of his rookie deal, which is certainly a steal compared to the figures they were paying Sam Bradford.

When it comes to Foles' next deal, no doubt he will want to be paid like a starting quarterback gets paid, which is much more money than $1.5 million a year that's for sure.

Why was Vernon Davis so bad in 2014?

Sticking with the NFL, and San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has revealed why he had such a poor campaign in 2014.

Davis was well below his Pro Bowl best last season, but the tight end simply puts that down to game planning by the 49ers and not his own poor play.

“Whenever I’d run, like, my deep over routes there was a safety sitting over there already,” Davis said, according to ProFootballTalk.

"It was just game planning. And nothing really ever opened up. But I wasn’t really ever a factor in the offense last year. The first game, yeah. But the second game, the tight ends [weren’t] really involved as a whole.”
