The St. Louis Rams have seemingly flown under the radar ahead of the 2015 NFL season.
The Rams biggest signing was bringing in defensive lineman Nick Fairley, formerly of the Detroit Lions, while they also pulled off a bizarre trade with the Philadelphia Eagles that saw Sam Bradford leave and Nick Foles come in.
And it seems that the Rams really like what they have seen from Foles so far in the pre-season.
Long Term Deal
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, St. Louis and Foles have confirmed that they are negotiating a long-term contract with the quarterback who has only been on the team for a matter of months.
Fisher said that Foles proved “he can get the job done on the field” while with the Eagles and Foles said he wants to spend the rest of his career with the team.
“This is where I want to play,” Foles said. “As a player, you want to be somewhere and you want to play there the rest of your career. So this is where I want to be, but that’s why we have agents."
"My most important thing right now is just to continue to work with my teammates and continue to be the best player and person I can be. We’ll see what happens. I love Coach Fisher and the staff and everybody in this building. I’m very fortunate to be here.”
Foles is slated to make $1.5 million this year on his current contract, which is a bargain for a starting quarterback in today’s NFL. Obviously, with Foles being the Rams' starter, he will want to be paid like it.
It will be interesting to see what kind of deal Foles will get and whether or not the Rams will actually wait out this season and potentially put the franchise tag on their starting man, if he performs very well.
