According the ESPN NFL Insider Jeremy Fowler, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have their eye on a new backup quarterback for Jameis Winston.
Mutual interest between QB Nick Foles and the #Bucs, I'm told. Jameis could have his new backup soon.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) March 10, 2017
Foles' team option was not picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs earlier this week. The 28 year-old journeyman joined Kansas City last year as a free agent after being released by the Los Angeles Rams. He played in three games for Kansas City, starting one. He threw for 410 yards and three touchdowns.
He played three seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles and one for the Rams before joining the Chiefs.
The Eagles' third-round pick in 2012, Foles started five games that season and in 2013 had one of the more remarkable quarterback seasons in NFL history. Foles threw 27 touchdown passes with just two interceptions in leading the Eagles to the playoffs.
