The Philadelphia Eagles will stick with Carson Wentz as their starting quarterback despite the success of Nick Foles.
"Yes, Carson Wentz is the quarterback going forward," coach Doug Pederson said at a joint news conference with executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman on Tuesday. "And in Nick's case, listen, we'd love to have everybody back throughout the roster, but as I've said many, many times, it's not about one guy, it's about the team, and we're going to do what's best for the team."
Foles can become a free agent this offseason unless the Eagles use the franchise tag on him.
"We would love to keep Nick Foles," Roseman said. "You talk about a guy we drafted here and we've grown incredibly close with. I don't know a team that wouldn't want to have Nick Foles on their roster. Certainly as we go into the substance of those discussions, we haven't had them yet, but there's no question we love having Nick Foles as an Eagle in Philadelphia and we'd love to keep him."
Foles wants to be a starter and figures to receive a significant contract as a free agent.
