Twitter reacts to Colts signing former Bears QB Nick Foles - Chicago Bears Wire

1 month ago 24

Former Chicago Bears quarterback Nick Foles is signing a two-year deal with the Indianapolis Colts, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

Earlier this offseason, the Bears signed Trevor Siemian to serve as Fields’ backup, which all but assured Foles was on his way out of Chicago. Unfortunately, Poles couldn’t find a trade partner and the Bears had to release him and deal with his $7.67 million dead cap hit.

Now, Foles reunites with Colts head coach Frank Reich, who served as the offensive coordinator for the Eagles when Foles led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl.

Nick Foles and the #Colts have now agreed to terms on a two-year deal, source says. Foles and Frank Reich officially reunited, this time with Foles as Matt Ryan’s backup.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Philadelphia Eagles were also interested in Foles following his release from Chicago.

Foles, who will serve as Matt Ryan’s backup, is the second former Eagles quarterback to join Reich over the last couple of years. As you imagine, there was plenty of reaction from Twitter about Foles joining the Colts.

Curious to see if there was any offset language in the #Bears original deal with Foles. If so, this deal with the Colts could save them a bit of cap space for next year.

We have come full circle. Five years ago these guys battled it out in the 2017 NFC divisional round. Now the guy that won that game will be backing up the one that lost.

It’s a real shame the Bears couldn’t get anything for Foles. But I can’t blame Ryan Poles for being unable to unload a contract that his predecessor brought in.

Nick Foles is having an amazing career as a backup

I’m happy with the Colts signing Nick Foles to a two year contract. This gives the Colts two years to have Nick Foles backup Matt Ryan, allowing the Colts to draft their guy in next years NFL Draft and allow him to sit behind Ryan and Foles for at least one year. #ColtsNation

I was about to make fun of how old the Colts’ QB room is until I realized that Nick Foles and I are only three years apart.
