INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA – Howey Rozman announced on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Plant that the eagles would not place a franchise marker on defender Nick Fole, allowing Foles to become a free agent March 13, when the new league year. Rosemann's announcement ended months of speculation that Eagles will be the next step with Foles, the most valuable player in Super Bowl LII.
Foles joins a long list of projected unrestricted free agents, including running back Jay Ajayi, cornerback Ronald Darby, defensive end Brandon Graham, security Corey Graham, midfielder Jordan Hicks, defender detachment Halotti Ngata, racing back Darren Sproles, wide Gold receiver Tate, and guard Chans Vormac among others.
What all this means is that the eagles give Volos the freedom to choose their next NFL team during a free agency period, rather than apply the franchise tags and develop the trade. If all this happens according to the plan, Foles will sign a contract with the new team, and the eagles will receive a compensation project in the NFL 2020 project.
