New Chiefs coach Andy Reid was the coach in Philadelphia last April when the Eagles took Foles 88th overall in the third round of the NFL Draft. Foles started six games under Reid in 2012 and went 1-5 in those starts.
For the Chiefs to get Foles, the Eagles would have to be willing to deal him and there's no guarantee that will be the case any time in the near future.
New Eagles coach Chip Kelly has given no hints about who his starting quarterback will be in Philadelphia next season, other than to say it's going to be an open competition between Michael Vick -- who signed a restructured one-year deal on Monday -- and Foles.
The Eagles' quarterback competition had another wrench thrown into it on Thursday when the team announced the signing of Dennis Dixon. Dixon could be the wild card in the Eagles' quarterback competition because he understands what Kelly wants out of an offense. Dixon was Kelly's quarterback in 2007 during Kelly's first season as an offensive coordinator at Oregon.
If the Chiefs can't land Foles, they do have other options at quarterback. Kansas City has been mentioned as a possible landing spot for 49ers quarterback Alex Smith and the Chiefs also have the first overall pick in April's NFL Draft. However, it looks like, if given a choice, Reid and new Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson would prefer Foles.
