Nick Foles' acquisition won't change Rams' plans to draft QB
by Michael Hurcomb |

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team is still looking to draft a quarterback this year, despite the acquisition of quarterback Nick Foles, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“It’s our intention to draft one,” Fisher said. “The Nick (Foles) trade has no bearing over what we do in the draft.”

The Rams have the 10th pick in the first round. It's unlikely Jamies Winston or Marcus Mariota fall that far, so unless St. Louis trades up, then they are likely looking to draft from the second-tier of quarterbacks, which includes Bryce Petty, Brett Hundley, Sean Mannion and Garrett Grayson.

“There’s some outstanding players once you get beyond (Winston and Mariota),” Fisher said. “We’re just starting the process. My understanding based on our first-wave draft meetings is that there’s some young quarterbacks that can play.”

Petty, who played at Baylor, said in a radio interview earlier in March he intends to visit with the Rams before the draft.

“Good combine,” Fisher said. “Got a very strong arm. Good athlete. You don’t see him do things that we’re gonna ask him to do, so I think you have to see him actually work out, private workout, things like that.”

Rams QB Nick Foles had no hint of trade, not 'overjoyed' to leave Philly
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Quarterback Nick Foles said he had no notice of his impending trade to the Rams and was not “overjoyed” to leave the Eagles as previously reported, according to Pro Football Talk.

“The second I got a phone call, and Chip Kelly told me I was traded. That was the first time,” Foles told Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated.

Foles also disputes the claim that he was "overjoyed" to leave Philadelphia.

“To clear that up, a reporter had texted my uncle, and what my uncle had said was, 'Nick is really going to miss Philadelphia. He’s really going to miss his friends and family and the fan base, but he is really excited about the opportunity he has in St. Louis,'" Foles said.

“That’s exactly what the text message says. Do you see anything in that text message that says I’m overjoyed? That’s not even a part of it. It got misconstrued. I never said that.

QB Nick Foles excited about fresh start in St. Louis
by Larry Hartstein |

New Rams quarterback Nick Foles said he's looking forward to proving himself "outside the realm of Chip Kelly's offense," reports

"It’s definitely a new start but I’m going to continue to be me," Foles told the website. "I think being the best quarterback you can be is just being who you are, so I’m excited to just get to know my teammates and get to know the locker room because that’s what it’s about. ... But sticking together like I said, which I admired of the Rams last season, that’s what I love about it and I just want to help add to it."

Foles played in 28 games over three seasons in Philly, throwing 46 touchdowns against 17 interceptions.

Fisher: Rams chose Nick Foles over first round pick
by Shawn Krest |

Jeff Fisher said that the Rams wanted quarterback Nick Foles so badly, they turned down a first-round pick. 

Appearing on PFT Live, the Rams coach said that the team was offered a low first-round draft pick for quarterback Sam Bradford but turned it down, because the team wanted Foles. 

“There were some discussions, yes," Fisher said, "but from our standpoint, the first-round pick — obviously it’s attractive, but you still don’t have a quarterback. It’s a late pick and then would we move up and get into position to draft one? It didn’t make sense to us,”

Fisher said that, even if Bradford agreed to a pay cut, he likely wouldn't have returned to the Rams. 

The Rams traded Bradford to the Eagles for Foles on Tuesday afternoon. Chip Kelly, Bradford's new coach, said the Eagles were also offered a first-rounder for the quarterback.

Eagles acquire Sam Bradford from Rams for Nick Foles
by R.J. White |

The Eagles announced Tuesday that the team has acquired quarterback Sam Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round pick from the Rams in exchange for quarterback Nick Foles, a 2015 fourth-round pick and a 2016 second-round pick.

Bradford has dealt with major knee injuries in back-to-back seasons, missing all of 2014 and playing just seven games in 2013. He has completed 58.6 percent of his career passes while racking up 59 touchdowns and 38 interceptions. The Eagles have not approached the quarterback about a new contract, NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports, leaving Bradford on track to reach free agency in 2016.

Foles shined in his first season in Chip Kelly's offense in 2013, recording a 27:2 TD:INT ratio and completing 64 percent of his passes. He regressed last season, completing 59.8 percent of his passes while throwing for 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in eight games.
