The Kansas City Chiefs head coach, Andy Reid, stood at a podium during a press conference at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis two days ago and when asked about the availability of second-year Eagles QB, Nick Foles, said, “He’s not available.” Reports out of Indy say that might not be true.
Mike Garafolo of USA Today reported that the Chiefs and Eagles at least discussed the possibility of Philly trading Foles to the Chiefs, but that it was made clear to the Chiefs that the Eagles want to take a longer look at Foles to make sure he fits into new head coach Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense.
The Eagles restructured Michael Vick’s contract to a one-year deal two weeks ago and signed one of Kelly’s former collegiate QBs, Dennis Dixon, one week ago. Foles ended the season as Philadelphia’s starting quarterback under Reid. Since Reid drafted Foles last year and gave the rookie control of the football team after Vick imploded, it makes sense that the Chiefs would be interested.
The Chiefs currently have Matt Cassel and Ricky Stanzi on the roster and are desperate to upgrade that position during the off-season.

Despite the fact that I’m 50 years old, I’m getting my arm loosened up for a tryout with the Chiefs this off-season. I’m pretty sure I won’t be as good as Cassel, but I could probably punk Stanzi. Mostly because I would actually throw the ball to players on my team. Hey … that give me a leg up on Cassel too!!
