Default Fortunately, the Eagles have proven they are not adverse to risk.

Denver just gave up a 4th for Joe Flacco. Wouldn't the Ravens have cut him if they hadn't found a suitor?
...and whatís the risk here: having to franchise Foles and keep him on the roster the entire year because you canít find a trade partner? Ok.

Baltimore found a trade partner willing to take Flacco, who is a 34 year old QB and making $23m a year, for a mid 4th round pick. Denver certainly didnít wait for Flacco to be cut because Washington was sniffing around.

Foles is 30 with a much better resume over the past 3 years. He is the consensus best available QB even when Flacco was on the market. Are teams going to wait for him to be cut because they donít want to pay north of a 4th round pick?

I donít think so.
