The team that makes the most sense for Foles is the New York Jets. They’re going to start No. 2 pick Zach Wilson from Day 1 unless training camp and preseason are complete disasters for him. The only other quarterbacks on the roster are James Morgan, a fourth-round pick a year ago, and Mike White, who entered the league in 2019 as an undrafted free agent. The Jets could use a veteran with experience to show Wilson the ropes, help teach him how to study film and be a mentor of sorts. Foles seems like an ideal candidate to be that guy, and having him and Andy Dalton on the Bears roster with Justin Fields is redundant. The Bears would create a salary-cap savings if they can trade Foles after June 1. Maybe the Jets will slow-play things and see if the Bears release Foles, which seems unlikely because even after June 1, that would cost more against their cap than keeping him. The Bears wouldn’t get much for Foles. They acquired him from the Jacksonville Jaguars for a fourth-round pick, and he struggled when he played last season. But a late-round pick would really be a bonus on top of the cap savings they would create. We’ll have to see if something shakes out. I don’t think many (any?) other teams would be in the market for Foles.
