Rams sign Nick Foles to two-year extension
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/7/15) The Rams signed Nick Foles to a two-year extension, the team announced on Friday.
Foles was acquired in an offseason trade with Philadelphia. He's now under contract through the 2017 season.
Rams begin contract talks with QB Nick Foles

|(6/16/15) Jeff Fisher has revealed that the Rams have begun negotiations with new quarterback Nick Foles on a long-term contract.
"We've had some discussions," Fisher told ESPN. "I think what Nick has done early in his career, he has proven that he can get the job done on the field. He's carried things on here so we are going to continue to talk and see if we can something that's good for both sides."
Foles was acquired in a March 10 trade with Philadelphia.
New Rams QB Nick Foles has impressed his wide receivers
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/5/15) Rams quaterback Nick Foles has impressed just about everyone on his new team during organized team activities, per profootballtalk.com.
Foles, most importantly, seems to be on the same page with his receivers, who are praising his abilities so far.
“We love him,” wide receiver Kenny Britt said. “Great deep ball, he puts it on the money every time. He can throw every pass in the book.”
Foles, who was traded to the Rams by the Eagles this offseason, is also progressing well when it comes to learning the team's offense.
“He’s got his hands full because we’ve got great defensive team speed and they’re doing a lot of things over there right now,” Fisher said. “We’ve just really been pleased.”
Foles passed for 2,163 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in eight games last season.
Nick Foles' acquisition won't change Rams' plans to draft QB
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) 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
|(3/20/15) 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.
|Nick Foles was traded from the Eagles to the Rams this offseason for Sam Bradford, and we'll see if Foles can regain his 2013 form in St. Louis. Two years ago, Foles was a Fantasy sensation as the main starter for Chip Kelly. He passed for 2,891 yards, 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions and ran for 221 yards and three touchdowns in just 10 starts. But, as expected, he regressed in 2014 with 2,163 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and 68 rushing yards in eight starts, and he missed eight games with a collarbone injury. Foles loses value going from Philadelphia to St. Louis because of the system with the Rams and lack of quality receivers. Foles' top three receivers could be Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and Brian Quick, which isn't exactly inspiring, and the new system in St. Louis will likely be run heavy. We only consider Foles a No. 2 Fantasy quarterback worth drafting with a late-round pick in deeper leagues.
