Sonoran Hot Reads: Nick Foles on the trading block

New, 1 comment

The Rams seem to be moving on

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Since the Los Angeles Rams took former Cal quarterback Jared Goff with the first pick in this year's NFL Draft, that means former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles is now expendable. It seems the team is looking for picks in this year's draft as compensation, and "at least five" teams have expressed interest in acquiring Foles. It's probably better for Foles to go elsewhere since the Rams will be focused on Goff and Case Keenum, but it would have been nice to have him play closer to Tucson. Either way, let's hope he goes somewhere where he'll get an opportunity to succeed
