Eagles reportedly declined Browns’ trade offer for Nick Foles

The Browns traded for Tyrod Taylor in mid-March. But, before they dealt for the Bills quarterback, Cleveland attempted to acquire Nick Foles.

The Browns offered Philadelphia the 2018 NFL Draft’s 35th overall pick in exchange for Foles, according to a report from NFL.com. The Eagles reportedly declined the trade after Foles told the team he’d rather stay in Philadelphia.

Foles stepped in as the Eagles’ starter last season after Carson Wentz tore his ACL in mid-December. He threw for 971 yards and six touchdowns in the playoffs.

“I think it’s a unique way to show togetherness, not only for our team but in society today,” Cavs forward Jeff Green said. “For me, I take it as more than us … especially when you’re dealing with a lot of different backgrounds like we have.”

To Green’s point, the Cavs’ melting pot consists of mostly black players, but there are also white players in Kevin Love and Kyle Korver, the aforementioned Calderon, who is Spanish, Clarkson, who is half-Filipino, Cedi Osman, who is Turkish, and Ante Zizic, who is Croatian.

Boston registered 79 total tackles and five interceptions for the Chargers last season. He was originally picked in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Panthers and spent three seasons in Carolina.

The Colts finished 2017 with a 4-12 record and missed the playoffs for the third straight year in part to a dismal secondary. They fired coach Chuck Pagano and replaced him with former Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich in the offseason.

Indianapolis is expecting quarterback Andrew Luck, who missed all of last season with a shoulder injury, to be ready to the start season.
