Nick Foles Inks $24M Extension With St. Louis Rams
Although he's yet to play in a game for the St. Louis Rams, quarterback Nick Foles has signed a contract extension with the team.
According to ESPN.com, the deal is for two years and worth $24.5 million, giving him three years and $26 million when combined with the existing year.
"It's something the team had talked to my people about, and I want to be here," Foles said. "I want to focus on my teammates. I want to be all-in. I don't want to have to worry about contract issues or anything. To me, that can be selfish. I'm very fortunate to be here. I'm fortunate to have a contract. To me, I'm very thankful."
The Rams acquired Foles in a March trade with the Philadelphia Eagles, sending Sam Bradford to Philly for Foles and draft choices.
In three seasons with the Eagles, Foles threw for 6,753 yards with 46 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He completed 61.6 percent of his passes.
