The Philadelphia Eagles will reportedly pick up the $20 million option to keep Nick Foles from hitting free agency, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Of course, if Foles wants to, he can pay the Eagles $2 million to buy back the option and get out of the deal and hit free agency, anyway.
However it happens, Foles appears to be as good as gone.
At this point, it really seems like the Eagles are going to try and take advantage of the poor NFL draft class at the quarterback position and work a trade to get something out of Foles before he leaves.
