The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to a revised contract with quarterback Nick Foles.

Foles originally signed a two-year contract worth $11 million before last season.

The new deal includes a $2 million signing bonus. There are also a number of potential bonuses in the contract in the event he reaches specific benchmarks.

It also includes a mutual option for the 2019 season. So, instead of hitting free agency after this season, he could opt-in for the additional year.

The Eagles and QB Nick Foles reached agreement on a revised contract for the 2018 season today, sources say. The deal includes a mutual option for the 2019 season, so Foles still has the chance to hit free agency next spring. Team wanted to reward the Super Bowl MVP.

The extra year is beneficial to both Foles and the Eagles. Having the option for two seasons could incentivize a team to trade for him.

Theres also no definitive proof that Philadelphias starting quarterback Carson Wentz will be ready for week one of the NFL season. Having a legitimate backup quarterback helps solidify the uncertainty surrounding the position.

Nick Foles stepped in when Wentz tore both his ACL and LCL in week 14. He went 2-0 in regular season games and 3-0 in the playoffs.

Foles then led a juggernaut offensive all the way to Philadelphias first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. In the Super Bowl he went 28-43 for 373 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception and had a receiving touchdown. Foles became the first player in NFL history to throw a touchdown and catch a touchdown in a Super Bowl.

Earlier this week, Foles said that he wanted to be a starter again in the NFL but that isnt likely to happen in Philadelphia.
