The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have agreed to terms with quarterback Nick Foles, a third-round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, on a four-year deal. With Foles in the fold, the Eagles' lone remaining unsigned draft pick is first-round pick defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. Cox, however, can still participate in the upcoming Organized Team Activities alongside the rookies under contract and the rest of the veteran Eagles.
Foles, the highest drafted Arizona quarterback since 1962 (Eddie Wilson), finished his collegiate career as the Wildcats' all-time leading passer in terms of yards (10,011), touchdowns (67), attempts (1,369) and completions (933) en route to earning three consecutive All-Pac 10 honorable mentions from 2009-11. A native of Austin, TX, Foles also shattered Wildcat single-season records in attempts (560), completions (387) and yards (4,334) while adding 28 touchdowns as a senior in 2011. He was named the team's Offensive co-MVP as a junior in 2010, throwing for 3,191 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Foles starred at Westlake High School, where he broke school career records previously held by Saints quarterback Drew Brees for passing yards (5,658) and passing TDs (56). He was a three-year starter and two-time team MVP for Westlake's basketball team, averaging 15 points and 11 rebounds in 2005-06 while earning all-district honors, and leading the district in rebounding as a sophomore.
Foles joins Mike Kafka and Trent Edwards as the quarterbacks on the Eagles roster behind Michael Vick.
