Tomorrow is the NFL trade deadline, and with Howie Roseman at the helm it is safe to assume that he will make at least one trade to help make the Eagles better for another playoff run. NFL Reporter Jason La Canfora released a list of players who could realistically be traded before the deadline, and on that list in Eagles back-up Quarterback Nick Foles.
Names I continue to hear as most realiatic to be moved by deadline –
QB – Taylor, Foles
RB – Bell
WR – Thomas/Sanders, Garcon
DB – Harris/Roby, Conley/Joseph. Jenkins, Bucannon
Pass Rush/LB – Irvin, Ray, Collins

With Carson Wentz back from his knee injury and looking like himself, this had made Foles more available. The team also believes Nate Sudfeld could be a capable back-up to Wentz, which is allowing the Eagles to at least listen to offers for Foles.
Trading Foles would open up a ton of cap space for the team. If Foles is traded, the Eagles would have plenty of room to try to add one or two playmakers with high cap hits.
