The Los Angeles Rams released quarterback Nick Foles on Wednesday, July 27. Foles agreed to drop his base salary to $1 million in exchange for his release.
Foles joined the Rams as part of a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles prior to the 2015 season. He struggled behind a young offensive line, completing only 56.4% of his passes with seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Foles compiled a rating of only 69.0 in his only season with the Rams.
L.A. attempted to trade Foles during the offseason, but there was little interest for the former Pro Bowler. He should garner some interest as a cheap backup for quite a few teams looking for an experienced quarterback.
The Rams used the second round pick they got from the Eagles to make another deal to take Foles’ successor, rookie Jared Goff.
