The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are now in the market for a backup quarterback since Mike Glennon signed with the Chicago Bears. Apparently Tampa is not confident just having Ryan Griffin as the backup to Winston. The word on the street is that Nick Foles and the Buccaneers have mutual interest for the upcoming season. Foles last played for the Kansas Chiefs. He served as the back-up for Alex Smith.
Foles has been in the NFL since 2012 in which he was drafted in the third round by the Philadelphia Eagles. Foles played well in his three years with the Eagles. He threw for 46 touchdowns and 6,755 yards. He was traded following the 2014 season to then St.Louis Rams. He played one season in St.Louis before eventually ending up in Kansas City.
Foles would be a reliable backup for Jameis Winston. He can manage the game and occasionally air it out. Foles does, however, need a good run game, so that he doesn’t become turnover happy. The one thing with Foles is he does turn the ball over having 27 in his career. His best year was in 2013 where he threw 27 touchdowns and 2 interceptions for the Eagles.
