Former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles has had a career that many would dream about, but he may finally be facing the end of the line after 11 years in the league.
Foles was recently released by the Indianapolis Colts after only one year with the organization. At 34 years of age, he revealed on Saturday that he is contemplating his future in the NFL.
He discussed getting released by Indianapolis with The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he stated that he actually wasn’t all that upset about being cut.
“I was just released yesterday by the Colts, which is actually a good thing, so don’t cry for me. It’s OK,” said Foles. “The coach that I was there for, Frank Reich, was fired. Their GM and I had a good relationship. It’s all good. Everything’s fine.”
He then revealed that he has considered retirement before, and is now contemplating the move again with no clear landing spot in free agency.
“Shoot, almost every year of my career I’ve almost retired,” Foles added. “Every offseason, I think, ‘Do I still want to play? Do I still want to keep going?’”
Given his vast experience in the NFL, he could still likely sign on to a team and provide a veteran presence as a backup for a young quarterback. However, his days of starting at quarterback in the NFL are likely finished, especially after his struggles last season for the Colts.
In two starts for Indianapolis Foles finished with just 224 passing yards to go along with zero touchdowns and four interceptions.
