In 2014, Foles was traded to the St. Louis Rams but was released after just one season. The next season, he served as a backup for the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 2017, he returned to the Eagles and was the backup for Carson Wentz, taking over toward the end of the season. That’s when he led the team to its first Super Bowl win and earned the MVP award.
