After Nick Foles helped the Philadelphia Eagles to a stunning Super Bowl triumph, the quarterback is getting a pay raise for his efforts.

Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport from NFL Network first reported the revised contract, which includes a $2 million signing bonus and "several millions in incentives if he's the starter and hits various benchmarks", according to Rapoport. Foles and the Eagles will also have a mutual option for 2019, allowing him to possibly become a free agent after this season. Foles became the first player in National Football League history to throw a touchdown and catch a touchdown in a Super Bowl.

There had been speculation after the Eagles won the Super Bowl the team would listen to offers for Foles, trying to maximize on his trade potential. In the Super Bowl he went 28-43 for 373 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception and had a receiving touchdown. The issue for the Eagles was the status of starting quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered torn knee ligaments in Week 14 last season, an injury which opened the door for Foles' heroics.

"We love Philly, Foles told an abc station in Texas earlier this week".

The Philadelphia Eagles reconstructed Foles' contract. "I know there was some stuff going around [about] a possible trade, and I would love the opportunity to be a starter again", Foles said.
