The Philadelphia Eagles have paid a $ 1 million bonus to Nick Foles even though the quarterback had fallen short of an incentive on his contract, a league source told Field Yates. ESPN.
Adam Schefter had reported the intention of the Pennsylvania franchise earlier this month as they felt he deserved it.
Foles was on his way to earning the incentive, which was activated if they qualified for the playoffs and he appeared in 33 percent of the team's plays, but injured his ribs in the last quarter of the game against the Washington Redskins that served them ensure his presence in the postseason. He had to leave the duel and was in 357 of the 1,092 plays they had in the year, staying four of the required mark.
Already in the Wild Card Round he led the victory of Philadelphia at Soldier Field against the Chicago Bears and later fell in the Divisional Round against the New Orleans Saints, who qualified as the No. 1 of the National Conference. Foles also gave them the first Super Bowl ring in their history after beating the New England Patriots in the LII edition.
