The Eagles brass is putting the finishing touches of scouting potential draft picks at the annual NFL scouting combine, but there are other pressing questions that need answers this offseason.
Quarterback Nick Foles is a hot topic of conversation, should the Eagles keep him or trade him? According to Geoff Mosher of FanRag Sports, the Eagles received an offer of a second-round pick, in exchange for the Super Bowl MVP.
An AFC team has already offered a second-round pick for Foles, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. The offer was proposed earlier this offseason, per the source.
