04:50 PM ET 05.02 | Many fans have expected that the Philadelphia Eagles would be looking to move on from Nick Foles following the hiring of Chip Kelly as head coach. That seemed even more likely after the Eagles retained Michael Vick as the starter and then selected Matt Barkley in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. Despite those moves, however, Philadelphia and Kelly also apparently solidified Foles' status on the roster after turning down trade talks for the second-year QB during the draft, according to Philly Mag's Tim McManus.

Wiser to let the QBs compete, makes the harder workers better, learning to read the play after the snap is more difficult as mental capacity has a ceiling. A trade near mid season will bring more in return.

Might have been the best pass they didn't throw!

They'd better figure the QB situation out because dollars to donuts says Vick doesn't last half the season before he starts endorsing hospital guerneys.

It will take the NFL D-Coordinators about three games to figure out Kelly's offense. At that point he's going to need every capable QB he's got because the defense is going to pop 'em. Hard and often.

You'd think they would want to pick up Tebow. At least with another inaccurate running QB on the roster they won't need to adjust the playbook much when Vick misses his 4-5 usual games next season.
