The NFL’s salary cap makes teams do all sorts of ridiculous stuff with players’ contracts. It’s why Tom Brady and Tony Romo rework their deals almost every year, but how many contracts are constructed like a ticking timebomb?

Nick Foles just signed back with the Eagles to ride the bench behind Carson Wentz and, according to the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin, his deal literally self-destructs after two years.

Of course, the Eagles aren’t just doing this to be evil geniuses—it works out for both sides. 

Still, it’s nice to picture Foles sitting at home in the winter of 2019 with a big red clock ticking down above his head.
