L.A. Rams release quarterback Nick Foles
Wednesday July 27th, 2016

After failing to find a trade partner, the Los Angeles Rams have released quarterback Nick Foles, the team announced on Wednesday.

Foles, 27, requested a release, so he will not be placed on waivers, and is now free to sign with any team.

The Rams acquired the four-year veteran prior to the 2015–16 season along with a second-round draft pick in exchange for Sam Bradford. He signed a two-year, $24.5 million extension prior to the start of the season, and went on start 11 games before being benched for Case Keenum. In those games, he completed 56.4% of his passes for 2,052 yards and seven touchdowns, with 10 interceptions.

Foles join Ryan Fitzpatrick, the other notable un-signed signalcaller, on the market.
