How Nick Foles Can Reportedly Earn Up to $500K Per Game

We knew Nick Foles could earn a lot of money in incentives with his restructured contract. 

Now we know how. 

Foles will earn an extra $250,000 for each game this season in which he plays one-third of the Eagles' offensive snaps, according to ESPN's Field Yates. 

He can earn an extra $250,000 if he plays one-third of snaps in a game the Eagles win.

So if the Eagles go 16-0 and Foles plays the entire season - obviously highly unlikely on both fronts - Foles would walk away with an extra $8 million. 

The stakes are even high in the playoffs. According to ESPN, Foles can earn $500,000 for each game he plays one-third of snaps and $1 million for of those games he wins. That's potentially $4 million more. 

Of course, all of this possible money is dependent upon the health of Carson Wentz, who is still rehabbing from a torn ACL suffered in December. Wentz was on the practice field Tuesday at the start of OTAs but is still extremely limited. 

It was reported the Eagles turned down the No. 35 draft pick this year in favor of keeping Foles, whom they obviously still consider to be an important part of the 2018 team. 

Foles, 29, signed that restructured deal in April, not long after he became the Super Bowl MVP in Minnesota. The new deal also included a mutual option for the 2019 season.
