Foles rumoured to be set for split with Eagles ahead of the new season.
The New York Jets are not interested in trading for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles “at this point”, according to the New York Daily News.
The Jets have been proactive in their search to provide Mark Sanchez with a battle to claim the role of starter, but it appears as though the Eagles QB isn’t at the top of their list despite the possibility of a reunion with former offensive co-ordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
Foles had been expected to split with Philadelphia ahead of the new season, with new coach Chip Kelly preferring to field Michael Vick as his starter.
Vick recently restructured his contract in order to extend his stay at the franchise, thus leaving Foles with a difficult situation and a tough task of working his way into starting contention.
The 24-year-old had also been linked with a move to Kansas, but the Chiefs have since moved for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith.
Last month, CSNPhilly.com reported that the Eagles would only be interested in a trade for Foles if they were “blown away” by the offer.
There is still time for the Jets to change their stance, as they also have a decision to make over the future of cornerback Darrelle Revis which could open up some draft avenues for the franchise.
