Kansas City (ESPN) – The Kansas City Chiefs and former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Nick Foles have agreed to terms on a contract, sources confirmed Wednesday night to ESPN.
The deal will be for one year with a team option for a second season, a source said.
Foles will reunite with Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who was head coach of the Eagles when Philadelphia made Foles a third-round draft pick in 2012.
The Rams granted quarterback Nick Foles’ request to be released, announcing the move Wednesday.
Foles will back up Alex Smith, who is entering his fourth season with the Chiefs. Tyler Bray and Aaron Murray are also among the Chiefs’ backup options at quarterback with training camp underway.
The NFL Network first reported the Chiefs’ pending deal with Foles.
For his career, Foles has a 19-16 record with 53 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions. The Rams released him before training camp after being unable to swing a trade.
