Nick Foles will return to the state of Missouri in 2016 to play for the Kansas City Chiefs

Nick Foles is heading to Kansas City for a reunion with Andy Reid, the former Philadelphia Eagles coach who drafted the Arizona Wildcats quarterback standout in 2012.

NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo first reported that Foles will sign with the Chiefs for a one-year deal for an undisclosed amount. In addition to the Chiefs, Foles had offers from the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings.

Foles requested his release from the Los Angeles Rams last week. He spent 2015 with the Rams, throwing for just 7 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Prior to that, Foles was with the Eagles for three seasons after being drafted in 2012. Reid was the team’s head coach in Foles’ rookie season when he started six games for the Eagles.

Foles’ best season came in 2013 when he passed for 27 touchdowns and 2 interceptions with Chip Kelly as the Eagles’ coach.
