Foles’ special day with revised contract includes family visiting Eagles’ facility

The fun times for Nick Foles continue.

On a day when he toured his wife Tori — a former Arizona volleyball standout — and daughter Lily James — around the Philadelphia Eagles’ facility, he signed a revised contract with a reported $2 million signing bonus.

Foles in a tweet proclaimed it, “Bring your family to work day!”

Foles, the most prolific passer in Wildcat history who earned the Super Bowl MVP in the Eagles’ victory over New England, has received an upgraded deal for the 2018 season and a mutual option for 2019, according to the NFL Network.

Terms were not released, but reportedly Foles will receive a $2 million signing bonus.

Foles was due to become a restricted free agent after this season. It was speculated that Foles would be part of a trade on draft day, with the Eagles asking for at least a No. 1 pick.

“I know there was some stuff going around, a possible trade, and I would love the opportunity to be a starter again,” Foles, who replaced injured starter Carson Wentz late last season, said on a Philadelphia sports radio show earlier this week. “I know my spot in Philly.

“I think I’ve shown what I can do. I’m signed for one more year and I love the team, I love the city. I’m excited for Carson to get back on his feet. I’ll be ready to go whenever they need me. But we’ll see.”

Foles was due to make $7 million in the final season of a two-year contract. He will also make several millions more in incentives if he becomes the starter and achieves various statistical benchmarks.
