Foles Gets Raise In Restructured Deal – The Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback Nick Foles agreed to a reworked contract Friday, a source confirmed to ESPN. The restructured deal includes a $2 million signing bonus, incentives if he starts and hits certain benchmarks, and a mutual option for 2019. Foles was in the final year of his contract and was scheduled to make a base salary of $4 million this season. NFL Network first reported the contract restructuring.
Both parties would have to be on board to exercise the 2019 option. The move gives the Super Bowl MVP a pay bump and provides an avenue for Foles to remain in Philadelphia beyond this season, depending on circumstances.
Broncos To Deal Punter Dixon To Giants – The New York Giants are set to acquire punter Riley Dixon from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a future conditional pick, a source told ESPN on Friday. Dixon became expendable after the Broncos signed Marquette King as a free agent earlier this month. The Giants had an opening after cutting Brad Wing in March following a poor season. Dixon, 24, had been on the trade block and was looking for a landing spot. He did not report to the start of Denver’s offseason workout program earlier this week. There were other teams interested in his services.
