Colts add QB Nick Foles on 2-year deal

The Indianapolis Colts are adding quarterback Nick Foles with a two-year contract, NFL Network reported Monday.

The move reunites Foles with Colts head coach Frank Reich, Foles’ offensive coordinator while both were in Philadelphia.

Foles will back up new Colts starter Matt Ryan.

The Bears released Foles earlier this month after failing to find a trade partner.

Foles, 33, appeared in 10 games (eight starts) in two seasons in Chicago, completing 65.1 percent of his passes for 2,102 yards with 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions and a 3-5 record. Last season, he was the third-string quarterback behind veteran Andy Dalton and rookie Justin Fields.

The Bears acquired Foles in a trade with Jacksonville two seasons ago.

Foles has thrown for 14,003 yards and 82 touchdowns in 68 games (56 starts) with five teams, most notably the Philadelphia Eagles (2012-14, 2017-18). Foles led the Eagles to a victory in Super Bowl LII.
