Chiefs sign Nick Foles

ESPN - [Full Article]

Nick Foles was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012, when they were coached by current Chiefs coach Andy Reid. He has had a big NFL season -- just one, but it was impressive -- that was statistically better than any ever produced by Chiefs starter Alex Smith. Foles is only 27, or five years younger than Smith, leaving him plenty of time to resurrect his career.

Add it all up and it’s easy to come to the conclusion the Chiefs are looking at this as more than a nothing-to-lose gamble that Foles can become the player he was for the Eagles in 2013, when he threw 27 touchdown passes in 10 starts and led the NFL with a passer rating of 119.2, which is a better number than Tom Brady has ever put up.

Fantasy Impact: 

This seems like a perfect fit for Foles who is reunited with Reid. Reid has always had a knack for making QBs look good and Foles should be familiar with the system to step right in if something were to happen to Smith. Foles has also worked with Jeremy Maclin while with the Eagles.
