Will Andy Reid Trade For Nick Foles?

In scouting for possible locations that Nick Foles might end up, if the Eagles were to trade him, it's impossible to overlook the Kansas City Chiefs. Andy Reid knows Foles well, and presumably likes him. Moreover, he has stepped into a situation with a hole at franchise quarterback and few good draft prospects to fill it. Mike Garafolo of the USA Today reported Thursday night that a source told him Reid is considering a trade:

The Chiefs and new coach Andy Reid are interested in acquiring Foles if he becomes available, according to a person informed of the team's thinking. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs haven't discussed their thoughts publicly, said the team is working on plans to add a quarterback and considers Foles a possibility.

Kelly has said Foles and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job despite their differences in style. The person informed of the Chiefs' plans said the Eagles have not told Kansas City that Foles is available.

These kind of anonymous reports are often hard to trace. It seems to come from someone hooked in to the Chiefs, but why would they leak information like that? The Eagles benefit much more.
