More than four years after the Philadelphia Eagles put the bow on the best gift they’ve ever given their fans, a Super Bowl win, every conversation about the heroes from a fantastic night of NFL action still brings a smile to the faces of Birds fans. If you’re like most, you still pay attention to what the gang is doing, even if guys are playing or coaching somewhere else.

These days, the Indianapolis Colts can make one feel like they’re a midwestern version of the guys in green. Frank Reich has led the team as its head coach since 2018, and according to a recent report, Indy may add its second former Eagles quarterback to its roster in as many seasons.

Might former Eagles OC Frank Reich and quarterback Nick Foles reunite in Indianapolis?

There’s no denying that Nick Foles‘ best years in the NFL have come while leading the Philadelphia Eagles offense. He’s started 32 regular-season games as Philly’s signal-caller (and another eight during the postseason). That’s led to 58 touchdown passes in the regular season, 11 more in the playoffs, and four playoff wins.

He spent the 2017 season with Reich as his offensive coordinator. We all know how that ended up. The plot has seemingly thickened.

According to a report by Zak Keefer of The Athletic, the Colts are looking to acquire the MVP of Super Bowl LII just one year after executing a trade to land Carson Wentz.

Perhaps you’ve heard. Indianapolis gave up on Carson after a single season, one in which they didn’t reach the playoffs (they made the postseason one year prior with Philip Rivers at the helm). Wentz will take up residency as the Washington Commanders’ signal-caller for the 2022-2023 NFL season.

If Foles does join the Colts, he’d serve as the backup to Matt Ryan. This also figures to be his and Wentz’s final shots to prove that they can be franchise quarterbacks. The Philadelphia Eagles face the Commanders in Week 3 and Week 10. They visit the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week 11.
