The NFL Network reports that the Eagles and former Wildcat Nick Foles have agreed to a restructured contract that will keep the Super Bowl MVP in Philadelphia this season.

Starter Carson Wentz may not be ready for the start of the season as he returns from an ACL injury. Foles was set to make a base salary of $4 million dollars this season. His new contract will include a signing bonus, performance incentives, and a mutual option for 2019.

"We love Philly, Foles told an abc station in Texas earlier this week. "I know there was some stuff going around [about] a possible trade, and I would love the opportunity to be a starter again," Foles said. "I know my spot in Philly. I think I've shown what I can do. I'm signed for one more year and I love the team, I love the city. I'm excited for Carson to get back on his feet. I'll be ready to go whenever they need me. But we'll see; just living in the moment."
