Why the Colts Wanted Veteran Backup QB Nick Foles for 2022

Indianapolis – On Monday, the Colts made it official and for the 2nd straight offseason, Frank Reich has reunited with a former Eagles QB.

  • What this means for Sam Ehlinger
  • When the Colts thought about bringing back Philip Rivers last season
  • Why they gave Foles a 2 year contract
