[BN] Blitz newsletter: The Bills should let someone else overpay for Nick Foles

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles just earned a Super Bowl MVP award for knocking off the Patriots. But next season he'll likely return to the backup role once starter Carson Wentz returns from a torn ACL.

That has led to much discussion about whether the Eagles should try to trade Foles while his value is the highest it will ever be. Coach Doug Pederson wouldn't address plans for next year at a press conference. But if the Eagles do make Foles available, should the Bills be in for his services?

"Someone is going to overpay for Foles after his MVP performance. He has it coming. But the Bills would be wise to let someone else do it," Jerry Sullivan wrote Monday.

"Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott don't strike me as the sort of leaders who overreact to one great run by a quarterback. The process is more careful and calculating. The Bills need a short-term answer, but I doubt they'd move precious draft assets for Foles, who would warrant a contract extension."

Bills given poor odds for next year's Super Bowl: Yes, there are already betting lines for next year's Super Bowl. The Bills were given the lowest odds by one book, 100-1, tied with the Browns, Jets, Bears and Bengals. (But if you believe in the Bills' chances, maybe now is the time to buy low.)

What does ESPN say? In their way-too-early 2018 power rankings, the Bills placed 20th, thanks in part to their uncertainty at quarterback.
