The Indianapolis Colts are working to add veteran quarterback Nick Foles, sources told The Athletic's Zak Keefer.

They've yet to agree on a deal, but Foles could sign as early as next week.

Foles worked with Colts head coach Frank Reich on the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2017 season. Reich was Philly's offensive coordinator when the team won Super Bowl LII with Foles under center.

The 33-year-old would be a solid backup option behind veteran Matt Ryan, who joined Indy this offseason in a trade from the Atlanta Falcons. The Colts' quarterback depth chart features second-year passer Sam Ehlinger, James Morgan, and undrafted rookie Jack Coan.

Foles spent the last two seasons with the Chicago Bears. The former Pro Bowler started only one game in 2021. He appeared in nine games in 2020, starting seven and completing 64.7% of his passes for 1,852 yards and 10 touchdowns against eight interceptions.
