The Eagles continue to prove that they are a class organization.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles played 357 of the Eagles’ offensive snaps this season. The team totaled 1,092. Under the new contract Foles signed in the 2018 offseason, Foles was set to make a bonus of $1 million if he were to play 33% of the snaps. Foles finished just four snaps shy at 32.69%.

Third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld took 11 snaps in relief of Foles at the end of both the Texans game (1 snap) and the Redskins game (10 snaps). If Foles had not left with what turned out to be bruised ribs in week 17, he would have made the snap count, but instead, he barely missed the mark.

Foles is not being underappreciated by the Eagles franchise, however, as they have given Foles an additional $1 million signing bonus to make up for those few snaps, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

Just days after Alshon Jeffery showed his class and love of the fanbase, the franchise showed their own classiness by taking care of those who contributed all they can to the team.
