Washington Redskins not interested in Nick Foles?

The speculation about where Nick Foles will play next season is heating up with free agency now less the a month away. 

It doesn't sound like, at least for now, the Washington Redskins will be a landing spot for the Eagles' Super Bowl winning quarterback. 

In a recent piece on ESPN, Redskins reporter Joe Keim wrote that he does not expect Washington to invest in a high-priced option at quarterback. 

Keim writes:

They’re not going to cut Smith, and with his future up in the air, they’re not going to tie themselves to another high-priced veteran.

While this is just one reporter's opinion, and it isn't a sourced report, it is certainly a noteworthy take. In an article dedicated to how Washington will replace injured quarterback Alex Smith, Keim barely brought up Foles, other than to mention the impact of Foles going to the Jacksonville Jaguars might have on Washington's attempt to land other available quarterbacks. 

REPORT: Foles interested in going to Jacksonville?

Assuming that Washington is not interested, that has to be music to the Eagles' ears, as multiple reports have suggested that the team is going to try to keep Foles out of the division. If Washington is not interested in paying what it will take to sign Foles, likely around $20-to-$25 million, that would leave only the Giants as a potential landing spot for Foles in the NFC East. 

With Washington potetially off the list of options for Foles, it looks like the quarterback is now staring at a list of landing spots that includes the Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and Giants. 

Foles is set to become a free agent on March 13th.
