They can't offload the foles contract and that's a huge part of all of it. this draft is loaded at quarterback in the league is already thin at positions that are open, you could see anywhere from 4 to 7 for more full-time starters be free agents this offseason and switch teams. Who's going to take Foles contract? lol
