The Chicago Bears are doing one of their players a favor.

Chicago on Saturday agreed to release Nick Foles at the veteran quarterback’s request. Foles’ agent shared the news and praised Bears general manager Ryan Poles for the classy move.

The Bears attempted to trade Foles, who is in the final year of a 3-year, $24 million deal. They found no takers and will have to take the $7.6 million cap hit.

The 33-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Bears. He played in one game last season and nine the year before.

Foles led the Eagles to a Super Bowl win during the 2017 season with an incredible postseason run. He hasn’t been able to recapture the magic too well since then and is likely to serve as a backup from here on out.
