The Philadelphia Eagles have their Nick Foles replacement.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Eagles will sign quarterback Cody Kessler on Monday, likely giving him the shot to serve as the backup to starter Carson Wentz.

Kessler could be an under-the-radar addition that matters a lot. Wentz has had injury issues, and while he’s expected to be fine going forward, that’s still a factor that bears watching. It’s probably why the Eagles opted to bring in Kessler, who has made 12 career starts and has some NFL experience, as opposed to letting the unproven Nate Sudfeld serve as Wentz’s backup.
