Nick Foles is an American football player who mans the quarterback position for the Chicago Bears of the NFL. The Bears acquired him from the Jaguars in March 2020. Since he kicked off his professional career with the Philadelphia Eagles, Nick has also played for other NFL teams such as the St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was crowned the Super Bowl LII MVP in 2017 after leading the Eagles to win the Championship.
Nick completed his college career with the Wildcats football team of Arizona University. He was drafted to join the NFL in 2012 by the Philadelphia Eagles in the third round of the year’s draft.
A Look At His Career Earnings Through His Journey In NFL
Nick Foles was picked by the Philadelphia Eagles as the 88th overall player during the NFL draft of 2012. His four-year rookie deal earned him $390,000 as his basic salary and $135,000 in signing bonus.
After the 2014 season, Nick Foles was traded to the St. Louis Rams (now Los Angeles Rams) for a fourth and second-round draft picks in 2015 and 2016. He penned a two-year deal worth $24.5 million with the team. However, there was no contract extension for him following his performance in the seasons. Los Angeles Rams released him on July 27, 2016.
Following his rough season with the Rams, Nick contemplated bowing out. But then came the Kansas City Chiefs which offered him a one-year deal worth $1.75 million, plus a second-year option for 2017 worth $6.75 million. He would also take home $16 million if his performance in the Chief’s 2016 season was great. Unfortunately, the Chiefs declined a second-year option on his contract, making him a free agent.
Nick Foles’ career improved when he returned to the Philadelphia Eagles on March 13, 2017. He signed a two-year contract worth $11 million, with $7 million guaranteed. After the 2018 season, he chose to become a free agent and would later ink a four-year deal worth $88 million with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Unfortunately for the athlete, he ended that season with just four starts in four games, throwing for three touchdowns and two interceptions. The Jaguars traded him to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a compensatory fourth-round 2020 NFL Draft pick on March 31, 2020.
Nick Foles’ Net Worth In 2020
Nicholas Edward Foles has always been an outstanding player since the inception of his career and his skills have helped him sign several contracts that hugely contribute to his jaw-dropping net worth of $13 Million with an annual salary of about $6 million.
Various reports have estimated his career earnings in the NFL at over $20 million, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see his earnings soar in the coming years if he puts up the performance that saw him became a Super Bowl MVP. At 29, Foles was named the Super Bowl’s MVP and for his win, he received $112,000 prize money. At the end of his 2017-2018 season, the young quarterback smiled home with a total of $4 million which is quite huge and rewarding for his efforts.
The NFL star may have other sources of income that are not known to the public but it is rightly held that earnings from his career are the principal source of his wealth. In addition to what he earns as salary, Nick Foles has been making money from endorsement deals. Of course, one of the major benefits of winning a Super Bowl MVP award is the many endorsements offers it attracts. After the win, Foles made a pact with Disney. His long tradition of announcing his trip to Disney World turned into an ad that has been used since the week after the big game.
Moreso, Nick has an endorsement deal with apparel brand Lululemon. In 2019, he became the clothing company’s first mainstream athlete to sign with the brand. Although the terms of the deal are not known, we sure believe the pay is good. His GMC car and a $3.5 million house in Austin, Texas are proof of how wealthy he has become.
The NFL Star Met His Wife In College
The quarterback is married to his long time girlfriend named Tori Moore. She is a California native born on June 6, 1990. Her real name is Victoria Danielle Moore. Back in high school at Brea Olinda, she was popular for her skills in Volleyball.
Tori attended the University of Arizona where Nick acquired his communication degree. She also played volleyball for the Arizona Wildcats.
Currently regarded as one of the cutest couples in the NFL community, Nick and Tori first saw each other on their way to their respective sports arena while in college. Subsequently, they became very fond of each other but remained good friends until after their graduation in 2011.
Shortly after graduation, the two committed to a long-distance relationship that almost got complicated as Moore was diagnosed with POTS (Postular Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). They however stayed true to each other during those trying periods. They even got engaged while Moore was admitted at the Mayo Clinic in Atlanta.
They Got Married In 2014 and Are Now Parents
Following three years of a successful relationship, the pair tied the knot at a courthouse in 2014. Nick calls his wife his backbone as she is always there cheering her husband at every game. The football quarterback further explained that his wife’s experience with POTS inspired him to fight through every huddle on his way to success.

While much has not been revealed about Tori’s career, we know for sure that she is doing a great job as Nick’s partner. Before settling down as Nick’s wife, Tori worked for Nike in Portland until she was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2013.
Nick and Tori value family above anything else and they pay attention to the times they spend together. The lovely couple became parents when they welcomed an adorable daughter named Lilly sometime in June 2017. On the 9th of February 2020, Tori announced via Instagram that she is pregnant with their second child. The couple welcomed their son named Duke Nathan Foles in June 2020.
Nick and his wife have been living happily ever after and they currently reside in New Jersey with their kids and a dog named Henry.
