The Chiefs are declining their option on backup quarterback Nick Foles.
The move was widely expected because Kansas City is hard against the salary cap, and letting Foles go saves $6.75 million. But it also means that Tyler Bray — who has never played a regular-season game — becomes the backup to Alex Smith.
Foles won the only game he started for the Chiefs last season, when Smith had a concussion. Other teams will almost certainly show interest in Foles as a backup or even a starter.
The Chiefs could also bring him back on a less expensive deal.
