Andy Reid and Jeremy Maclin are very familiar with Nick Foles.
Reid coached Foles in Philadelphia during the 2012 season, while Maclin was catching passes from the signal caller for three seasons.
Both are big believers in Foles’ abilities.

“You are asking one of Nick Foles’ biggest fans,” Reid said, via StLouisRams.com. “He is smart, he has good accuracy, and he is a big body — a big strong guy, and he is young. He is going nowhere but up here.”
Maclin had similar praise for the young quarterback.
“People can expect him to go out there and compete every single day," Maclin said, via StLouisRams.com. "That’s the type of person Nick is. He’s also a guy that, as far as talent, can make every throw on the football field.”
The Rams signed Foles to a two-year extension this offseason and likely saw the same qualities Reid and Maclin see.
They can only hope it translates to success in 2015.
