The Philadelphia Eagles are willing to trade reigning Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, but the asking price will be high.

According to ESPN, the Eagles are telling any team interested in obtaining Foles they are seeking more than the first- and fourth-round picks they acquired from the Minnesota Vikings for quarterback Sam Bradford.

ESPN reported the Eagles are not actively shopping Foles but are listening to offers.

The Eagles signed Foles to a two-year contract last spring and it carries a cap hit of $7.6 million. Philadelphia is projected to be approximately $9 million over the cap, making them one of three teams over the projected $178 million cap.

Philadelphia also does not own a second or third-round selection in this April's draft and last week at the NFL Combine, vice president of football operations Howie Roseman expressed a desire to add more draft picks.

Foles filled in when Carson Wentz tore his ACL in a win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.

He led the Eagles to their first title since 1960 by completing 28 of 43 passes for three touchdowns and 373 yards in a 41-33 win over New England in Super Bowl LII. Foles also caught a touchdown pass right before halftime on the famous "Philly Special" play.
