The New York Giants will be in the hunt for a quarterback once the new league year begins in March, but by all accounts, they’ll rely on the NFL Draft to find Eli Manning’s heir as opposed to free agency.

Still, the prospect of adding Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who is likely to become an unrestricted free agent, has to intrigue Giants general manager Dave Gettleman. After all, Foles has proven himself a valuable asset capable of winning the big one in each of the previous two seasons.

And while Foles on the Giants may intrigue Gettleman, it turns the stomach of Eagles defensive end Chris Long.

“I would hate to see him with the Giants just because I hate playing my friends, and if I end up back in Philly I’d have to play him twice a year,” Long told NJ Advance Media.

“But I think whoever gets him is going to be very lucky. He’s a leader. He’s a franchise-type quarterback. The tough thing is we have another franchise quarterback, a guy who is homegrown and is going to be a great player for a long time to come.”

The Eagles have already hitched their wagon to Carson Wentz, so Foles will certainly be on the move in 2019, likely joining his fourth team since entering the league in 2012. But whether or not the Giants are serious contenders for his services remains to be seen.

Either way, Long has no desire to play across from his friend, but that may not be a problem. It’s no guarantee he’ll be returning to Philadelphia, so even if the Giants were to sign Foles, there’s an outside chance Long would be playing elsewhere anyway.
