PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Eagles’ fans erupted on social media after the team announced they will let quarterback Nick Foles be a free agent. Howie Roseman, the executive vice president of football operations for the Eagles, made the announcement on Wednesday.

“After a lot of conversation, we think letting him become a free agent is the right thing to do,” said Roseman.

Moments later, Eagles fans reacted to the news, many letting the former Super Bowl MVP know how much they appreciate him.
