Nick Foles looked terrific for the Philadelphia Eagles during the preseason which made the decision to release backup Mike Kafka much easier. Kafka is drawing interest from a number of teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a report from Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com.

Other teams reportedly interested include the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns. As PFT points out, Kafka is appealing because he is due minimum base salaries and is under contract for two more years. Brian Hoyer, meanwhile, is due nearly $2 million on his restricted free agent tender (second round level).

Kafka is only 25 years old and a fourth round pick by the Eagles in the 2010 NFL Draft.

The Browns are the only team on that list who have a higher waiver priority than the Chiefs.

KC's backup situation isn't ideal right now. Brady Quinn has looked average at best in the preseason while Ricky Stanzi is clearly behind him. Quinn also suffered a neck injury in Thursday's game, but we don't know the severity of it.
