50M guaranteed, 88M total (which he won't see).
The FO backed themselves into a corner. It was either ride out Minshew and admit they made a mistake with a 6th round QB outperforming their golden child or ride out Foles and pray he can do well. The latter gave them a shot at redeeming themselves (at the expense of disrupting momentum and losing games) whereas the former didn't.
Foles may not be healthy but either way he isn't that guy that comes in and elevates your offense or extends drives (like Minshew) that they hoped he thought he was. He is a great backup that can play to the level of those around him. He wasn't worth the contract and was put into a terrible situation.
