It seemed like a big deal at the time.

The Eagles had beaten the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52 last Feb. 4, and MVP QB Nick Foles was anticipating a handshake from his rival Tom Brady.

Never happened.

Foles didn;t care then.

Or now.

And Foles hasn’t heard from Brady in the months since.

“No, I haven’t,” Foles said yesterday before the Birds flew to New England for tonight’s exo in Foxborough. “We both have a lot going on in our lives so, you know, in time.”

“It will happen when it happens. We practiced with the Patriots several years ago, and I got to stand there and talk to Tom for quite a bit. He’s a great guy. I have all the respect in the world for him,” said Foles.

“I think everyone’s making a really big deal out of this and it’s not a big deal at all. I’ve already talked to him before, he’s a guy I’ve always looked up to. You’ve got to admire someone who is probably the greatest ever and still going strong. I mean, even at his age he seems to get better and better. I’ve already had a conversation with him before when we practiced, so if we have one in the future, we’ll have one and it will be cool.”

Foles has moved on and says his attention is on what’s in front of him, not in the rearview, as the team heads to Foxboro.

“This is a new season, new people, new players,” he said. “Obviously we wear the same logos as last year but we both have a new identity. This is the time of year where we grow together as teams, so that’s all I’m really focusing on.”
