Pro career

Feeley was taken in the fifth round (155th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He spent most of his time in Philadelphia as a third-stringer, backing up Donovan McNabb and Koy Detmer. His first professional action came on January 6, 2002 when he came off the bench and rallied the Eagles to a 17-13 win in a meaningless late-season game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

When McNabb and Detmer went down with injuries in the middle of the 2002 season, it fell upon the young Feeley to preserve the team's Super Bowl aspirations. The most sober hopes were that Feeley would be just good enough to allow the Eagles to slip into the playoffs. Instead, he guided the team to wins in four of his five starts before McNabb took over in the playoffs. The 2002 NFL season was the 83rd regular season of the National Football League. ...

Feeley did not see a snap in 2003, but he showcased himself enough the year before to draw suitors from around the league. He was traded to the Miami Dolphins in March 2004 in exchange for Miami's 2004 2nd round pick (used by Philadelphia to select wide receiver Reggie Brown), and penciled in as the Dolphins' starting quarterback for 2004. Feeley was a disappointment, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns with a 61.7 quarterback rating. He and Jay Fiedler traded starts towards the latter part of the season. He finished the season with career highs in pass completions and attempts (191-for-356), yardage (1,893), touchdowns (11), and interceptions (15). Relegated to a backup role in Miami, he was traded to the San Diego Chargers midway through the 2005 season, but did not see any action all year.

Feeley was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles to replace Koy Detmer on August 30, 2006 shortly after being released by the Chargers. When McNabb was lost for the season on November 18, 2006, there was speculation that the more youthful Feeley might be named as the new starting quarterback, but head coach Andy Reid went with Jeff Garcia, who led the Eagles to a late-season turnaround and division title. Feeley did play most of the Eagles' meaningless regular season finale against the Atlanta Falcons, leading the team to victory with 321 passing yards and three touchdown passes.
