Carson Wentz and Eagles agree to 4-year extension

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, quarterback Carson Wentz and the Eagles have agreed to a four-year contract extension.

Wentz will receive $128 million throughout four years, says Schefter. That’s $32 million per year, making him the fourth highest-paid quarterback in the NFL. $107 million of the deal is guaranteed, which “is the largest guarantee given to an NFL player.”

Eagles exercised Wentz’s fifth-year option in late April, with a cap hit of $22 million in 2019. This extension was a much expected move between the two parties, for which has now officially happened.

In Wentz’s rookie season, he threw 16 touchdowns for 3,782 yards, and 14 interceptions. Wentz had a phenomenal year in 2017… The MVP-caliber quarterback threw 33 touchdowns, 3,296 yards, and just seven interceptions. Unfortunately, he ended his season after tearing his ACL in the Week 14 match-up opposing the Los Angeles Rams.

In 2018, Wentz returned against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. He ended this past season with 21 touchdowns, 3,072 yards, and seven picks.
