Eagles sign QB Carson Wentz to massive contract extension

Carson Wentz

League sources told the NFL Network and ESPN that Wentz's extension is worth $128 million and includes guarantees of about $107 million.

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed franchise quarterback Carson Wentz to a four-year extension through the 2024 season, the team announced Thursday.

The Eagles followed through on that faith by extending Wentz while he had a year remaining on his rookie contract. With Wilson locked up for the foreseeable future, the Seahawks no longer have to worry about trying to outbid impending mega deals for younger, less accomplished, quarterbacks like Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Dak Prescott, and Patrick Mahomes.

Wentz responded to the deal on social media with a message about playing for "the most passionate fans in the world".


"I can't even explain to you how excited I am right now to be a part of this great city for this many more years", Wentz said in a video posted on Twitter.

Wentz, 26, has missed the end of the last two seasons with injuries, but in 40 games he's completed 64 percent of his passes with 70 touchdowns and 28 interceptions and a 92.5 passer rating.

The 25-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Mississippi State, was originally selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round (135th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.

He was considered one of the leading MVP candidates in 2017 before suffering a season-ending knee injury against the Rams. Backup Nick Foles directed the Eagles through the playoffs and to a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots. He finished with 3,074 yards, 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions with a 69.6% completion rate.
