Eagles lock up franchise QB Wentz with extension

Carson Wentz

He signed a four-year, $140 million deal with $107 million in guarantees.

Both the Eagles and Wentz have made it clear this offseason that both hoped to get a deal done, so it was considered just a matter of time before the deal was official.

ESPN reports the extension is worth $128 million, with a max value of $144 million and a record of more than $107 million guaranteed.

The Philadelphia Eagles locked up franchise quarterback Carson Wentz on Thursday, with the sides agreeing to terms on a four-year contract extension through the 2024 season. Wentz seemingly signed for less money than he could have gotten at over $25.5 million annually over the next six years with incentives to make more.

Wentz shared a video expressing his excitement about staying in Philadelphia for the foreseeable future.

The principal of the school in Doonbeg says pupil numbers have increased due to the success of Donald Trump's nearby golf resort. Tommy Turbidy, the owner of the pub, added: "Well it's like this, people like us are really down to earth people".

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.

The Eagles traded up to use the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft on Wentz, who played his college football at North Dakota State. Wentz struggled last season in his return from the injury and was also shut down early due to a back injury.

He was considered one of the leading MVP candidates in 2017 before suffering a season-ending knee injury against the Rams.

Prescott is coming off of a 2018 campaign in which he threw for 3,885 yards, 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions while completing 67.7 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 96.9 en route to a Pro Bowl appearance.
