Carson Wentz, Eagles Agree to Four-Year Contract Extension Through 2024

Carson Wentz

Wilson's new four-year deal worth $140 million had reset the quarterback market. The extension is for $128 million with $107 million guaranteed, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Philadelphia Eagles signed franchise quarterback Carson Wentz to a four-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday. The deal will keep Wentz under contract through 2024.

Wentz' contract will pay him roughly $32 million per year, which of course doesn't top Wilson's salary of $35 million. With Jared Goff, Dak Prescott and Patrick Mahomes on the horizon, both Wentz and Howie Roseman did the best thing for the organization, getting the deal out the way, while allowing cap flexibility if his yearly hit falls in line with the $25 million per season some have been throwing around.

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

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

Wentz, who was the No. 2 overall pick by the Eagles in 2016, is making $8.4 million this season.

Wentz played in all 16 regular-season games as a rookie, but has missed eight games in the last two seasons, including five contests previous year.

Wentz's 70 touchdowns are sixth-most in National Football League history by a quarterback in his first 40 games, and his 28 interceptions are tied for the fewest among those quarterbacks. Backup Nick Foles directed the Eagles through the playoffs and to a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
