Carson Wentz just got PAID.
The Eagles gave Wentz a four-year, $128 million contract extension Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. $107 million of the deal is guaranteed.
Carson Wentz’s deal also can escalate from $128 million to a max value of $144 million, per source. https://t.co/ye8feLiGSy— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 7, 2019
The Wentz extension continues the Eagles' trend of locking up key players long-term. However, this deal certainly comes with some risk.
Wentz has missed significant time to injury recently, most notably tearing his ACL at the end of the 2017 season, watching from the sidelines as Nick Foles led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl title. He also missed five games last year, sustaining a back injury near the end of the season.
Wentz has proven he can play close to an MVP level when healthy and clicking. But his health, as the last two seasons have shown, is a major question.
And in the greater context of the NFC East, the Eagles locked up Wentz long-term, Dak Prescott is likely next with the Cowboys, and the Redskins and Giants drafted their QBs of the future in Dwayne Haskins and Daniel Jones, respectively. For now, the QB situation in the division looks quite clear.
