Carson Wentz agrees to four-year contract extension

AP

The Eagles announced a four-year contract extension with Carson Wentz through the 2024 season.

All signs have pointed to the Eagles getting a deal done with their quarterback before the season.

They had exercised the fifth-year option on Wentz’s contract, but Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman previously said he had no hesitation in extending Wentz’s deal despite back-to-back, season-ending injuries.

Wentz has never started a playoff game, with the now-departed Nick Foles leading the Eagles in the postseason the past two years with Wentz injured.

The Eagles made Wentz the second overall pick in 2016, and he has completed 63.7 percent of his passes for 10,152 yards, 70 touchdowns, 28 interceptions and a 92.5 passer rating in 40 career games.

Since his record-breaking season in 2017, Wentz ranks third in the NFL in passing touchdowns per game (2.3), trailing only Patrick Mahomes (3.1) and Andrew Luck (2.4), and fifth in passer rating (102), behind Mahomes (111.7), Drew Brees (109.5), Deshaun Watson (103.1) and Russell Wilson (102.1) among those quarterbacks who qualify.

  1. Injuries are the only concern with him….Other than that he is a top 10 QB for years to come.

  2. WTH has he done to earn this extension? The Eagles are fools. They had a winner in Foles, now they extend an arrogant, fragile, darling?

  3. Mr. Genius…

    Dummy you don’t pay a qb to put up stats you pay him to win games and make guys around him better Carson wentz is a virus zero playoff wins and makes guys around him worse

  9. Stop complaining philly fan. He got you a SB at least. Granted Foles had to close it out but still. You guys are the worst fans ever. Bunch of cry babies.

  10. danny woodson, why are you so salty? Could it have anything to do with the fact the NY Giants are 4-18 in their last 22 games against the Philadelphia Eagles? Who’s your daddy, danny?

  11. They should have paid Nick Foles and shipped unproven, injury prone Wentz out of town.

  12. A poster took the time to list QB stats-as the great Bill Belichick once said “stats are for losers, “LOL. The ONLY thing that matters are Super Bowl wins, as a matter of fact the Pats are getting theirs tonight!
    Six for TB12!!

    Dude, what on EARTH are you smoking? Nearly every philly fan is celebrating both QB and loving this new contract. First freaking comment is “Wentz Wagon rolls on.” You fans of other teams who constantly bombard articles to try and troll Philly fans who don’t care about is what is truly pathetic. Who cares about the truth though right? You are the worst you moron.

  14. Foles has never played a full season either so I will never understand this debate.

  15. Football is is a tough sport ,,people get hurt ,some players stay healthy and never get hurt but are easy to play against ,ie Eli Manning ,Carson even banged up is hard to play against so ,Carson healthy really really hard to play against ,,all this adds up for trouble for the Giants !

  16. Good signing and good timing for the team. Better now than after a monster season when he has the team over a barrel. Separates teams like the Eagles from, let’s say, the Redskins.

  17. Eagles play much better with Foles Howie roseman worst gm in sports same dope that gave Michael Vick 100 million dollars Wentz 2 out of 3 losing seasons wentz is 6-17 vs teams over 500 wentz has zero playoff wins . Foles with same exact team 9-1 vs teams over 500 and has won tons of playoff games. Carson wentz is a virus he makes everyone around him worse wentz will Never win a Super Bowl

  18. Can’t evaluate this without knowing some details, like guaranteed money and bonuses. If structured properly, the team can escape in a year or two and move on if need be.

  19. Foles is a better QB, plain and simple. Wentz will never win a Super Bowl by himself. Glad the Eagles locked him up.

  20. The team ACTUALLY scored more points with Wentz last year than with Foles. The defense just happened to give up more points in games started by Wentz. If he played defense I could see your arguement. If he wasn’t playing with a fractured back (starting in October) and wasn’t coming off of a knee reconstruction I could understand. Let’s see how he is this year and if he can statu healthy. He’s shown an ability to be really good. Only thing he’s not shown me as an Eagles fan is the clutch gene.

  21. Try Jeff Lurie and Andy Reid gave Vick the big contract. Roseman had a title next to his name but Lurie/Reid had final say on contract,roster moves and draft picks

  22. “leroyquimby says:

    Carson played a full 16 his rookie year. As for the debate it’s a mixture of idiot Eagle haters and trolls trolling.

  23. Wow, I’m gonna try and get my son to be a back up… at this rate a back up will be making 20+million a year…

  24. Wentz’s had a rib injury on a vicious hit in pre season and went on to start all 16 games his rookie year. He was a leasing MVP candidate when he got injured when two players hit his knee simultaneously. The surgeon who repaired the knee said his knee looked like a train wreck yet he still returned less than 9 months latter and that led to the back injury. Now two years removed from his injury with no cumbersome brace I expect Wentz to return to MVP form. Without him the Eagles don’t start the season 11-1 or even make the Super Bowl. Great signing now let’s kick some ass.

  25. Who wants to be the guy that writes that check? For the frugal owner it might be time to emphasize the running game as a opposed to a passing game.

  26. If Wentz stayed healthy during the Super Bowl year, they would not have won it all. The team, as a whole, played much better under Foles. Foles delivered and the Eagles let him go. Seriously?

  27. Well the ignorance on this board is amazing. I’m pretty sure 2/3’s of the teams in the NFL would be very happy to take Wentz any day of the week. The kid is drama free, and very solid guy off the field (there will never be a problem). Solid guy in the locker room, great leader. Let’s see how Foles does this season. Now nothing against Foles, he is a solid guy too and and good player. But to compare the 2 is just stupid, no one in their right mind would pick Foles, except idiotic Eagles fans that don’t know a lick about football.
