Carson Wentz will hold a news conference Monday at the NovaCare Complex auditorium to address his four-year contract extension. But the Eagles quarterback didn’t wait to express his excitement at the deal announced by the team Thursday evening.

Wentz posted a 58-second video on his Twitter account.

“What’s up Eagles Nation?!” Wentz said. “I can’t even explain to you how excited I am right now to be a part of his great city for this many more years. It means the world to me. From the moment I got drafted here, I knew this place was special. I knew they had the most passionate fans in the world in all of sports, and I knew we had the opportunity to build something truly special here and to be cemented here for this much longer means the world to me. I want to thank my good Lord and savior Jesus Christ first and foremost for just giving this opportunity and these blessings. I want to thank my wife. She’s been my rock. She’s been my biggest supporter throughout all of this. My friends, my family as well. I want to thank Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman, coach [Doug] Pederson, the entire organization, all of my teammates for supporting me. It’s going to be a fun ride. By no means is the work done. We’re just getting started. This year is going to be special, and I look forward to seeing you guys on Sundays at The Linc this fall. Thanks again. God bless. And go Eagles!”

  1. Wentz a 2 out of 3 losing seasons wentz a 6-17 vs teams over 500 wentz has zero playoff wins . Foles 9-1 vs teams over 500 and has won tons of playoff games

  2. Well, I guess we’ll sink or swim with Wentz.
    Up until now we had no obligation to him but now we do.
    So long as IR isn’t in the picture I’m cool with this, but we ALL know the poopstorm that’ll erupt as soon as he misses just ONE game.

    We’re at a crossroads, Philly… does the recent success continue? Are we solidifying ourselves as one of the Premier organizations? Or do we digress into a non-Hall of Fame franchise quarterback existence yet again?

  3. So starts the beginning of the end. In a league now with so few starting quarterbacks actually get significant injuries due to the rules he still cant bet on the field. Bad move. You better have saved some money for a great backup to split snaps because he cant survive 16 games.

  4. It’s funny reading comments from no nothing posters, to the people that matter The Eagles “ got “ their guy. The front office and the fans that have a somewhat knowledge of football realize he is the best possible QB. For this team. If your one of those claiming Foles is a better player, you really have to learn the game. The team was forced to run a high school offense with Foles. Now we can play big boy football again !

  5. With his injury history, that’s like $14 mil per game over the next 6 years…

  6. I love how the Eagles have been blessed with not only two of the best QBs the last couple of years but also two of the most humble and God loving.

    The Eagles were blessed to have Wentz and Foles in the QB room and Wentz will ensure it stays a blessing and prove all of his doubters wrong!
