Breaking: The Eagles and Carson Wentz Have Agreed to a 4-Year Extension

6 June 2019 Uncategorized

After a day full of bowling and team bonding, tonight the Eagles organization quickly got back to work. At 7:32, the Eagles twitter page posted a video of owner Jeffery Lurie and quarterback Carson Wentz shaking hands in agreement to  a 4-year contract extension. The extension is a 4-year $128 million contract extension that includes guarantees over $107 million. Overall, Wentz has a deal of 6-years for $154 million.

Carson Wentz is everything the city of Philadelphia could ask for and more. His impact on and off the field is undeniable. In the last two years, Wentz has held a charity softball game for his AO1 Foundation. Since its beginning, this event has raised over one million dollars. Every off season, Wentz and several of his teammates have traveled to Haiti apart of Mission for Hope. They helped build the Haiti Sports Complex, a multi-purpose sports facility and education center on the Mission of Hope’s campus. Now, 15,000 children per year will have access to education tutoring, will be provided meals and vitamins to support nutrition, and have a safe place with power and internet to study. The Audience of One Foundation has invested nearly $1 million in funds for the Haiti Sports Complex.

After some Howie magic, the Eagles moved up to the second overall pick in the 2016 draft and selected Wentz out of North Dakota State University. Since entering the league,  Wentz has completed 923 of 1,448 attempts (63.7%) for 10,152 yards, 70 touchdowns, 28 interceptions and a 92.5 passer rating in 40 career games. He also holds 3 NFL records and 6 franchise records. The 2019 Eagles roster is STACKED. More importantly, Carson has looked sharp and impressive thus far this off season.

Howie and Joe Douglas have not only created a stacked roster for 2019, they are set up for the future as well. The Eagles now have veterans Wentz, Ertz, Cox, Kelce, Johnson, Graham, Jeffery, M. Jackson, D. Jackson, Bradham, and Seumalo signed for at least 3 more seasons. From the outside looking in, the team looks to be bonding extremely well. At the 2019 Autism Challenge and Wentz charity softball game, Wentz and his teammates gathered to raise money and interact with the community. They are all talented but equally as friendly. The culture in the locker room is solid and the team is ready for a deep run in 2019-20.
