Wentz: Jumped at $128M deal; 'was a win-win'
Carson Wentz said he believes his $128 million contract extension is a "win-win" for both him and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The four-year extension the team announced Thursday lasts through the 2024 season and includes $107.9 million guaranteed, including $66 million due at signing, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
"It's something both sides wanted to get done. I knew I wanted this to be home for a long time, and ever since being drafted, it's felt like home," the quarterback said at a news conference on Monday. "So as soon as we found something that was a win-win, a really fair opportunity, I jumped at it, just because I love this place and I want to be here for a while, so I felt it was a good time."
Wentz's extension came after the Seattle Seahawks gave Russell Wilson a four-year, $140 million extension with $107 million in guarantees in April.
