Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles reached an agreement Thursday on a four year contract extension that will keep him in Philadelphia through the 2024 season.
The monetary terms of the deal were not released yet.
The 26 year old North Dakota State Product threw 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his rookie season. The had a breakout season in 2017 where he threw for 3,296 yards with 33 touchdowns and seven picks across only 13 appearances.
Wentz season was cut short when he tore his ACL in Week 14 against the Rams. However Nick Foles would take the starting QB role and lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
In the 2018 season while he performed well he would only play 11 games, first waiting for his ACL to heal and then have his season end early for a reoccurring back injury.
Wentz contract extension was a guarantee when they let Nick Foles walk instead of signing himas the potential future of the franchise or the strongest backup in the NFL for Wentz.
