Carson Wentz contract: Details and total guaranteed money


The numbers for Carson Wentz's new contract are in, and as expected, they are massive. 

According to ESPN, Wentz has signed a four-year, $128 million extension that includes over $107 million guaranteed. It can go up to $144 million with incentives. Add in the two years Wentz is currently under contract -- 2019 and 2020 -- and Wentz is now on a six-year, $158 million deal. 

The contract averages $32 million over the four new years, and $26 million over the next six. 

Here is how Wentz's deal stacks up with the top five deals other quarterbacks are currently signed to:

Russell Wilson, Seattle: $140 million, $35 million, $107 million fully guaranteed
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay: $134 million value, $33.5 million average, $78.7 fully guaranteed
Matt Ryan, Atlanta: $150 million value, $30 million average,  $94.5 fully guaranteed 
Kirk Cousins, Minnesota:  $84 million value,  $28 million average, $84 fully guaranteed
Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco: $137.7 million value, $48.7 million average, $48.7 million fully guaranteed
Matt Stafford, Detroit:  $135 million value, $27 million average, $60.5 million fully guaranteed 

Wentz's deal puts him right at the top of the list in both total money and total guarantees. His average salary of $32 million on the extension puts him, currently, fourth in the NFL. If you do the total average over the deal -- $26 million -- he is currently seventh. 

“I can’t explain to you have excited I am right now to be a part of this great city for this many more years," Wentz said after he signed the deal on Twitter. "From the moment we got drafted here, I knew this place was special. I knew they had the most passionate fans in all of sports, and I knew we had the opportunity to build something truly special here. To be cemented here for this much longer means the world to me.”

Wentz's time with the Eagles has been a rollercoaster to say the least. From a top pick to a potential MVP candidate in 2017 to the injured reserve list, Wentz has seen plenty of highs-and-lows, with his play just as unpredictable. Although he played a large role in the team winning the Super Bowl in 2017, he has also ended each of the last two seasons on the bench due to serious injuries -- a torn ACL in 2017 and a fractured back in 2018.
