Carson Wentz signs 4-year contract with the Eagles

May 12, 2016

Carson Wentz has signed his rookie scale contract with the Eagles, the team announced on Thursday.

The contract is fully guaranteed for four years and $26.7 million, and includes a $17.6 million signing bonus.

Wentz was selected with the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft, after the Eagles completed a trade with the Cleveland Browns to move into that spot.

Philadelphia is well-stocked at the quarterback position, and the team has made it clear that Sam Bradford, who was re-signed to a two-year deal worth $36 million in March, will open the season as the starter.
