The details of the new Carson Wentz contract have become known. As usual, however, the full and accurate details will not be known until the full contract can be verified.
According to several reports, the four-year extension of Wentz has a base value of $ 128 million. However, as there are no actual contract renewals, only new contracts written and executed from scratch, Wentz has now signed a six-year contract with an underlying of $ 154.7 million. (The additional $ 26.7 million comes from the $ 4 million in base salary that Wentz will receive in 2019, plus the annual salary of $ 22.7 million for the option he would have earned in 2020.)  These figures show a new money averaging of $ 32 million and a total value at signing of $ 25.7 million.
Following the new money metric, Wentz only landed behind Russell Wilson ($ 35 million), Ben Roethlisberger ($ 34 million) and Aaron Rodgers ($ 32.5 million). However, based on the total value at signing, Wentz lands behind such greats as Kirk Cousins ($ 28 million) and Jimmy Garoppolo ($ 27.5 million).
The warranties are reportedly over $ 100 million. But the first reports always blur the line between true guarantee and infringement guarantee, with reporters indicating the higher (and inaccurate) number than the return to obtain the information before it is available through other sources such as the NFLPA Database. The full picture of the Wentz guarantees is probably not known until several days later.
Ultimately, at least for the time being, it can be called a win-win deal. While the salary cap is rising (based on a new CBA, new TV deals and the still vague impact of gambling on total revenue), Wentz's deal could soon be out of date, but he will remain tied to the team until 2024.
] That said, the new money average will be impressive given that Wentz suffered injuries in two consecutive December season finishes. The Eagles take a calculated risk and put a big bird on the table before Wentz proves he can stay healthy long enough to kill, cook and eat.
Wentz could have done better after 2019, but also did worse. And it is one thing to repel what a player wants in the summary. It is quite another thing to say "no thanks" when the team makes an offer that the player can not refuse for practical reasons.
