The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed quarterback Carson Wentz on Thursday night. He received a four-year extension that will run through the 2024 season.

The four-years will be worth up to $128 million. He will receive a record $107 million in guaranteed money.

The $107 million guaranteed surpasses the guaranteed money that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson got in his new deal in April.

This deal adds two more years onto his rookie deal. He is slated to make $720,000 this season.

Then, in 2020, the Eagles exercised his fifth-year option for $22.7 million.

This new deal will cover the seasons 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024. He is now slated to become a free agent following the 2024 season.

The Raleigh, North Carolina native was the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Eagles. He has spent the last three seasons in Philadelphia.

Last season, he made 11 appearances, including 11 starts. He went 5-6 as a starter.

He went 279 of 401 for 3,074 yards. He also had 21 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

In his career, he has made 40 appearances, including 40 starts. He is 23-17 as a starter.

He went 923 of 1,448 for 10,152 yards. He threw 70 touchdowns and 28 interceptions.

In 2017, he was having an MVP caliber season, before suffering a torn ACL in December. He admitted that he did not play his best last season as he was recovering from the injury.

Now with this signing, the Eagles have Wentz, tight end Zach Ertz, center Jason Kelce, offensive tackle Lane Johnson, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and guard Isaac Seumalo signed for the next three seasons on offense. The defensive players — who are also signed for the next three seasons — include defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, defensive end Brandon Graham, defensive tackle Malik Jackson, and linebacker Nigel Bradham.
