Was critical. Make them all pay more including the Dak deal.
Yea, the Birds knew what they were doing here. It's not a win-win though. Either the Birds or Carson is going to give something away with the early signing. Then again how much can Wentz get screwed if somebody hands you $77million?

At some point Carson won't be highest paid and it wouldn't bother me one bit if Dak got paid much more than Wentz. I don't know Carson one bit so I have no idea if that would bother him but I would hope he would realize that all it does is put the pinch on the cowgirls sal cap.

Not sure why Banner has to go on ESPN to declare how great a deal the Eagles got by spending $35 million to control Wentz for 4 years. Maybe he is right, and maybe not, but why tell your franchise QB that you think you pulled one over on him? Sounds like the return of an unchecked ego.

I have to view this as a good move. The Eagles went all in on Wentz, so it makes complete sense to get this deal done now, before the market increases, which it surely will. As noted, he needs to stay healthy and earn the money on the field.

That said, I'd really like to be a fly on the wall for Dak's agent and the Jones fellas in big D. I mean, I think we all agree that, from a talent aspect, Carson has a bit of an edge on Dak, but the painful truth is that Dak hasn't missed any time. I think the Jones will want to pay Dak less than Carson, but I think Dak is going to want a bit more.

I suppose that it never occured to the friekin POS Weasel that maybe, just maybe Carson was different and decided to leave some money on the table for his teammates instead of milking the franchise dry like other QBs do. He couldn't fathom that somebody might be be comfortable on a guaranteed $77million when he could have held out for another 20 or 30 more because he's not greedy. Nope, that thought couldn't possibly have entered that cheap egotistical SOB's mind. And he wonders why he doesn't have a job.

Two people who never did themselves any favors by talking to the media. Joe Banner and Donovan McNabb. And still, neither one of them has learned to just STFU.

Here is the contract breakdown for Wentz

Signing bonus: $16,367,683
Base salary/roster bonuses:
2019: $720K
2020: $1.383M & $8M
2021: $3.9M & 10M
2022: $18.5M & $1K
2023: $18M & $5M
2024: $21M & $5M
Team option for 2020: $30M
Incentives/escalators: $16M

2020 is the highest paid year. 30 mill plus the prorated bonus so its around 33 million, then it goes down.

Really a good deal for both sides. Cap hits from 21-24 will most likely be bargains based on others when they get paid and also the cap increases.

Thanks Taz.

it does make you laugh when the media just focuses on 32 mil a year. It was an extension and had guarantees

very fair deal for both sides IMHO

the hard part for Wentz is he is past the love stage from fans and is now in the expectation stage. Fans are not going to be as easy on him anymore
