– Carson Wentz heard about Alshon Jeffery’s contract extension on Saturday morning and made a beeline to his top wide receiver to congratulate him.
Teammates offered some good-natured ribbing about Jeffery’s four-year, -million contract, but Wentz made sure Jeffery knew how happy he was.
Jeffery quickly assimilated with his new teammates, and he insisted his new contract was a tribute to all of them. “The whole locker room.” It also helps to have Wentz.
We reserve the right to permanently block any user who violates these terms and conditions.Wentz’s presence was part of the reason he initially signed with the Eagles and it was a reason he wanted to stay when the price was right. “For a second-year player, his maturity level is up there with some of the best, some of the greats.” Wentz hasn’t been shy this season about how much it helps to have Jeffery.He said he does not get involved in contract decisions, and he has enough to worry about during the season that he doesn’t involve himself in personnel decisions.“At the same time, we’re really focused on this year, too.But I’m really thrilled that he’s going to be here for a couple of years.” The Eagles are in the playoff hunt, and that has devoured all their focus during this week in Southern California while preparing for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.
