Eagles officially sign Wentz to four-year contract


The Philadelphia Eagles have officially signed quarterback Carson Wentz on a four-year deal. 

The Eagles announced on Thursday they have signed Wentz, the North Dakota State star for whom they traded up to select with the number two pick of the NFL Draft.

With Wentz under contract, the Eagles have now officially signed all eight of their draft picks. 

Wentz's four-year deal is reportedly worth $26.67million and includes a $17.6m signing bonus.

Wentz is expected to back up Eagles starter Sam Bradford in 2016 before eventually taking over. After the Eagles traded up to select Wentz, Bradford requested a trade but has since agreed to report to the team's organised team activities, which begin on Tuesday.
