Eagles’ Carson Wentz (second from left) and Alshon Jeffery (right) celebrate with Jake Elliott (center) after kicking the game-winning field goal against the Giants.

Jake Elliott’s annual salary with the Eagles is $465,000. Could Carson Wentz chip in another $31,764?

Wentz wore a microphone during the Eagles’ 27-24 win over the New York Giants. While Elliott lined up for a record-setting 61-yard, Wentz turned to those around him on the sideline and said, “This guy’s a superhero if he makes this. …I’ll give him my game check if he makes it.”

Wentz’s annual base salary is $540,000 (bonus money makes his total salary higher), so 1/17th of the salary is $31,764.71.
