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.
