HOW EAGLES CARSON WENTZ EARNED HIS $128M EXTENSION!

Since 2006, only one quarterback has achieved a higher three-year overall PFF grade (in their first three seasons) than Wentz’s 82.7 mark.

A knack for accuracy has fueled that grade, with Wentz improving from a 15th-ranked adjusted completion percentage of 74.8 in 2016 to a fourth-best rate of 78.7% in 2018.

Primarily as a result of Wentz’s growth, the Eagles have seen wide receiver Nelson Agholor blossom from a near-bust to a growing threat. Agholor notched a 52.6 overall grade in 2016 and caught just 58.1% of his targets. In 2017, it was 71.3%, and in 2018, it was 69.4%.

But still, Wentz came back from an ACL tear in 2017 and appeared to understandably regress in 2018 with a 79.4 overall grade (14th) from a remarkable prior campaign that saw him earn an 84.9 mark (sixth).

But aside from an atrocious three-interception showing against the New Orleans Saints in Week 11, Wentz was relatively stable and productive in 2018, with seven games of a passer rating above 100.0 in 11 starts.
