How did it go so wrong and so fast for Carson Wentz and Jared Goff?

About a year and a half ago, Wentz and Goff were the faces of their franchises, freshly anointed with two of the largest contract extensions in NFL history.

But when the 2021 league year dawns on March 17, neither Goff nor Wentz will be a part of the teams that gave them those deals.

Goff will be traded to the Lions and Wentz to the Colts, each shuttled out of town before the first years of those extensions even kicked in.

So desperate, in fact, were their original teams to get rid of these guys that they’ll incur significant salary-cap hardships to do so.

The Rams will carry a dead-money charge of $22.2 million on their cap this year as a result of Goff’s contract. That amount would be the highest single-player dead-money charge in NFL history … if not for the $33.8 million dead-money charge the Eagles have to carry for Wentz.

What does it all mean?

I don’t know about the Rams, but for the Eagles it was the biggest screw-up in modern Philly sports history.
