Guaranteed there were a lot of bets made in The Linc before Jake Elliott‘s kick heard ’round the world, but this one may be the most expensive:
As Carson Wentz watched the Special Teams line up from the sidelines, he proclaimed to the coaches and teammates around him – plus everyone in the broadcast booth listening to his microphone – that he would give the kicker a game check if he made the game winner.
We all know what happened next…
So what does the second year QB’s game check look like? At a base salary of $540,000, divided by seventeen comes out to $31,764.71 per game.
(FYI: The bulk of Wentz’s compensation comes from his $17.6 million signing bonus & $1.122 million training-camp roster bonus equaling out to about $356,646 per week in 2017.)
Carson, you son of a gun!
Update: He’s man of his word! Probably why he ok’d the release of the video.
Jake is winning everything!
