Shortly after agreeing to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles on a four-year contract extension worth $128 million, Carson Wentz took to Twitter to send a message to the fans.

“What’s up, Eagles Nation! Can’t even explain to you how excited I am right now to be a part of this great city for this many more years. It means the world to me. From the moment I got drafted here, I knew this place was special. I knew they had the most passionate fans in the world in all of sports. And I knew we had the opportunity to build something truly special here and I’m cemented here for this much longer. It means the world to me. I want to thank my good Lord and savior Jesus Christ first and foremost for just giving me this opportunity and these blessings. I want to thank my wife. She’s been amazing. She’s been my rock. She’s been my biggest supporter throughout all of this. My friends and my family as well. I want to thank Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman, Coach Pederson, the entire organization, all of my teammates for supporting me. It’s going to be a fun ride. By no means is the work done, we’re just getting started. This year is going to be special. And I look forward to seeing you guys on Sundays at the Linc in the fall. Thanks again, God bless, and go Eagles!”
