“Simply to set issues straight: My man Jake Elliott and I are excited to be donating and serving to out a charity of his selection!”
That’s what Wentz tweeted Wednesday afternoon as a response to the hubbub surrounding a video that captured the QB saying he was going to offer his paycheck to Elliott if the kicker made a recreation-profitable subject objective Sunday towards the New York Giants.
Wentz didn’t embrace a greenback determine.

Elliott boomed the sixty one-yard kick by way of the uprights (barely) and the Eagles beat the Giants 27-24 at Lincoln Monetary Subject.
The video hit the Web on Tuesday when the Eagles posted it on their Twitter account. It went viral, in fact, due to Wentz promising 3 times to pay Elliott if he made the kick — and due to Wentz’s excited response when the kick was good.
Wentz’s annual base wage is $540,000 (bonus cash makes his complete wage greater), so 1/seventeenth of the wage is $31,764.seventy one. That made it a fair higher story.
The subsequent query was: Will Wentz truly pay up?
On Wednesday morning, Wentz went to Twitter to let the world know (in a superb-natured method) he and Elliott have issues “labored out.” Wentz didn’t present any particulars. They’ll probably come later when the quarterback meets with the media for his weekly press convention.
Right here’s the unique video:
