Your Friday Morning Roundup

It was a pretty good day for the Eagles. First off, Doug Pederson cancelled their final OTA practice and took the team bowling instead.

Then, Carson Wentz signed a really big contract extension. According to Adam Schefter, it’s for four years and worth $128 million. $107.9 million is guaranteed and $66 million is due at signing. That can be maxed out to $144 million based on incentives. His total deal is now six years for $154 million, which can go up as high as $170 million.

It’s not a surprise Howie Roseman and Jeffrey Lurie wanted to keep him in Philly for the long-term despite the recent injury concerns. That’s a huge deal, but that’s what quarterbacks are getting. Russell Wilson signed a four-year, $140 million extension with $107 million guaranteed.

But unlike Wilson, who tweeted out a video in the early morning hours with Ciara in bed, Wentz tweeted out a video of himself at NovaCare thanking fans. You may judge that part however you want:

So cool, Wentz is an Eagle. He can get to know how to pronounce JJ Arcega-Whiteside’s name correctly.

His deal is done. Malcolm Jenkins is probably next. And who knows what Joe Douglas is gonna do.

The Roundup:


The Sixers found one of their new coaches in former Spurs assistant Ime Udoka. He interviewed for the Cavaliers head coaching job before John Beilein got it. I’ve never heard of him, but this comment makes me feel good about the hire.


The Phillies returned home yesterday to honor the memory of former chairman David Montgomery.

Outside the ballpark, an Odubel Herrera banner was taken down.

Meanwhile, most of the team’s top picks since 2004 have SUCKED.

The Phils host the Reds this weekend at Citizens Bank Park. First pitch tonight is at 7:05 PM on NBC 10. Zach Eflin takes the mound against Tyler Mahle. Nick Pivetta and Aaron Nola (a first round pick that turned out to be great) will also pitch this weekend.


In other sports news, the Blues defeated the Bruins 2-1 in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to take a 3-2 series lead. St. Louis won the game on this controversial no-call:

Yeah that’s a trip.

The Braves are signing former Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel.

Is Kyle Lowry as good as our Kyle Scott thinks? Makes you wonder.


In the news, the Philly NewsGuild is not interested in taking more buyouts at the Inquirer.

A man was arrested for planning to detonate grenades in Times Square.

    Sean Brace sitting with his feet on the wood at Finals games pisses me off.

    They didn’t “win the game” on the non-call. Terrible goal given up by Rask. After all the home cooking the Bruins have had the first three rounds, for them to complain about a missed call as much as they are is comical. Didn’t hear much complaining about the refs when they were getting all the calls, did we?

    Sure, it’s a bad non-call. But they only scored one goal. Gotta do better than that.
