Eagles kicker Jake Elliott now appears to be $31,000-ish richer, after draining a game-winner from 61 yards out to beat the Giants on Sunday.
Quarterback Carson Wentz was overheard on the sidelines telling Elliott he’d give him his game check if he made the kick. That amounts to $31,764.71, and now it’s time for Wentz to pay up, which we’re sure he will, because he’s an awesome teammate and a man of his word.
In case you didn’t know, Elliott was a former Bengals practice squad guy, who was signed by the Eagles just days before the game. He’s currently playing out a one-year, $465K deal, and we couldn’t be happier for him.
Pretty cool gesture by Wentz — that’s just the type of leader he is.
