Here is a breakdown of how Wentz's contract situation will look over the next six years, according to ESPN's Field Yates:

Signing bonus: $16.3 million 

Base salary/roster bonuses:

2019: $720K (no roster bonus)

2020: $1.383 million base salary... $8 million roster bonus 

2021: $3.9 million base salary...$10 million roster bonus 

2022: $18.5 million base salary...$1 million roster bonus 

2023: $18 million base salary...$5 million roster bonus  

2024: $21 million base salary...$5 million roster bonus  

The contract also, according to ESPN, has incentives and escalators that could add an additional $16 million if reached. Those are likely things like Super Bowl wins, Pro Bowls, etc. 

One of the more interesting part of the contracts is the $30 million team option that is in the contract for the 2020 season, which could be an uncapped year. 

Although the cap hits at this point aren't completely clear (Joe Banner believes it will be an average of around 26-27 million per year), one thing does seem pretty obvious is this could end up being a very, very team-friendly deal if Wentz is able to stay healthy.
