Clay Travis is reacting to what was another bad performance from Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia offense last night on Monday Night Football. The scoreboard looked far closer than what took place, as the Eagles scored late in the 4th quarter to lose by only 6.

Clay breaks down Carson Wentz's contract, and it does not look pretty at all if you are an Eagles fan. This year, he is making 18 million dollars off the cap, but next year, Wentz's cap hit is a whopping 34.6 million dollars. The next two seasons his cap hit is over 30 million dollars as well.
