I know we backed up the Brinks truck for Carson Wentz, but I didn’t think it was to the tune of him being on the list of Top 10 richest athletes in the world. He only gets $4 million of endorsements from Nike, Bobcat, BOSE, Amazon, NRG, & Sanford Health and the rest of his money comes from the Birds. I didn’t think Carson was floating in the same lazy river as Tiger, LeBron, Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar, or Fed. Maybe he’s joining the one name club right before our eyes. We might have to make Carson a one name guy from now on. What other Carson’s would you be talking about other than him? Palmer? Nope. Johnny? Dead. Daly? Maybe if this was 2002 and TRL was still on fire. Other than that Carson is a prime name for YouTube/TikTok stars and NFL QBs.
Obviously once Patrick Mahomes and Dak Prescott sign Carson’s going to be just another athlete making a bunch of money in obscurity. Which is fine because I don’t need sports radio getting their hands on this data and crafting the narrative that Carson should be taking the Eagles to the Super Bowl every year because he’s rich as fuck. Maybe him leading a bunch of scrubs to a division title last year was enough to get the monkey off his back, but not in this town.
I can set the scene now after a bad loss against the Redskins or Rams in Week 2 and we’re in “sky is falling” mode. A sports radio host will dig up this graphic out of the Outrage file on their Desktop, and the first thing they say is, “I want to read you this list…” I don’t know what it is about sports radio hosts, but they love starting with “I want to read you this list..” before they make their points. I feel like that’s sports radio guy 101. Just have a list in your back pocket at all times.
Now this is the part of the blog where we just shower you with pro-Carson stats to prove to you he’s worth all that money.

Imagine being the richest person in the NFL and you’re Kirk Cousins. Highway robbery. If I’m Kirk I’m going double birds to the haters and then going back to read the King James Bible at my compound.
