Carson Wentz and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie explain why the team signed Wentz to a contract extension.

PHILADELPHIA – Eagles coach Doug Pederson was ecstatic Tuesday that all of his players are present for this week of mandatory minicamp.
That included safety Malcolm Jenkins, left tackle Jason Peters, right tackle Lane Johnson and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery. All four had stayed away from the organized team activities over the past three weeks, all of which were voluntary.
Carson Wentz’s new contract is a risk, reward for him and the Philadelphia Eagles
It was believed, as recently as last week, that Jenkins would skip the minicamp this week, presumably because he wanted his contract redone. Players can be fined for missing the minicamp. But Jenkins reported Monday for his physical, and Jenkins then went through practice Tuesday.
He was with the first team, next to Andrew Sendejo. Peters and Johnson also took part inn the team drills. Jeffery only took part in the individual and 7-on-7 drills.
