Since the Eagles drafted him in 2016, he has flourished in the highly competitive league, helping and leading the Eagles to one of the most notable sporting victories in recent history. As his career trajectory continues to rise, here is a look at his accomplishments and how it has impacted his net worth.
Carson Wentz was a College Football Superstar
Carson James Wentz was born on the 30th day of December 1992 in Raleigh City of North Carolina, United States. He was raised by his American parents, Cathy Domres and Doug Wentz. He spent the first three years of his life in North Carolina before his family moved to North Dakota. There, he kicked off his football career at Century High School situated in Bismarck. He also participated in other sporting activities, including baseball and basketball.
Soon after his graduation, Carson Wentz enrolled at North Dakota University where he completed his college career. He was redshirted in his first year in 2011. The following year, Carson joined the college football team serving as a backup quarterback to Brock Jensen for the first two seasons. He became his team’s starting quarterback in the last two seasons of his college career, beginning his ascent into college football stardom.
Wentz was part of the North Dakota University football team that won three NCAA Championships between 2011 and 2013. However, it was during his junior and senior years that he asserted himself as the team’s best player. Carson completed 228 passes for 3,111 yards as a junior and 130 passes for 1,651 yards in his senior year.
At the end of his college playing career, he had a passing percentage of 64.1% over 5,115 yards. He also had an impressive total of 58 touchdowns to his name. Aside from his impressive football career, he also graduated in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education.
Life as an NFL Player
During the NFL draft of 2016, Carson Wentz was among the top prospects in the draft. The Philadelphia Eagles later selected him with the second overall pick in the draft. Amazingly, he was the first quarterback to be selected in the draft. Joining the Eagles, Carson penned a four-year rookie deal worth $26.67 million. He was named the starting quarterback for the team following the departure of Sam Bradford.
During his rookie year, Carson had 607 passing attempts, which became the second-highest by a rookie after Andrew Luck’s 627 in 2012. The outstanding quarterback completed 379 out of 607 passing yards as a rookie in 2016. The following year, he helped the Eagles to clinch their first Super Bowl Championship title after they beat the New England Patriots.
Entering the 2018 season as the 3rd best player in the league, Wentz’s recovery from a lengthy ACL injury caused him to miss the Eagles’ first two games of the season. He went on to appear in eleven games in the regular season, recording 3,074 passing yards and 21 passing touchdowns. However, despite a decent 2018 season, Carson Wentz was unable to return the Eagles to the height of the 2017 season. Still, he has remained an influential presence for the team, leading them to an NFC East title in 2019 and setting the record as the first quarterback in franchise history to pass for at least 4,000 yards, with 4,039 passing yards.
Since he became an NFL player, Wentz has played more than 50 games, starting every single one. He has recorded more than 14 thousand passing yards and has 100 touchdowns to his name.

An avid hunter, he is also believed to own a property in his home state of North Dakota where he often visits to go hunting.
In regards to his cars, Wentz is reported to have once gotten a loan from his father to buy a Chevy Silverado pickup truck. Having started making loads of money after entering the NFL, the American football player can afford to buy himself any car he wants and so his garage currently includes automobiles like a G-Wagon, a Corvette, a Range Rover, and a Cadillac. He most recently purchased a Lamborghini that sells for around $450,000.
Being a strong believer of Christ, Carson Wentz does not only spend his money on himself and his family as he also does a lot of charity work through his non-profit, The Audience of One Foundation or AO1 Foundation.

Carson Wentz’s Love Life and His Marriage to Madison Oberg
When Carson Wentz was drafted into the league in 2016, he was known to be dating his high school sweetheart, Melissa Uhrich. According to a New York Post article, Uhrich and Wentz went to the same high school before enrolling at different colleges where they both excelled as athletes as she was a cross country runner. The pair planned to get married someday but things did not pan out as they would have wanted as they almost soon after went their separate ways.
By 2017, almost all of Uhrich’s photos were deleted from his social media page as an unfamiliar face began appearing more often. It was later revealed that the unfamiliar face in his photos was his new girlfriend, Madison Oberg.
The pair went public with their relationship in November of that year. According to reports, Oberg and Carson met while they were a part of the Mission of Mobilization Hospitality Team that served in Haiti. Madison, who is a graduate of Missouri Southern University, worked as an intern for the team.
In February 2018, a few months after the world got to know about their relationship and less than a week after Wentz’s team had won the Super Bowl, the quarterback took to social media to announce that he and Maddie had gotten engaged.
It took the couple about four months to plan a wedding as they went on to exchange wedding vows on July 16, 2018, at the Lakehouse Inn in East Rockhill Township in Bucks County. Wentz’s teammate Zach Ertz, as well as former teammates Jordan Matthews and Trey Burton, served as his groomsmen. He had a total of about 10 groomsmen who were mostly athletes and former teammates.
The Couple Welcomed Their First Child in 2020
After exchanging marital vows, Carson Wentz and Madison made their home in Mullica Hill in southern New Jersey. They have since expanded their family with the birth of their daughter. The Eagles quarterback announced in November 2019 that the Wentz family was expecting their first child. On April 27, 2020, Hadley Jayne Wentz was welcomed to the world.
When Madison isn’t caring for her young one or cheering her husband on, she has taken to work as a philanthropist. She is notably a part of her husband’s foundation, A01 Foundation, which he founded in 2017.
