An extra $250,000 is a nice chunk of change for a player who helped stabilize the Eagles offensive line amid some rocky play and injuries on the left side.
Wisniewski appeared in 14 games and made 11 starts at left guard the for the Eagles. Isaac Seumalo began the season as the starter, but he started only two games before the Eagles started rotating Wisniewski and Chance Warmack at the position. Wisniewski eventually seized the job and held onto it, though he missed some time with an ankle injury down the stretch.
Pro Football Focus ranked him as the No. 26 guard in the NFL.
According to Spotrac, Wisniewski had a base salary of $775,00 with a signing bonus of $583,333.
