Stanton didn't see any game action his first season as a backup to Carson Palmer. In 2013, he took over as the starter after Palmer went down with an injury. Over the next three seasons, Stanton played in 51 games and started 39 times. He completed 60% of his passes for 4,428 yards with 29 touchdowns against 14 interceptions.

He will also receive another $1.85 million in roster bonuses over the next two years of the deal. The final year of the contract is scheduled to pay him $715,000.

McNabb earned a $13.5 million signing bonus on top of his $1,888,235 basic salary. He also received $77,222 in roster bonuses in 2009, 2013 and 2014.
He was scheduled to receive an additional $3 million bonus on March 17, 2015 if he met certain playing time requirements, but he was placed on injured reserve two days before that date with a separated left shoulder. The injury forced him to miss the last three games of the season.
Donovan McNabb started all 16 games for the first time in his career in 2004 when he led the Eagles to a 13-3 record and their first Super Bowl appearance. He lost to the New England Patriots in the game's first overtime period.
