$115 Million for Andy Dalton not a Good Gamble

There’s not much to like about the contract extension the Cincinnati Bengals gave QB Andy Dalton.

I didn’t like the fact that it is a six-year extension that will max out to $115 million (I don’t care if Dalton will “only” make $18 million guaranteed this season and $22 million by next February).  330 more words

It's All on Andy ... and Hue

CINCINNATI — We can debate the merits of the Andy Dalton contract, and this week in this excitable football town people will. But this is the most important factoid to take away from the contract: There is a very, very small chance the Bengals will cut Dalton in the first three years of the contract, because it’s so team-friendly; if Dalton doesn’t win a playoff game in the first two years of the deal, the value of the contract is three years, $35.5 million, according to Pro Football Talk. 2,029 more words
