Average of $19M per year.
6 Year, $115M deal.
Hard to tell without seeing how the deal breaks down...but IMO, a little bit high for Dalton.
Hard to pay less than that for what you would consider your 'franchise QB' nowadays. Sigh.
well, he has brought the Bengals to the playoffs three times. 0-3 but still got there. has improved every year in yardages and touchdowns. needs to get his ints lower but that defense can help mask some of the breakdowns. don't know what the terms are but it is around what he is worth nowadays. might actually be a deal if he takes off and the team follows.
I think I like him more than a lot of people, but I still think this is way too high for him.
the average is shaky. what if the majority of the money is due in the last two years. can't really go on the average per year.
Agreed, considering his W-L record in the postseason is 0-3.
was it his fault?
Sure it was. People blame losses on Romo all the time...lol.
It's a tough situation. You either pay him or you find another QB and they don't have any good options on the team. Just the way of the league now.
Plus it sounds like they can get rid of him pretty easily after the second year. So it's really not a bad deal.
I think Bengals fans can live with it because Dalton makes them relevant for the first time in years, much like Romo did with the Cowboys when he took over.
If 4 years from now Dalton isnt making playoff runs, fans will count the days until he's gone much like Cowboys fans are with Romo. But Pro Bowl quality QBs dont grow on trees
$1,187,500.00/regular season game to not suck. Gotta love capitalism.
Pro Bowl QBs are root based vegetables.
He is going to need SPF90+ if he doesn't deliver in the postseason with that contract.
would think his red hair would make that mandatory.
The deal is very similar to Kaepernick's deal with the Niners. It's only like $15 million guaranteed, and the Bengals can dump him in two years with little consequence...
can't argue with that contract really.
I think those kind of deals will become the norm from now on. A very big number, but only like 10% guaranteed.
Cam Newton must be kicking himself for not being born one year earlier.
that is how contract should be. they should earn it. I applaud those guys for signing those contracts.
