The Bengals weren’t lying when they insisted all offseason that Andy Dalton was their guy.
According to Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan of ESPN, the Bengals have given Dalton a six-year, $115 million contract extension.
As with all such deals, the details will tell us more than the first wave of numbers.
But it does speak to their commitment to Dalton.
The former second-rounder has kept them consistently competitive, but hasn’t delivered a playoff win yet.
If his numbers are truly like what they’re reported to be, that will be expected to change, and soon.
