Recently Andy Dalton signed a 6-year $96 million contract with the Cincinnati Bengals. With incentives this contract could add up to $115 million over the 6-year period. This now puts Dalton with the elite quarterbacks’ salary scale.There has been a lot of debate on whether he is worth what the Bengals have offered him. Dalton has won 30 regular season games but is yet to win a post-season game. The Bengals feel he is the right person to lead this team in the future.I think the reason they were willing to pay him this kind of money is that to start over with someone else would be very risky. They know Andy can win games. The very conservative Mike Brown would not have parted with this kind of money if he didn’t feel very confident that Dalton will get the job done.
