The Cincinnati Bengals have been in the postseason for the past few seasons but haven’t made it out of the first round yet.
Many fans blame quarterback Andy Dalton for not coming through when he needs to, but that’s not a sentiment shared by the team. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan, the Bengals have given Dalton a six-year, $115 million contract extension.
From me and Adam Caplan:
Cincinnati and Bengals QB Andy Dalton reached agreement on a 6-year, $115 million contract, per two sources.
What the deal means is that the Bengals are now tied to Dalton for the next six years and are making him their franchise quarterback moving forward.
It’s going to be a hard sell for fans who want to see Dalton gone, but he’s not the worst option at quarterback and the team clearly believes he can lead them moving forward.
