The Bengals showed their commitment to Andy Dalton as their QB of the future by giving him one of the largest contracts in the league.
The Cincinnati Bengals have signed QB Andy Dalton to a six-year extension worth approximately $115 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Dalton has led the Bengals to three straight playoff appearances and set multiple team records for passing in 2013 en route to the AFC North division title. He was named to the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2011. However, Dalton has failed to win a single playoff game in his three playoff appearances, earning criticism by many in the Bengals fanbase.
