Bengals QB Andy Dalton gets paid: 6-year, $96 million extension

The Bengals may not put as much of the game on Andy Dalton @andydalton14's shoulders this season, but they definitely putting more money in his pockets. Dalton signed a six-year, $96 million contract extension Monday that runs through the 2020 season.
Dalton received a $12 million signing bonus and will get an extra $5 million as a roster bonus in three days. Dalton will get as much as $25 million in the first two years of the deal. Then starting in the third year, Dalton's contract basically becomes a one-season-at-a-time deal that is all about salary, similar to Colin Kaepernick's new contract.

Fantasy Analysis:

Fantasy value: minimal. Dalton is still going to be working in Hue Jackson's run-based offense. He will not come close to reaching last year's total of 586 passing attempts. He is a safe QB2, no matter how rich he is.
