Played out of his mind.

Ugh.

I was really hoping he wouldn't sign with them. He's the best on the biz.

I really like this deal for Cincinnati, I think it definitely sets the table for what Melton will get this offseason at around $45-47.5 million which would be a great deal from a Bears fans's perspective.

Darn it!

The guy is an absolute beast. I think it's a steal for Cincy.

Yeah.. Now on to AJ Green and Michael Johnson. Not sure they will with Johnson having already extended Dunlap. Green will make big money for the next two years on his rookie deal as the fourth overall pick, plus the franchise tag the year after that. But it is in everyone's best interest to get that done ASAP.

This is a huge year for Dalton, contract wise.

He plays really good at football.

Great deal for both sides. Bengals lock him up, and he gets paid big-time very quickly (and with the right financial manager, will continue to make this early money earn more for him).

Excellent contract for the Bengals. He is receiving the same 5 years, $55 million that Calais Campbell is receiving from the Cardinals, and Atkins is clearly a better player than Campbell.

As a Jets fan, I am very happy with this contract. It likely lowers the future asking price of Muhammad Wilkerson.

Eh, lets calm down with that. They're both very good players. I wouldn't say Atkins is clearly better.

He started doing this to people

But seriously, he was always a very dynamic athlete. Even at Georgia he flashed constantly, he just didnt really sustain his play over the course of full games. But remember, he went to the Senior Bowl and dominated practices there, then he went to the Combine and put on a freak show. The only thing he really needed to do to become a terrific player was up his consistency, and for whatever reason the Bengals have gotten him to do that.

Campbell is obviously one of the best at his position, but I really don't see an argument for him being better than Atkins. I consider Atkins to be the best interior defensive lineman in the league not named J.J. Watt.

Dang. I've been joking with you for a while now about Geno signing with the 9ers and it appears it won't happen.

Congrats guys.
