So, here’s the good news for Andy Dalton; He and the Cincinnati Bengals just agreed to a new contract that gives the quarterback a whopping 115 million bucks over the next six years.
You didn’t read that wrong. 115 mill over the next six years. May I remind you 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick just signed a six-year deal for $126 Million?
Dalton did win thirty games in his first three seasons but went 0-3 in the playoffs with only one touchdown and six interceptions. Yikes.
So, here’s the bad news, social media is ripe with criticism.
Here are the top 12 most hilarious reactions I found on Twitter.
