The Significance of Dalton's Contract.



It was recently stated that the Bengals sent Dalton a "significant" contract offer Link to Article . As fans, we think the term significant means 'a contract that offers quite a bit of money.' However, that's not exactly what significant could mean. Now, this is speculation of course, but I have thought about it a few times. What if the term 'significant' is used to mean, an offer of great importance. Let's say the Bengals sent him a contract offer of 12 Million dollars/yr, but Dalton's camp wants more. With the cost of keeping other players being a factor in negotiations (Green, Burfict, Andre Smith's second extension, Gresham?), the Bengals could be sending Dalton a contract that is significant to the future of this team. Should he choose to turn down the contract, the Bengals may use the money to pay Burfict and other players while letting Dalton play out 2014 in a make-it-or-break-it year. This would be significant to Dalton and the Bengals' future. Now, it probably does mean that there is a heavy offer sent his way, but this is just an alternative way of looking at the wording of such a statement. Maybe it's not that they want to sign him to a 15+ million/year contract, and the offer they sent him has significance regarding the route this organization will be going in the foreseeable future. What do you think?
