Andy Dalton contract extension: Is deal good for Cincinnati Bengals? - NFL -
When Bengals owner Mike Brown recently said that quarterback Andy Dalton was worth a new deal similar to the one 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently inked, he wasn't kidding around. On Monday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan broke the news that the Bengals and Dalton had agreed to a new six-year, $115 million contract extension that will ostensibly keep Dalton in Cincy through the 2020 season. Kaepernick signed a seven-year, $126.97 million extension on June 4.

Andy Dalton is going to be paid — in a very big way — by the Cincinnati Bengals. The quarterback, who was entering the last year of his rookie contract, and the team have reached agreement on a six-year contract extension worth $115 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It isn’t yet clear how much is guaranteed or whether this is the kind of pay-as-you-go deal Colin Kaepernick got in San Francisco.

When Cincinnati Bengals president Mike Brown told reporters two weeks ago that he liked the way his "Steady Eddy" starting quarterback played, he was telling the truth. That became evident just after 10 a.m. ET Monday, when ESPN NFL Insiders Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan reported that Andy Dalton, the much-maligned Bengals quarterback -- who was often criticized for being anything other than steady -- had signed a six-year, $115 million contract extension that will keep him in orange and black stripes through 2020.

Bon Jovi, Trump may have violated Bills’ confidentiality agreement | ProFootballTalk
With Jon Bon Jovi writing a too-little, too-late letter to Bills fans and Donald Trump being Donald Trump, both may have violated a strict confidentiality agreement signed prior to the commencement of the process for expressing formal interest to buy the Buffalo Bills.

Possibility of litigation for Josh Gordon hasn’t been discussed yet | ProFootballTalk
So what happens if/when hearing officer and NFL executive V.P. of labor relations Harold Henderson decides to apply the substance-abuse policy as written and suspend Browns receiver Josh Gordon?  Good question.

Johnny Takes Over the Ones: Training Camp Notes 08.04.2014
It’s Browns camp, and no surprise, everyone’s talking about quarterbacks! As per usual, Mike Pettine didn’t want to talk too much about today’s QB performances until he got a chance to talk to position coaches and check the tapes—after all, you can’t judge passers if the receivers are running the wrong routes. I appreciate that about Pettine. It’s not so much about avoiding the question as it is a reality of trying to take in everything that’s happening in front of him on a day-to-day basis.
