Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown spoke with reporters after the NFL’s annual meetings this week.  He covered many topics, including the future of quarterback Andy Dalton, who has two years left on his current deal.

Brown said the 31-year-old has to re-establish himself before the Bengals will considering signing him to an extension. 


“I think it’s a good year for (Dalton) to show like he can, like we think he will. After he re-establishes himself we would want to get together with him and see if we can extend it. 

“I think Andy is a good player and that he will rebound off last year. He was hurt. We lost so many other pieces. It fell apart, but if he’s healthy and we stay healthy enough, I have confidence in him.” 

I must have missed something, because I don’t remember when Dalton was ever established.  Don’t you have to rack up a few playoff wins before you can be considered established?
