I guess the Bengals are making good coin if they feel they can force the bonuses into the current year so the player is cheaper against the cap in the following years?

He receives 14 million this year, but like 12 of that is the signing bonus. The cap hit of his new deal probably isn't anymore than 5 million this season, if that...
