    They did the same thing last year with Palmer, signed him to a big contract and forced a large chunk of the money into the 2005 years pool.

    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...

    Thats my point, the Bengals are shelling out Cash up front. Big Cash. Really big Cash. That's a new thing.

    I didn't like this deal at first, until I looked at the numbers.

    He is extreamly young and had 10 1/2 sacks Looks like he may have some upside.
    WHEN DOES IT STOP!?!?
