  • According to Fitzgerald, QB Andy Dalton’s six-year, $96 million deal with just $17 million guaranteed comes in as the Bengals’ best contract, as it’s allowed them to maintain the depth of their roster while keeping their quarterback in place.
  • Fitzgerald considers DT Domata Peko’s two-year $9 million contract as the worst on the team’s payroll.


Browns CB Jamar Taylor, who was acquired in a draft trade with the Dolphins, says he’s looking forward to a “fresh start” in Cleveland.

“It’s definitely a fresh start for me. For what I went through in Miami, it’s all over. This is a great group of people here, a great organization, a great staff,” Taylor said, via “Nobody knows me, I know nobody. It’s just really new for me. It’s definitely a fresh start, but it’s a fresh start for everybody. None of the coaches really know a lot of these guys so everybody knows they just have to go put it on tape. You are who you put on tape and you are who you are around your teammates.
