Dalton, who signed the deal Monday, had one year remaining on his rookie contract and was scheduled to make slightly less than $1.7 million. The Bengals announced the extension Monday without disclosing financial terms. This past weekend, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said Dalton's play during training camp has been "sensational." "I've been very pleased with where he is and where he's headed," Jackson said. "It's our whole football team. "I've been impressed with him since I've gotten to be the coordinator, but I've been really impressed with him over the last couple of days, because I think he's really starting to buy in to the urgency, getting the ball out of his hands and making great decisions. That was a great throwaway when we were backed up. There were times in the past the ball might have gone someplace else." The Bengals, however, are still waiting for Dalton to be sensational during the postseason, when he is 0-3 as a starter. Dalton has guided the Bengals to a 30-18 mark during the regular season and three straight trips to the playoffs. His career QBR during the regular season is 51.5; it is 18.1 in postseason play. Bengals owner Mike Brown had said during camp that Dalton will be "the quarterback here for the immediate future." Cincinnati opens its preseason Thursday night at Kansas City. -------------------- WOW I had a hard time justifying Flacco's $120MM deal but at least he won a Super Bowl. A complete overpayment for an average to above-average QB who is 0-3 in the playoffs (56% completion, 1 TD 6 INT).
