Time for another edition of America's favorite game show, "try to figure out the language of new NFL contracts." Right now, all we know is that Andy Dalton has been signed to a "six-year, $115 million" extension. How is it structured? Can the Bengals get out of it if Dalton doesn't improve his game? How does this contract compare to the one Colin Kaepernick recently signed? Right now, who knows? Bring on the leaked details, baby.

As broken on Twitter by Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, the Arizona Cardinals and cornerback Patrick Peterson have agreed to terms on a contract extension. Peterson indicates the deal is for $70 million over 5 years with $48 million guaranteed, meaning one of the NFL's best cornerbacks will be plying his trade in Arizona for years to come.

Or as I titled it: A Welcome Distraction.
It would be easy to go with the flow and just shout what everyone else is shouting. The easiest thing in the world. Best of all, we all take turns labeling each other "courageous" for shouting it. But maybe all the overdramatic shouting is part of the problem.

Per Jay Glazer. Reported terms are for five years, $36.5 million. Rudolph, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, was heading into the final year of his rookie deal. Good chunk of change for a player who has never posted a positive DVOA and ranked 44th with -13.9% DVOA last year in the eight games he played last year. Of course, the Vikings QB situation had a lot to do with those numbers. That should be better this year, and we saw last year with Jordan Cameron what Norv Turner can do with tight ends.

The league's northern divisions pose a number of meaty questions, such as: "Is the Bears' offense due for a repeat performance?" "Why do the Lions have such pronounced splits?" and "Has Johnny Manziel made the Cleveland brass even crazier?"
