My guess is that he gets 6-7 yr, $65mil - $75mil, with at least $30 million up front or in guaranteed salary. The Rooneys will NOT short-change him. They understand the PR disaster that would ensue if they somehow let their franchise QB get away.
No...

I see a 10 year, 90-100 million, 50-60 upfront/guaranteed, with about another 10 to 15 mill in bonuses, including career records bonuses possibly.

With as young as he is, and how salaries are booming, we would be silly to do anything else. In 7 years, that salary cap hit will be seen as small potatoes in comparison to other players of his capacity.

Preacher that sounds about right and like you said in a few years that will not seem like much.

No way they should be talking about 10 years. That's a long time to commit that much money to one guy.

tell that to the steelers from the 90's-2004 lol . really, sometimes it seemed like they thought the QB was just another player

I'm glad Ben wants to stay and I can't wait to see him back next season even better
