Default What should Ben's contract be?

Imagine you are part of the FO. What is your proposal for Ben's contract in amount and length? A few things to account for is that Flacco, Romo, Cutler, Rodgers have all had massive pay days in the past few months and this season was one of Ben's best.

without getting into Mr. Elite Flacco's ridiculous contract, Sam Bradford's and Matthew Stafford's are by far the worst offenders, closely followed by Schaub and Sanchez - look at that guaranteed dough too.

If I were Ben I'd be asking for a 5 year 80 mil extension with 50 guaranteed with some easy incentives to easily make up another 10-15 million. Big signing bonus. The Steelers and Steeler Nation should be thankful to have him and pay him accordingly.

Out of all the free agents on our team needing contracts-- Ben is the one we should not be afraid to pay for right now. Not sure how he gets snubbed in our team MVP voting every year-- if this were Antonio Brown we were talking about-- he would be wearing another uniform next year.

He will get a 5year 100million dollar contract. Cutler got overpaid for his stats which is going to drive the QB price up and hopefully Ben dosnt want more then 20 million a season

I think each player should get $5000 a game and at the end of the season each player gets evaluated and paid by the performance he has done on the field. To many fat cats in this game and the seats will continue to be more vacant as the years roll by.
