Rosenhaus: "As long as I've been doing this, I've never been able to get an extension like this, basically because of the time remaining on the contract. It's historical. And it's a testament to Chad, and how well he's performed, and to Bengals management for the way they have handled this and the commitment they've made to him."

Translation: Cincy just made a stupid and completely unnecessary signing

around year 2009-2010, when 6 mil is grossly underpaid for a top 5-10 wr we will see if chad pulls a t.o.

I wonder if Cincy will still have deal with Chad having a mental breakdown at half time during the big game?

Said coach Marvin Lewis: "This is a key development for our team. It further secures our future with one of our top players, in the prime of his career

Uh..you already had him for 4 more years...which would have been the prime of his career marvin....

By 2009 I bet that his riverdances will get mighty old. I think there is some law that when a pet becomes a threat to the general well-being of the populace around it becomes necessary to put it down. It doesn't matter whether that pet is entertaining or is cute to hear when it meows extra loud to try to get attention it must be done to prevent further injury to others. From what I've heard the most humane procedure is to take it to Dr. Rooney's clinic. Their team is very professional and humane when putting down nuisances. They take the sad animal behind what they call the Steel Curtain and the animal is never heard from again. It is very sad to see any of God's creatures go but sometimes sacrifices must be made for the common good. Current price of the procedure I believe is only $55543.92 but that is only an estimate.

Because after this season he more than likely would've been asking for a new contract anyway.

The deal makes sure that Carson and Chad will be together for 6 more years. The cap hit for this year is basically the same as it was, so there should still be enough money to extend Levi Jones's contract before the season starts. Basically what you're seeing is the Bengals' attempt to keep the offense intact for a long time. Chad, TJ, Carson, Rudi, Bobbie Williams, Jeremi Johnson, and probably Levi Jones and Eric Steinbach will all be with the Bengals for at least another 3 years.

In my eyes, a pretty good move to continue a very good offseason for the Bengals...can't wait until the draft.

Good for them,they locked up loudmouth.

It doesn't matter how many TD's,yards,and catches he gets in the regular season.The Bengals will never win a Super Bowl.

Super Bowl rings:

Hines Ward: 1 (and counting)
Chad "Can't Stop 85-unless you're in the playoffs" Johnson: 0
