I think it will be more in line with what Tony Romo got but with more guaranteed money.

I say 6 and 65. 16 signing bonus.

I'm assuming this is "Price Is Right" style of proximation - the closest without going over.

5 years, 44 mil and 14 mil of that as bonus.  Or, almost 9 mil per year.  I mean, we are talking about DEM CHEEPE AZZD RONEY!S!!!!!!!!!

What ever he gets we need to get it done ASAP.  He is due about 3 mill in roster bonus that will go against the cap soon and we also need to know where we are in $ so we can get other deals done.

That seems close to what I would have guessed.  Let me look at this a bit and come back with something.

There was an article awhile back about bens contract and they said that Ben was taking Romo's deal as the frame for the contract that he wants. So i would say its going to be really close to this. If they get it done it will def. be more cap friendly for this season, which would be great... giving us a bit more to play with this offseason...

I say after we do our cuts... we will be prolly targeting 2 key FA... who is anyones guess... i posted before who i thought.

Excellent overview here.  

I'd go with this guy's numbers for Ben, but I think they're gonna push for six years.  So I took his numbers *6/5, and then applied the standard terms and conditions (10% discount off NFL average rates, per Omar "Coupon" Khan), and came up with this:

6 years, $59.4M total, $20.52M bonus, $11.88M average per.

Hard to believe the Stillers would shell out a $20M bonus, but then again...
