Barkley to Bengals

Post by cruiser » Sun Mar 18, 2018 9:55 pm

Matt Barkley signs a two year deal to be Andy Dalton's back up. Let's see where this take
him. This will be his fourth NFL team. Well, if nothing else,this deal qualifies him for a
guaranteed NFL pension since he will have five years or so on the books. I think he is
still only 27 years old. - If nothing else he has managed to stick around in the NFL this
long - It appears some teams still think he has some value in what they are looking for...

On a side note, after reading the article(s) some more, I guess NFL back up QB's make
some decent money, Barkley gets a $500, 000 dollar signing bonus and an estimated
$1.675 million yearly contract, though all may not be guaranteed, etc; all in all
not bad for a journeyman QB. no?

He lost a ton of money staying at USC that extra season when he would have been
a most likely top ten pick.

Careful - they could fire him 364 days into the contract for a lack of candor
