Andy Dalton is ready to be paid like an elite quarterback.

The Cincinnati Bengals signal caller spoke at the first day of voluntary workouts at Paul Brown Stadium. 

"For a lot of these quarterbacks, if you're the quarterback of the team, you're the face of the franchise. So these teams obviously believe in their guy and they're going to pay him that way."

Dalton is entering the final year of his rookie contract, which pays a total of $5.2 million. 

The Bengals have qualified for the playoffs in each of Dalton's first three years as the starter, bit have failed to win a post season game.

Joe Flacco, who made led the Baltimore Ravens to a Super Bowl victory in the last year of his rookie deal was rewarded with a contract that pays him an average of $20.1 million per season.

Dalton says he hopes to avoid free agency next spring by working something out with Cincy before his contract expires in March of 2015.

"...I'm confident with that. I hope to spend a lot of my career here."
