From what I had been reading, Thurman was "further away" than Pollack. Thurman's deal was over the fifth year that the Bengals wanted to extend out on his contract, and apparently they (The Bengals) got it; though with an escalator clause in that 5th year. Bengals seem to be pretty tough when it comes to contract negotiations.
Come on Pollack!
With learning a new position and all, he REALLY needs to be in camp ASAP!
