For comparison Terrell Suggs signed on July 30 last year (2 day hold-out) to a 5 year $10.09 mil deal that has some kind of $5 mil escalator clause in the last year that could make it a $15.09 mil deal. Hopefully the Texans and Dunta will work something out the week before camp, but that should be about the price range.
For further comparison, last year's 27th pick Larry Johnson signed a 7 year deal worth a potential total of $8.87 mil including a $3.3 mil signing bonus. The last two year's of the contract, with a total of about $2 mil of salary, are voidable if certain play time incentives are met.
