Dennis Pitta has plenty to be excited about at this time.
He signed a five-year, $32 million contract that's both cap friendly for 2014 and well compensates for what he brings to the franchise on the field.
And for further proof of that, the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that Pitta received an $11 million signing bonus as a part of his deal, with $16 million guaranteed.
He also tweeted out the base salaries and cap figures for Pitta, in order from 2014-2018.
