New contract for Big Ben?

So I thought my first news story would be a slightly controversial one.  I recently heard that the Steelers have began preliminary talks with Big Ben about a contract extension.  Initially I thought that they were doing a great job of staying ahead of the curve with him, but then I read this story.    

I'm not sure how much 2006 hurt Ben's 'resale' value but it will be interesting to see where his contract ranks among current QB contracts.  Does Big Ben deserve to be paid as a top 10, top 5, or top 3 QB.  He'll almost certainly break the Steelers record for signing bonus, but I'm just not completely sold that he's a 10 million a year guy.  Your thoughts?
