Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals has had an interesting career.

As a second-round pick out of TCU in 2011, he became a starter from day one. He’s had success, too. His career record as a starter is 21 games over .500 and he led Cincinnati to five straight playoff appearances in his first five years in the league.

But, he’s never won a playoff game. That has led to Dalton earning the unenviable label of “not being able to win the big one.”

It’s time to alter that label, maybe to something like “good human being.”

Dalton and his wife, Jordan, hosted 40 families in his foundation’s “King For a Day” community outreach program on Sunday. It’s the sixth year in a row the Daltons have held the event.

From Bengals.com:

“Spending a summer day at Kings Island is a tradition for many Cincinnati families, and we’re thrilled to give that experience to these kids,” said Andy Dalton. “Jordan and I love spending time with these kids and getting to know their families. To provide such a fun day for them is always a treat for us.”

The Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation’s goal is provide opportunities, support and resources to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in the Greater Cincinnati area.
