  Bills | Bills starting QB gig to be determined    Wed Apr 4, 11:55 PM

Buffalo Bills QBs AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman will take part in an 'open competition' for the role of starting quarterback, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Footballguys view: It's hard to imagine Peterman winning this battle, but we have little idea what AJ McCarron can really do. And, of course, there is the issue of whether the Bills draft a quarterback.

  Bills | AJ McCarron goes to Buffalo    Wed Mar 14, 07:25 PM

The Buffalo Bills and free-agent QB AJ McCarron agreed to terms on a two-year deal Wednesday, March 14. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: McCarron is a bit of an unknown as a starter, and he was known as a weak-armed game manager in college at Alabama. He may get a chance to start with the Bills since they traded Tyrod Taylor (Browns) away. However, we think the Bills will still be aggressive in seeking a quarterback with a premium pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Broncos | AJ McCarron a target for Broncos?    Mon Mar 12, 03:43 PM

Free-agent QB AJ McCarron is a potential target for the Denver Broncos during free agency, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCarron played for the Bengals when Broncos head coach Vance Joseph was Cincinnati's defensive backs coach.

Footballguys view: McCarron has been on the Broncos radar before. He shouldn't be seen as any sort of long-term answer, and the Broncos should still take a QB at no5 overall in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.

  Browns | HC still wants to bring in AJ McCarron    Tue Mar 6, 01:57 AM

The Cleveland Browns are 'still exceedingly interested' in signing Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron. Head coach Hue Jackson, who was McCarron's former offensive coordinator in Cincinnati, prefers bringing him in 'and then backstopping him' with a rookie quarterback in the draft.

Footballguys view: As we've been hearing a lot, which could make that first pick -- and even the fourth, which Cleveland also has -- fascinating. It could free them up to grab Saquon Barkley and then come back around either for a quarterback or a player like a Bradley Chubb or Minkah Fitzpatrick.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron a game manager?    Sun Feb 18, 10:12 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron's 'ceiling is that of a solid game manager,' according to a scout.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Nobody should be going nuts over the potential of McCarron, but in this QB-desperate league he's going to get paid a handsome salary to get a chance to be a starter.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron in line for big contract?    Sun Feb 18, 09:41 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron will likely command a contract for 'at least' as much as the three-year, $45 million contract Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon signed last year, according to Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com.

  Vikings | Minnesota may look at AJ McCarron    Sun Feb 18, 12:36 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron is expected to receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings if the Vikings are not able to re-sign impending free-agent QB Case Keenum.

Footballguys view: McCarron's entry into the free agent market could change the plans for multiple teams out there. A fifth-round pick out of Alabama in 2014, McCarron is known as a game-manager type of quarterback. He can work well within a system but struggles to improvise when a play breaks down. In this QB desperate league however, McCarron is set to get an offer similar to what Mike Glennon (3-year, $45 million, $18.5 million guaranteed) got from the Bears in 2017.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron will be a UFA    Thu Feb 15, 05:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron has won his grievance and will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to a source.

Footballguys view: So far Cleveland is the hot destination rumor. It would certainly change a lot of things in the top portion of the draft if the Browns got their quarterback before round one kicks off. Even if McCarron is unproven, we hear at least Hue Jackson is a big fan.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron changing teams?    Sun Feb 11, 10:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron could end up with another team in 2018, even if he loses his grievance and remains a restricted free agent, according to Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com. Even with a tender placed on him, Terrell believes a quarterback-needy team will pursue McCarron.

Footballguys view: Teams in need of a quarterback are going to have different options. For some team looking for a cheaper option than Kirk Cousins, we could see McCarron instead. The Broncos were rumored to be interested in him last year, and they may be in play for McCarron once again regardless of his free agency status.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron to have arbitration case    Sun Dec 10, 10:10 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is scheduled to have an arbitration case in February to determine if he will be a restricted free agent or an unrestricted free agent this offseason, according to sources.

Footballguys view: If he's an unrestricted free agent, a Mike Glennon-esque contract with short term starter money is likely, maybe even in Cleveland as a bridge to their likely first-round pick with Hue Jackson's affinity for McCarron and the likelihood that Jackson remains the head coach.

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron has filed a grievance against the Bengals, asking an arbitrator to determine whether he is an unrestricted or restricted free agent after this season, according to a source. If he is ruled a restricted free agent, the Bengals are expected to place a first-round tender on McCarron.

  Broncos | AJ McCarron not a Broncos target    Wed Aug 9, 10:11 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is not a trade target of the Denver Broncos, according to sources.

Footballguys view: That the Broncos have to answer these questions shows that their quarterback situation isn't settled. The answer is unlikely to come from outside of the roster, but the long-term answer might not be on the roster unless it is Mr. Irrelevant Chad Kelly, who won't be able to contribute until next year.

  Browns | Cleveland turning focus to AJ McCarron?    Fri Apr 28, 02:54 PM

The Cleveland Browns have 'touched base' with the Cincinnati Bengals in regards to trading for QB AJ McCarron, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, who acknowledged talks do not 'sound like they've gotten too far'.

Footballguys view: Sounds like maybe the Browns aren't super confident in Brock Osweiler after all. They'll keep kicking tires, but we have no idea how good McCarron will be so they can't be interested in giving up much for him.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron unlikely to be dealt    Tue Apr 25, 09:10 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is unlikely to be traded because it would likely take a first-round pick to acquire him.

Footballguys view: McCarron wants to be traded so he can get a chance to be a starter. He'll be a restricted free agent in 2018, and that may be when he gets a chance elsewhere.

  Browns | Cleveland looking at AJ McCarron    Fri Apr 7, 03:48 AM

The Cleveland Browns remain interested in Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron, who previously worked with Browns coach Hue Jackson in Cincinnati. McCarron has asked to be traded.

Footballguys view: The Bengals don't seem to be intent on getting rid of McCarron. He may just have to wait until he hits the open market as an unrestricted free agent in 2018. The Browns want to find a new starting quarterback, and they'll have several options with potential trades (McCarron, Jimmy Garoppolo) or the 2017 NFL draft.

The New York Jets would 'consider' a trade of DE Sheldon Richardson to the Cincinnati Bengals for QB AJ McCarron, according to ESPN.com's Rich Cimini.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have not been tempted to trade away McCarron. Perhaps dangling Richardson in a deal would get them to bite.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron available for a price    Thu Mar 2, 09:34 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron could be traded for the right offer, and the Bengals are likely seeking at least a second-round pick for McCarron, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: After playing coy - and thereby setting the bait - the Bengals now feed the line into the water and see who is biting. There's not much in free agency, and Jimmy Garoppolo will be more expensive so we can see there being interest. However, he didn't show a ton in seven games during the 2016 season and is as unproven as the rookies coming in. We don't think the Bengals are going to land a big fish this offseason.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron not being shopped    Wed Mar 1, 11:55 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is not someone the team is looking to trade, according to team executive Duke Tobin. The team is unwilling to trade him within the division.

Footballguys view: Another team not trading a backup quarterback. McCarron may want to be traded away, but he's going to have to wait until 2018 when he becomes a restricted free agent.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron the best QB trade target?    Sat Feb 18, 10:30 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is a better trade target than New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo, according to one NFL executive. 'If I had to choose one, I would go after McCarron,' the executive said. 'Ideally, you get him for a late second- or early third-round pick.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick in 2014, McCarron has been patiently waiting and developing behind starter Andy Dalton. In seven appearances (all in 2015), McCarron has six touchdowns and only two interceptions. He worked in a pro style offense during his college career at Alabama, and he's known as a cocky Alpha male who can be a fiery leader. McCarron does struggle with pressure, but when settled down he's not afraid to make tough throws.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron will be RFA    Thu Feb 9, 11:24 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron will be a restricted free agent in 2018 because he didn't accrue enough active games to count toward free agency.

Footballguys view: This is good for the Bengals, as they can flip him for picks if they are so moved. If he was an unrestricted free agent, they wouldn't get as much for him. McCarron has been mentioned in terms of teams looking for a quarterback, but we have no track record to know how good he really is.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron trade inevitable?    Sun Jan 8, 09:40 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is expected to be traded during the offseason, according to beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. Dehner said it's a matter of when and who will give up the most in the trade.

Footballguys view: McCarron thinks he'll be traded, but it's not that simple. According to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, McCarron didn't have any suitors last offseason and he doesn't think that changes this year. McCarron is seen as a starter-in-waiting, but he's only going to backup Andy Dalton in Cincinnati. If the Bengals don't trade him, McCarron will have to wait to hit free agency.

  Bengals | No suitors for AJ McCarron?    Wed Jan 4, 11:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron wasn't the target of trade offers last year, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, and Lewis said he doesn't expect the situation to change this offseason. 'His market was better a year ago and no one inquired,' Lewis said.

Footballguys view: That's a truth for many backup quarterbacks out there. McCarron is a name some like to throw around as a potential starter, but if that was the case then some team would make a move. It's not a QB-driven league, it's a QB-desperate league and teams will look anywhere to find that starting passer. McCarron felt he would be traded this offseason, but that may not be the case. He's likely to have to wait it out and hit the open market when his rookie contract is up.

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is preparing and expecting to be traded this offseason. McCarron has one year left on his four-year contract from his rookie season and is due $735,413 next season.

Footballguys view: McCarron is one of the most interesting backup quarterbacks out there, and it will be interesting to see if some team comes after him. There's no word on what the Bengals would want in return for the young quarterback.

  Bengals | Cincy planning to use AJ McCarron    Tue Jan 5, 12:09 PM

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Monday, Jan. 4, that the Bengals would prepare during the week as if QB AJ McCarron would start the wild card game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Jan. 9, with QB Andy Dalton's (thumb) status up in the air. McCarron said he'll be more confident this weekend if he's forced to face the Steelers for the second time.

Footballguys view: Confidence isn't McCarron's problem, but staying cool under pressure is. McCarron will take chances with the football, and that can pay off for the Bengals since they have elite weapons like WR A.J. Green and TE Tyler Eifert. However, in a game that has 'shootout' written all over it, we'll take Ben Roethlisberger over what McCarron can bring to the table.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are taking care of Andy Dalton right now. McCarron will face pressure like he's never seen playing against a Wade Phillips defense.

  Bengals | A.J. McCarron starting in Week 15    Mon Dec 14, 01:29 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB A.J. McCarron will receive the start in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He'll be trying to become the first Alabama quarterback to win an NFL start since 1987, when Jeff Rutledge beat the Philadelphia Eagles.

Footballguys view: Alabama hasn't been a quarterback factory for the NFL. McCarron has a gunslinger mentality, and there's not a throw that he thinks he can't make. This confidence is a good and bad thing. McCarron will fire passes that he should have no business throwing, but he's giving his teammates a chance to make a play. It should be a wild ride with a daring and inexperienced quarterback like McCarron under center.
