Summary

Entering his fifth NFL season, Andy Dalton has been very durable, having never missed a start. Durability, though, is his best trait. He's viewed by some as the "missing piece" in Cincinnati's championship puzzle. In 2013, it looked as though Dalton was turning a corner, having passed for over 4,200 yards. But he regressed back to 3,398 in 2014 with just 19 touchdowns. The 2014 yardage total tied his career-low, which occurred in his rookie year when he was expected to be more "game manager" than franchise quarterback. Not having A.J. Green for all of 2014 certainly had an impact, as did Offensive Coordinator Hue Jackson's run-first style, but Dalton's play has been erratic and mostly sub-par throughout his career. Nothing that took place this offseason points to a significant turnaround. (May 16)
