Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 15 vs MIN (3 / 6 / 19 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
McCarron came into the game in garbage time after an interception set the Bengals up just outside the red zone. He completed a 4th-and-7 slant over the middle to Alex Erickson to keep the drive alive and eventually set up a touchdown. The next drive, McCarron badly overthrew Josh Malone on 4th-and-5 to turn it over on downs.
2017 Week 14 vs CHI (4 / 8 / 47 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
With the game out of hand late, Andy Dalton and A.J. Green were pulled and McCarron was brought in for a short audition. He didn't look any better than Dalton. He completed a pair of short passes to Giovani Bernard that went for gains of 27 and 19 yards against prevent defense. Aside from a 4-yard completion to Brandon LaFell, McCarron couldn't get anything going except dump offs to the running backs. He took a sack and turned it over on downs.

Our 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.
link to story 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. Our 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.
