Bills a speculated landing spot for QB AJ McCarron
After shipping quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns on Friday the Buffalo Bills could be in the market for quarterback AJ McCarron, according to speculation.
After Taylor was traded to Cleveland, one of the first speculated landing spots for Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron, ESPN’s Adam Schefter sent out a tweet indicated that the Bills could now be a spot for McCarron in 2018.
McCarron, 27, will become an unrestricted free agent on March 14 after winning a grievance claim against Cincinnati earlier in the offseason.
McCarron, buried behind Andy Dalton on the Bengals’ depth chart, has only appeared in 11 regular season games throughout his four-year NFL career, and he’s only started three of those contests. In those three, McCarron went 2-1 and has a career completion percent of 64.7.
If the Bills do have interest in McCarron, he could be viewed as a “bridge” quarterback to rookie that the team also could land prior to the 2018 season. But McCarron will likely hope for a location willing to pay top-dollar for him with the belief that he would be included in that team’s long-term plans.
