AJ McCarron Wins Grievance Against Bengals, Now an Unrestricted Free Agent

  • AJ Mc Carron will be an unrestricted free agent

But with an emphasis placed on winning in 2018, thanks to that pesky 1-31 record, a rookie might not be the most attractive immediate solution to Cleveland's near-30-year quarterback drought. But I should have known it wouldn't last long.

He will be an unrestricted free agent on March 14 after an arbiter ruled Thursday in favor of the backup quarterback in his grievance against the Bengals. So what was that grievance about? McCarron represents the end of the road when it comes to McCarron's effort to become an unrestricted free agent.

McCarron's sample size is a bit small considering all that happened since he was taken with the 164th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Remember, at the trade deadline last season, the Bengals and Browns had agreed on a deal that would have sent McCarron to Cleveland. Chicago used the second pick of the 2017 NFL Draft on North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. With knowledge that teams outside of Cincinnati were not just interested in his services but in potentially starting him, McCarron is keen to get out of town and start a new chapter of his career, but where? And while McCarron may not be a franchise-caliber player, or even an experienced starter, he's someone who not only knows Jackson's system, but at 27-years-old is young enough for his upside to shine through with more experience. The Broncos represent a strong landing spot, but lack the salary cap room of the Browns and New York Jets. So why did McCarron have to go through a grievance process with the Bengals in order to hit free agency?

His career-turning opportunity came in December 2015, when Dalton broke the thumb on his passing hand.

It puts another target on the market for one of the many quarterback-needy teams across the league, many of whom are now slotted to pick in the top 10. I just love playing football.

"First and foremost, I'm extremely thankful to the Brown family for believing in me", McCarron told the Bengals' official website about his time in Cincinnati. Keenum is considered a candidate for a deal similar to the one Brock Osweiler signed with Houston 23 months ago (four-year, $72 million, $37 million guaranteed).
