Bills sign QB McCarron to 2-year deal

Share

It appears he'll get that chance now: The Buffalo Bills announced on Wednesday evening that they had signed McCarron to a two-year contract.

This might very well be the best option on the table for McCarron, and when you think about it, despite it not being a starting gig, it's not that bad of an option.

Buffalo traded starting QB Tyrod Taylor to the Browns earlier this month. His career stats are as follows: 64.7 comp pct., 920 yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs, 93.6 rating with a 2-2 record, including a loss in the 2015 wild-card game.

McCarron, 27, was a free agent after winning a grievance filed against the Cincinnati Bengals past year to determine whether he had been incorrectly put on the non-football injury list as a rookie.

With two picks in each of the first three rounds of the draft, Buffalo also is expected to target one of the highly touted quarterback prospects. By moving Taylor to Cleveland, Buffalo essentially put that out of question.

All-in-all, this move doesn't change their plans at quarterback.

Bengals backup QB AJ McCarron now has a new home, according to reports.

McCarron became a free agent after winning a grievance with the Bengals, for whom he served as a backup quarterback most of his career.

Drafted in the 5th round of the 2014 NFL Draft, McCarron was a star at Alabama, starting at quarterback for three seasons and leading the Crimson Tide to two national titles in 2011 and 2012. Could we see McCarron in a Bills uniform in 2018?

It's a win-win scenario.
