AJ McCarron Hitting Free Agency Is A Game Changer

As the Denver Broncos begin this season's quest to find their quarterback of the future, a familiar face finds himself added to the mix of players set to hit the jackpot in free agency.

AJ McCarron is finally going to get his chance to make a mark on the NFL.

McCarron resembles more of a Mike Glennon than he does a Kirk Cousins, but nonetheless, he'll get paid this offseason, especially when the Browns almost gave up a second-round pick for him past year. He petitioned that his shortened rookie season count toward free agency, arguing the Bengals shouldn't have placed him on the non-football injury list.

The Vikings had the benefit of having three competent quarterbacks on their roster for the 2017 National Football League season in Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, and Teddy Bridgewater. At the time, he did not know whether or not he would be allowed to become an unrestricted free agent, so the failure of the trade potentially represented another full season of purgatory serving as Andy Dalton's backup with nor opportunity to compete for the starting job.

That could actually benefit the Browns in the long run, however, as signing McCarron would in no way preclude Dorsey from using one of the team's first-round draft picks on a quarterback. While some of those teams are likely to chase Kirk Cousins this offseason, the ones that lose out could view McCarron has a solid consolation prize. 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? I don't view him as an ideal solution for some team, but this is a player the Cleveland Browns were willing to give up a second round pick for. That includes three starts, but he has not started and played a full game since the AFC Wild Card game on January 9, 2016. He also made a playoff start against the Pittsburgh Steelers, as the Bengals lost 18-16.


The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback won his grievance against the Bengals Thursday afternoon.

McCarron never started again, played in just four games, threw just 14 passes over two seasons.

McCarron played two snaps in the 2016 season.

There is a good chance that McCarron wouldn't have anxious about the one-year difference without the trade interest from the Cleveland Browns in 2017.
