A.J. McCarron Receptive To Possible Trade From Bengals

There will be a number of teams looking for a new quarterback to lead their franchise heading into 2017. Bengals backup quarterback A.J. McCarron could be one of those guys that find himself on a new team next year. McCarron recently welcomed the idea of a trade with a chance to start.

I definitely wouldn’t be distraught at all,” McCarron said, per Cincinnati.com. “Like I told [Bengals coach] Marvin [Lewis] and all my coaches in my exit meetings, I appreciate everybody in this organization. I really do. From the bottom of my heart. They gave me a chance when a lot of people wouldn’t. They all treated me unbelievably and I really do care for every one of ’em and respect all [of them].”

McCarron, a 2014 5th round pick, has been a pretty reliable backup during his 3 year career. He even started a playoff game last year that he should have won if it wasn’t for a Jeremy Hill fumble. He threw 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in 3 career regular season starts. For teams that are unable to trade for Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo, McCarron could be a nice plan B.  With one year left on his contract, it may be wise for Cincy to explore trade possibilities.
