AJ McCarron signs two-year deal with Bills
The Buffalo Bills have themselves a quarterback.
A.J. McCarron has signed a two-year deal with the Bills, as first reported by NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.
McCarron became a free agent after winning a grievance with the Bengals, for whom he served as a backup quarterback most of his career.
The former Alabama quarterback showed promise during some starts in 2015 when he went 79 of 119 (66.4 percent) for 854 yards and six touchdown passes. He was nearly dealt to the Cleveland Browns prior to the trade deadline last year before the deal fell through.
Buffalo traded Tyrod Taylor to the Browns last week and were in need of a QB. Now they have one to work with, not to mention what they could end up getting in next month’s draft, where they hold the Nos. 12 and 22 overall picks.
Somebody break the news to Hue Jackson gently.
