Bills sign A.J. McCarron to two-year deal


Our friend at picked up a report that claimed The Bills have completed the signing of A.J. McCarron on a two-year deal.

According to reports from Pro Football Rumours, The Bills have signed A.J. McCarron that will see the former Bengals signal caller at his side on a two-year deal.

McCarron, for now, will start as the Bills’ new starting quarterback following the trade of former Bills Tyrod Taylor to the Browns. He only started three career games playing behind Andy Dalton in Cincinnati, but the 27-year-old quarterback certainly looked capable during his time on the field.

Across 11 career matches, he has completed 64.7-percent of his passes for 920 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions. During McCarron’s brief starting season in 2015, he also registered 31 rushing yards on 14 carries. That season, he started the Bengals’ playoff loss to the Steelers, throwing for 212 yards, one touchdown, and one pick.

Despite his starting inexperience, the quarterback was still one of the top-ranked players available in free agency. The Broncos and Cardinals had previously been connected to the former fifth-rounder, but both of those teams ultimately added other players at that position. He was ranked 12th in Football Weeks‘ list of the top-50 free agents, and he was listed fourth in our positional rankings. Earlier today, Zach Links ranked him as the sixth-best remaining free agent.

The Bills presumably signed McCarron as their starting quarterback next season. Other than the free agent addition, Buffalo is rostering Nathan Peterman.
