AJ McCarron signs with Bills

The Buffalo Bills signed quarterback A.J. McCarron, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, to a 2-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 Tyrod Taylor to the Browns last week and were in need of a QB.

He has completed 64.7 percent of his passes in 11 career games, while he has six career touchdown passes to two interceptions.

Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans
Over the past three seasons, Butler started 47 of 48 regular-season games for New England and seven of eight postseason games. The cornerback was well-respected in the Patriots' locker room and played last season under a $3.9 million tender offer.


McCarron, 27, has spent all four seasons of his National Football League career with the Cincinnati Bengals before becoming an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday. There is only one quarterback in this class I consider pro-ready and I think that is the Bills' top target in the draft: Josh Rosen. By moving Taylor to Cleveland, Buffalo essentially put that out of question.

The exact terms of the deal aren't yet known, but it'll provide a fresh start for one of the league's more intriguing backup quarterbacks. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that McCarron will earn at least $10 million over two years with $6.5 million available in incentives. It's looking less and less likely that he will find what he was looking for but there is still a team without a veteran quarterback going into 2018. Over the last two seasons, the former Alabama quarterback has thrown only 14 passes in regular season games.

If the Patriots didn't make an offer to McCarron, then it wouldn't be a surprise to see them draft a potential backup for Tom Brady in April.

It's a win-win scenario.
