No. 4 – AJ McCarron
You can feel however you want to feel about it, but I have always been an AJ McCarron fan. As a result, I would love to see him get a chance to start for a team in the NFL.
Since coming into the league in 2014, McCarron hasn’t seen much time on the field in Cincinnati since he has been sitting on the bench behind Andy Dalton. In fact, McCarron has only played in 11 games and the majority of those games were not starts. That being said, in his limited time he has managed to put up some solid numbers. As a Bengal he is 86/133 which equates a almost 65 percent. He has also passed for 920 yards, six touchdowns and only two interceptions.
Yes, this is quite the small sample size, but again it all comes down to what the other team thinks about you. Earlier this season a deal fell through at the last minute that would have sent McCarron over to the Browns. Cleveland is clearly more desperate at the QB spot than Buffalo, but the fact that they were interested in McCarron says something.
I would also argue that McCarron has looked better on tape than Lynch has. Then again, that could also be a product of the two teams that they currently play for. It’s also worth noting that Mccarron should be available for trade, especially given how he was almost moved last season.
