Draft Scout A.J. McCarron News
05/31/16 - QB AJ McCarron returned to Cincinnati this week for organized team activities following the birth of his son -- Raymond Anthony McCarron III. McCarron said wife, Katherine, and son were doing well back in Alabama following a relatively easy delivery. "She laughed him out," McCarron said, smiling. "I made her laugh and she laughed twice hard and he was out. Doctors said that was the easiest delivery he'd been a part of." Meanwhile, the Bengals QB who made three starts in place of injured Andy Dalton last season and passed for 854 yards and six TDs, shook off some rust on Tuesday. "He's not as sharp as where he needs to be," said offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. "But he knows that. He'll get there soon enough. We'll pound on him."
