Draft Scout A.J. McCarron News
02/15/18 - QB AJ McCarron won his grievance against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to multiple reports, which makes him an unrestricted free agent when the 2018 league year begins March 14. The grievance centered around whether the Bengals had a proper medical basis for putting McCarron on the non-football injury list to start the 2014 season. Bengals officials believed McCarron, a fifth-round draft choice out of Alabama in 2014, suffered a right shoulder injury while away from the team, and they placed him on the non-football injury list on July 21, 2014, keeping him out of training camp. On Aug. 30, he was placed on reserve/non-football injury, which meant he would miss at least the first six games of the season. McCarron argued that was an improper designation because he had passed his post-draft physical and had kept the Bengals informed of his medical situation. The ruling by the arbitrator makes 2014 count as an accrued season, thus giving McCarron the four years necessary to qualify for unrestricted free agency.

"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."
