A.J. McCarron’s stay in Oakland didn’t last very long.
This time last season, McCarron left Buffalo for Oakland after agreeing to a two-year deal, $10 million deal but the former Crimson Tide signal caller has not made it to the second year of that deal after the Raiders decided to release the veteran quarterback.
News of McCarron’s release was first reported by ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. If McCarron clears league waivers, he will become an unrestricted free agent this spring.
In his five NFL seasons, McCarron has thrown for 928 yards, six touchdowns and only two interceptions in limited opportunities. The Bengals selected McCarron in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. During his college career at Alabama, McCarron passed for 9,019 yards, 77 touchdowns to only 15 interceptions.
