Former Alabama QB AJ McCarron signing deal with Houston Texans
UPDATE: McCarron has confirmed his signing with Houston.
Alabama QB AJ McCarron had a rough 2018 season. After signing with the Buffalo Bills last offseason, he thought he would get to be a starter for the first time in his career.
Instead, he spent much of the summer injured and then lost the starting job to rookie Josh Allen. After that, he was shipped off to the Oakland Raiders, where he was a backup for the 2018 season.
Now, he’s reportedly found a new NFL home. Per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, McCarron will sign with the Houston Texans to be Deshaun Watson’s backup:
An Alabama quarterback and a Clemson quarterback in the same room? It’s a safe bet they’ll have a friendly rivalry going this college football season.
This is McCarron’s fourth NFL team. Will he stick around for four years like he did in Cincinnati, or will he be looking for a new team again next offseason?
