McCarron will join Nathan Peterman as the only two quarterbacks on the team’s roster.
The move comes on the opening day of free agency. The team had traded Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns for the 65th pick overall in the upcoming NFL Draft. Many expect them to continue to move up in the draft to be able to select one of the top-rated QBs.
McCarron has three career regular season starts, and has played in eleven games since entering the league as a fifth round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in 2014. In those games he completed 64.7% of his passes for 920 yards, 6 touchdowns and two interceptions.
The 27-year old Alabama product also started one playoff game back in 2015, going 23-for-41 for 212 yards with one TD and one interception in an 18-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
