AJ McCarron believed to be Browns' top option among free agent quarterbacks

Unfortunately, they are not going to be the only players at the table when it comes to McCarron. That's just the way the quarterback position works in the National Football League today. Pitcher Andrew Cashner and the Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a $16 million, two-year contract.

That, of course, raises the question of whether or not general manager John Dorsey even wants McCarron. With 1:50 left, he threw a 25-yard scoring pass to A.J. Green that put the Bengals on the brink of their first playoff win in 25 years.

Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says proposed rules changes to speed pace of play will be in place by the start of big league exhibition games on February 23. Cleveland was willing to send a second-round pick and a third-round pick for McCarron. Earlier this week, Vic Lombardi of Altitude Sports suggested they may be interested in McCarron as a free agent.

There will be no deadline this time, thank goodness for the Browns.

It's a good bet that Cleveland coach Hue Jackson would still like McCarron, because Jackson coached him when he was an assistant with the Bengals.

McCarron may be the compromise because his signing shouldn't steer the Browns from taking a quarterback with the No. 1 pick in this spring's draft. But after the league's ruling yesterday, McCarron will be able to sign with any team without the Bengals having a chance to match any offer. Unlikely, but you never know.

It puts another target on the market for one of the many quarterback-needy teams across the league, many of whom are now slotted to pick in the top 10. The Bengals wanted him to be restricted.

The 22-year-old, who is among the favourites in the parallel giant slalom snowboarding, could barely believe it herself. So it was a thrill to be back on the Olympic stage this time for what she has said will be the final go-round.

One year later, those who were skeptical about Glennon's contract appear to have been absolutely correct, but the Bears had to reach the cap floor somehow, and they had to have a contingency plan in case their investment in Mitch Trubisky in the draft didn't work out.

Of course, it's also possible the Bills have an interest in McCarron, who has spent the past four seasons as Andy Dalton's backup in Cincinnati.

AJ McCarron is finally going to get his chance to make a mark on the NFL.

Again, McCarron isn't a bad consolation prize to teams looking to fill holes at quarterback.

Another team could commit to him as a long-term starter. Very few will be satisfied, unless and until he performs at a level that justifies the decision.

"Stability", said Rapien, when explaining what McCarron could bring to Denver. Which means he's likely to end up coming out of this a very rich man.
