AJ McCarron (age 26—Bengals)
McCarron was Cincinnati’s 5th round draft pick out of Alabama in 2014. He earned some big game experience during the Bengals playoff run in 2015 while Andy Dalton was out with injury, and actually started in their wild-card loss to Pittsburgh. McCarron won’t put up spectacular statistics, but is a smart QB that can make most of the necessary throws. He is under contract through 2018, at a season salary of around $700,000 per year. Rumors out of Cincinnati are that they are looking to move him.
Final Verdict: Perhaps worth an inquiring phone call from Saints general manager Micky Loomis.
