AJ McCarron won his grievance so he can become an unrestricted free agent. With all the talk of a few huge market QBs, AJ was left behind. This week he might find a new home. The Patriots want to give him an offer. It isn’t clear what the offer is yet but no one else has knocked on his door yet.
The Patriots are making sure they have someone to step in when Tom Brady is done. McCarron will still play a backup role till that happens. They realize how bad it was to let go of Jacoby Brissett and Jimmy Garoppolo last year. This was not what AJ wanted but he will start sooner for the Patriots before he will start for the Bengals.
