Browns almost landed AJ McCarron from Bengals

  • Report: Cleveland Browns botched chance to trade for former Alabama QB AJ McCarron

On the heels of not landing Jimmy Garoppolo, the Cleveland Browns tried to right their many wrongs at the quarterback position by attempting to swing a trade for Bengals backup AJ McCarron.

After the 4 p.m. deadline passed, ESPN reported Tuesday that the Bengals had a deal with Cleveland for McCarron in exchange for two undisclosed picks in next year's draft. Filing the proper paperwork should be the easiest part of a trade, especially in the final minutes before the trade deadline. The Bengals notified the National Football League of the trade prior of the deadline.

In 2011 when Jackson was the head coach in Oakland, he and Brown hammered out a deal 48 hours after the Raiders lost starting quarterback Jason Campbell to injury.

McCarron has been the subject of trade rumors since the 2016 offseason after he filled in for an injured Andy Dalton and nearly led the Bengals to their first playoff win under Marvin Lewis. Meet Dre Kirkpatrick and Giovani Bernard.

The Cleveland Browns will be the Cleveland Browns.

What were the picks? It was apparently enough for Brown to end a 50-year stance.

The Bengals said they would listen to offers for McCarron for the right price, and it seemed nearly certain that McCarron would be elsewhere by the time the 2017 season came around. McCarron is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason, so perhaps the Browns will make another effort to land his services.
