AJ McCarron is heading toward employment freedom.
Cincinnati Bengals: Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys
McCarron has won his grievance against his current team cheap authentic NFL jerseys, the Cincinnati Bengals, and will become an unrestricted free agent with the new league year in March, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed. McCarron is also due lost salary with interest from the 2014 season, Rapoport added.
McCarron’s grievance centered on whether his first cheap authentic NFL jerseys season in the NFL, which included a long stint on the non-football injury list, counted as a year of service and thus granted him unrestricted free agent status at the conclusion of the 2017 season. With free agency now granted, the former fifth-round pick of the Bengals will be free to leave for a team of his choice for what is expected to be significant, starting quarterback money.
“First and foremost I’m extremely thankful to the Brown family for believing in me,” McCarron said, via a story on the team’s official site. “Coach (Marvin) Lewis and all the coaches that were there when they drafted me, I can’t thank them enough. A lot teams passed on me before I went in the fifth round authentic NFL jerseys. I’ve got a lot of precious memories from my four years Cincinnati Bengals jerseys there.”
The quarterback has long been linked to the Cleveland Browns, thanks to his success in limited cheap authentic NFL jerseys action while operating an offense called by then-offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, who is entering year three of his tenure as Cleveland’s head coach. With McCarron under center in place of injured starter Andy Dalton in 2015, the quarterback completed 99 of 156 passes for 1,044 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. As a starter, McCarron posted a 2-2 record, including a rain-soaked playoff game in which Cincinnati was on the verge of winning before a late-game meltdown put Pittsburgh in position for a game-winning field goal.
McCarron’s grievance centered on whether he should have spent his AJ McCarron authentic jersey rookie season (2014) on the non-football injury list. An independent arbitrator ruled in the 27-year-old’s favor, which will send the career backup to the open market on March 14 — the first day of the new league authentic jersey year.
“It’s just a blessing,” McCarron told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I was going to be blessed either way because you’re still in the league, you’re still being able to play the game for a living, but it’s just awesome just to be free now and to hopefully get that opportunity and be able to compete somewhere. That’s all I’ve ever wanted. I’m just super excited. Just really excited that I get that opportunity now and I just can’t wait to just showcase what I can do cheap authentic NFL jerseys and show a team that I can lead a team and win ballgames.”
McCarron hasn’t started a game since taking over for Andy Dalton for the final three games of the 2015. In those three starts he completed 65.7 percent of his passes with four TDs and zero interceptions, 6.9 yards per attempt and a 102.4 passer rating. McCarron then started the Bengals playoff game, throwing 41 times (completing 56.1 percent, 5.2 YPA, 1-1 TD-INT) and briefly taking a late lead before the Pittsburgh Steelers won the game on their final possession.
There remain questions about McCarron’s arm strength, and his struggles in Cincinnati once teams got tape on his cheap authentic NFL jerseys. In a league devoid of starting caliber quarterbacks, however, McCarron should find plenty of suitors on the open market. Cleveland is one logical landing spot after Hue Jackson — his former offensive coordinator — tried to acquire McCarron at the trade deadline.
Ross’ rookie season did not live up to the expectations. He was limited to just 17 snaps, no catches and one fumble for the year. The wideout is hoping for a fresh start to prove he’s worth the Bengals drafting him with the ninth-overall pick.

“I’m looking forward to August. I don’t really care what the combine is talking about,” Ross said. “… I’ve been through a lot last year. But it’s a new year. A lot of new things coming. The emphasis from last year looks to be change.”
Ross blames his poor performance last season on missing a portion of the offseason program due to NFL rules and his late start for training camp after rushing back from shoulder surgery in March cheap authentic NFL jerseys.
“That was the problem. My body didn’t respond the way I wanted it to,” Ross said. “Coming in late, I didn’t get to train. I was out of shape. That was pretty tough on my body. Rushing into it. Being out of shape. My body couldn’t take the physical aspects of the game we do every day. I thought I could. I think it kind of wore me out faster than I thought. I really didn’t catch up until the end of the year when I started to have better practices. It all started to click together. It was already kind of too late. It was best to rest, get my body and cheap NFL jerseys right.”
Now that he’s been in the NFL for a year, he knows what he needs to do to improve cheap authentic NFL jerseys.
“I’ve been drafted. I’ve been in the organization for a year. I know what to expect, what it takes to get on the field. I’ve watched the film of myself. I know what I’ve done wrong. So now it’s correction and growth.”
