2017

2016

After Andy Dalton suffered a fractured thumb in Week 14, McCarron was thrust into the starting position for the remainder of the season. In his last five games, including the wild-card loss to the Steelers, McCarron posted a 7:3 TD:INT ratio while throwing for over 1,000 yards. All reports say Dalton is completely cleared of his thumb injury and will be ready for the beginning of the season, meaning McCarron isn't likely to see much action barring any future injuries. The second-year man undeniably gained invaluable experience and likely gave the Bengals a considerable degree of confidence in the health of the backup quarterback position.

2015

McCarron is expected to be Andy Dalton's backup in 2015. The 2014 fifth-round draft pick didn't take a snap in 2014 as he had a year to learn on the bench.

2014

McCarron joins the Bengals after a hugely successful four-year college career at Alabama. With Andy Dalton undoubtedly Cincinnati's starting quarterback this season, McCarron will hope to learn from veteran second-stringer Jason Campbell as he transitions to the NFL.
