Raiders Rumors: QB AJ McCarron Released After 1 Season with Oakland

Another viable backup quarterback landed on the NFL free-agency market Thursday afternoon, as the Oakland Raiders released AJ McCarron, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

McCarron appeared in only two games during his lone season in Oakland last year, completing one pass for eight yards. The Raiders acquired McCarron in a trade with the Buffalo Bills, who dealt him after the preseason.

Prior to his stint as a Raider, McCarron spent three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he primarily backed up Andy Dalton.
