Bengals backup signal-caller AJ McCarron said his goodbyes Monday “just in case” 2016 is his final season in Cincinnati.
Per The Cincinnati Enquirer, McCarron said he “definitely wouldn’t be distraught at all” to be traded in the coming months.
“Like I told Marvin (Lewis) and all my coaches in my exit meetings, I appreciate everybody in this organization,” McCarron continued. “I really do. From the bottom of my heart. They gave me a chance when a lot of people wouldn’t.
“They all treated me unbelievably and I really do care for every one of ’em and respect all ’em. This place will always have a special place in my heart just for what they’ve done for me. I really appreciated it due to wholesale jerseys.”
McCarron made it clear that he’s ready to move on to the next chapter of his life as a starting quarterback, stating “I want a chance to play.”
A trade is already baked into the team’s “offseason itinerary,” according to The Enquirer’s Paul Dehner, who added that it’s simply a “matter of when, where and who will provide the most value.”
The Bengals were reluctant to deal McCarron last offseason, Lewis explained at the time, “because he’s exactly what we look for to be a replacement quarterback if we needed it.”

That mindset made sense when McCarron still had two years remaining on a team-friendly rookie contract. Now that the 2014 fifth-round draft pick is entering a contract season, the Bengals seem intent on exploring the market to gauge his value.
Before the former Alabama star ever took an NFL snap, Cincinnati’s coaching staff arrived at the belief that he was “fully capable of becoming a starting-quality player.”
The former Texans kicker signed a two-year deal with the Bengals on Thursday, the last of three teams he played with cheap jerseys for in 2016.
Bullock started the season with the Giants to fill in for the suspended Josh Brown and then joined the Steelers to kick for the injured Chris Boswell. When the Bengals cut embattled kicker Mike Nugent, they signed Bullock to close out the season.
Jones later was charged with felony harassment for allegedly spitting on a nurse at the justice center following his arrest, according to court documents.
“We are aware of and are working to gather full information, but policy is that it’s inappropriate for the club to comment on unresolved legal matters,” the Bengals said in a statement.

According to information posted on the Hamilton County Sheriff Office’s website, Jones was arrested just before 1 a.m. ET. The felony charge is for harassment with a bodily substance, according to the county clerk’s office. The three charges he was arrested for — obstructing official business, disorderly conduct and assault — are all misdemeanors.
A judge set bond at $37,500. As of Tuesday afternoon, Jones had not been released from custody.
The 33-year-old has had several brushes with the law. Jones was last arrested back in 2013 in Cincinnati on assault charges. He was later found not guilty.
Jones was suspended for the 2007 season due to the buildup of various legal issues and was also held out for a few games in 2008 for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
Jones logged 54 tackles, seven passes defensed and an interception this season. Last year at age 32, he made his first career Pro Bowl. Jones was signed to a three-year, $22 million deal back in March of 2016, with $6 million in total guarantees.
