AJ McCarron Falls To Fifth Round; Bengals Draft Him With 164th Pick

AJ McCarronCINCINNATI — The Bengals added yet another quarterback to back up Andy Dalton, this one with a history of winning big games.

Cincinnati drafted Alabama’s AJ McCarron in the fifth round Saturday, after he fell to the 164th pick overall.

So it’ll be AJ-to-A.J. in Cincinnati, but mostly in practice. Dalton is the unchallenged starter heading into the final year of his contract, and he and the Bengals are talking about an extension. McCarron will be limited to throwing to A.J. Green a few times in practice. Jason Campbell is the No. 2 quarterback.
