NFL Rumors: Bengals To Release Andy Dalton After Nine Years As Starting QB


April 30, 2020

Andy Dalton’s days as the leader of the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense appear to be over.

The Bengals will release the veteran quarterback, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday, citing a source.

Dalton has been the Bengals’ starting QB for the last nine years, but Joe Burrow’s arrival as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft effectively ended his tenure in Cincinnati.

The Bengals reportedly had been trying to trade Dalton for months, but they failed to net a suitable offer on the market. Now they reportedly will part ways with the three-time Pro Bowler.

A month ago, oddsmakers pegged the Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Chargers as betting favorites to have his services on Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season.
