It feels like there has been a considerable amount of quarterback controversy in the NFL in several different organizations. Is that the case for Atlanta now? It was announced earlier today that AJ McCarron signed with the Atlanta Falcons.
McCarron was a 2014 fifth-round choice in Cincinnati who spent four years with the Bengals and one with the Raiders before joining the Texans. He backed up Deshaun Watson in Houston and will do the same for Matt Ryan in Atlanta.
While there has been a considerable amount of backlash from fans regarding Ryan’s performance, his job is safe for now and the signing of McCarron shouldn’t impact his status with the organization.
