CINCINNATI, OH (WBRC) -- AJ McCarron, the former Crimson Tide QB who now backs up Andy Dalton in Cincinnati, almost found a new home on Tuesday. And it wouldn't have been a long trip either.
McCarron was reportedly traded to the Cleveland Browns just before the NFL trade deadline late Tuesday afternoon. But the trade wasn't finalized in time. A Bengals representative told WBRC's sister station, FOX19 NOW, on Tuesday night that the league office received the Bengals' paperwork before the trade deadline, and the league office confirmed they did not hear from the Browns until after the trade deadline.
Check out the video above to hear McCarron's thoughts on the trade that wasn't.
