The future of Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron remains in question, but we now know when McCarron’s free agency case will be decided by arbitration.
McCarron says his case will be decided by an NFL arbitrator on Thursday, February 15, 2018.

An RFA is any veteran player with three accrued seasons, but with less than four, at the conclusion of the player’s rookie contract. Unrestricted free agents (drafted players—typically—who stay with the team that drafted them for four years) enter free agency with four years of NFL experience.
