Could the Patriots actually be interested in AJ McCarron?
WEEI’s Kirk Minihane is reporting the Patriots have made an offer to now-former Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron.

A McCarron to the Patriots rumor was also circulated, though with even less details, last night by Benjamin Allbright.
McCarron is one of the best remaining quarterbacks on the free agent market. He said he was looking for an opportunity to start, which he will not receive in the near future with the Patriots, but, the starting jobs are mostly filled at this point. Being Tom Brady’s backup isn’t a bad job, but it’s just not what McCarron has said he wanted, which is an opportunity to compete for a starting role.
