Oakland Raiders QB AJ McCarron was released Thursday, March 14, according to a source.
Oakland Raiders QB AJ McCarron will receive a $3 million bonus if he is on the roster on Friday, March 15, and on Sunday, March 17, $1.1 million of his $1.8 million salary becomes guaranteed. General manager Mike Mayock indicated the team might be interested in McCarron returning. 'I think (head coach Jon Gruden) and I both believe that the backup quarterback is one snap away from playing. It's important to have someone like McCarron ready to go,' Mayock said.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was called the team's 'franchise quarterback' by new general manager Mike Mayock on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Mayock went on to say he is also happy with backup QB AJ McCarron. 'I think Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback,' Mayock said. 'I truly believe that. Now, do I also believe that it's a general manager and head coach's job to keep their job open to improve any position on a football team? Sure. But I think it's really difficult to try to improve over a franchise quarterback like the one we have in our building right now.'
Fantasy Spin: Carr has flashed at times and has shown the ability to be a low-end QB1 when all is going well. However, the perennially rebuilding Raiders need to restock the WR cupboard and shore up the offensive line before fantasy faithful can even whisper Carr's name in the No. 1 quarterback conversation. Barring an unexpected move to bolster his receiving corps, Carr remains a fringe QB2 with more downside than positives.
