Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton is viewing his one-year deal as a chance to set up the second half of his career as a starter, while doing what he can to help the team in the backup QB role this season. Dalton knows the Cowboys are Dak Prescott's team, but in a conference call with reporters explained how the opportunity to be coached by Mike McCarthy and try and help Dallas with a championship was a great chance to learn and try and land a starting job next offseason. Dalton is a three-time Pro-Bowler, but the Bengals moved on from him after selecting Joe Burrow first overall in this year's draft after three-straight losing seasons. He won't carry much fantasy value riding the bench, but dynasty owners should be patient as we've likely not seen the last of Dalton as a starter in the NFL.
Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton's contract is official, Monday, May 4. The deal is a one-year, $3 million pact, with an additional $4 million available via incentives through reaching playing-time benchmarks during the regular season and postseason, as well as the team making the playoffs.
Former Cincinnati Bengals long-time quarterback Andy Dalton is signing a one-year deal worth up to $7 million with the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, according to a source. The deal includes $3 million guaranteed. Most expected Dalton to land in Jacksonville with his ex-head coach in Jay Gruden as the offensive coordinator there, but Dalton instead chooses to go home to Texas to back up Dak Prescott for a year. If Prescott were to get hurt and Dalton stepped in, he'd definitely be an intriguing QB2 in two-quarterback leagues with a stacked offense in Dallas. The Cowboys had one of the best drafts last week when wideout CeeDee Lamb fell into their laps, and now they'll have one of the better backup options in the league as insurance for the franchise man in Prescott.

The New York Jets have shown some level of interest in free agent quarterback Andy Dalton, according to Rich Cimini. The team has categorized their interest as "due diligence." 22-year-old Sam Darnold is expected to remain the starter in 2020, but the team wants to solidity the backup role. Both David Fales and fourth-round pick James Morgan are unproven talent with little professional experience. It's unclear whether or not Dalton would be interested in a backup role in New York. Regardless, it sounds like the Jets are covering their bases and throwing their hat into the ring.
Free agent QB Andy Dalton has piqued the interest of the New York Jets, who are doing to their 'due diligence' with their most experienced backup QB David Fales having yet to start an NFL game.
Free agent QB Andy Dalton (Bengals) said the fact that other teams knew Cincinnati was drafting QB Joe Burrow with the No. 1-overall pick limited his trade and other options. 'There were several different factors,' Dalton said, via the team's website. 'This year there were a good amount of quarterbacks that were available. I think it would have worked out differently if I had been a free agent when the new league year started. I was still under contact and that hurt me. I'm sure teams knew they were going to take a quarterback No. 1 and they would release me and there was no reason to rush into anything.'
The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly interested in former Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who Cincinnati released on Thursday. Dalton's coming off a 2019 year in which he started 13 games for Bengals, finishing with 3495 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions while completing 59.5 percent of his passes. Dalton's not a high ceiling player at this point in his career, but would be a capable veteran backup to second-year passer Gardner Minshew II, or someone who could start should Minshew either get injured or prove to be ineffective in the starting role. Still, Dalton's upside is that of a low-end fantasy QB2, though Jacksonville might be one of the few places other than New England where he'd be a serious threat to get playing time.
Free-agent QB Andy Dalton (Bengals) could be an option for the Jacksonville Jaguars and offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.
Updating an earlier report, Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton's release freed up $17.7 million in salary cap space.
The Cincinnati Bengals have released quarterback Andy Dalton after nine seasons with the team. Dalton, who was due $17.7 million on what would have been his final season on a six-year deal, threw for 3,494 yards and 16 touchdowns (14 interceptions) despite the season-ending injury of wideout A.J. Green (foot) as well as playing behind an unproductive offensive line. With a few teams in search of a signal-caller, notably New England, Miami, and potentially Jacksonville, Dalton's next move is worth keeping an eye on, especially those who have him on their dynasty league roster.
The Cincinnati Bengals are releasing QB Andy Dalton.
Fantasy Spin: With little to no interest on the trade market, it will be interesting to see which teams have interest in Dalton on the free-agent market.
The Cincinnati Bengals, who have received interest into the No. 1 overall pick of the draft, will not trade it away and will make the pick Thursday night, according to sources. The Bengals have been pretty adamant about keeping the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, and they are fully expected to take LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with that pick. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Bengals president Mike Brown welcomed Burrow to the team on Wednesday. Andy Dalton was benched in 2019 but ended the season at the starter, but the team is keeping its options open with Burrow coming on board. With the COVID-19 pandemic possibly wiping out all offseason workouts, keeping Dalton as an insurance policy is a realistic possibility.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are interested in signing Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton if he is released and if the price is right. The Jaguars hired former Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden in January, but Dalton would likely enter the 2020 season as the backup to Gardner Minshew if he landed in Jacksonville. All options are open for Dalton right now, including a return to Cincy to serve as Joe Burrow's backup if he's taken with the first overall pick. There's a chance that Dalton is traded before or during next week's draft, too. Dalton thinks he's still an NFL-caliber starter signal-caller, but he'll most likely enter next season as a backup with the Bengals or somewhere else.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton is preparing for a multitude of options if the Bengals select LSU QB Joe Burrow with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 23. 'I truly believe they want what's best for me, but I understand it's a business, and you know how that goes,' Dalton said in a recent interview. 'With the first pick, if they take a quarterback like everyone expects, that could trigger something. There's even a scenario where I go back there.'
Fantasy Spin: In most any case, Dalton's chances of being a 2020 NFL starter are dwindling fast, and his best option might be spring trade to a team like the Jaguars or Chargers. The outlook should be a lot more definitive by the end of the month.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton could remain with the team for the 2020 season, and 'all options are still on the table' for the quarterback, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Fantasy Spin: Dalton has been the subject of trade rumors, but the Bengals continue to sit on the veteran quarterback. There is still a chance he is moved before the start of the season, but with Cincinnati expected to draft Joe Burrow with the No. 1, it seems unlikely Dalton would be starting if he is a still a Bengal come Week 1.
All options are still on the table for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. The Bengals have been open to trading him, but the possibility remains that they will also hang onto him. Dalton doesn't have guaranteed money remaining on his contract, so they are in no rush to move him. With Cincy expected to take LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with the No. 1 pick in next month's draft, Dalton would be the backup entering the 2020 season if he stays with the team. The 32-year-old was benched at one point in 2019 and completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 3,494 yards, 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his 13 starts. At this point in his career, the former TCU star has become a backup.
The New England Patriots have not discussed trading for Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton as a potential successor to QB Tom Brady.
The New England Patriots haven't discussed a trade for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, and something would have to change for them to suddenly turn their attention to him. Jarrett Stidham is currently atop the Patriots QB depth chart now that Tom Brady left in free agency to choose the Buccaneers. However, the Pats are remaining calm and aren't panicking. They could look to either Dalton or Cam Newton if either quarterback is outright released, but the more realistic plan is that they'll address their quarterback situation in the draft. It'll be weird to see New England piloted by someone other than No. 12 under center in 2020, and it will seriously hurt the fantasy upside of wide receiver Julian Edelman and all of the team's other skill players on offense. Dalton seems destined to serve as some team's backup this season.
Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton and Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles are reportedly targets for the Chicago Bears, who appear to be focused on acquiring a veteran quarterback to compete with Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job.
