Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron worked out for the Browns last week and he’s meeting with them on Tuesday, which comes as no surprise given the Browns’ need for a long-term starter at quarterback.
The Ravens and Rams hope they have those answers already on the roster, but they’ll also be checking out the former Crimson Tide starter in the coming days. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that McCarron will visit the Ravens on Wednesday and Albert Breer of NFL Network reports the Rams are scheduled to watch him work out on May 1.
McCarron’s workout with the Rams fits with reports that the team is considering drafting a quarterback to go with Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill on the 2014 roster. Bradford is returning from a torn ACL and has two years left on his deal, so a rookie would give them an option in case things go the wrong way upon his return to the lineup.
Baltimore has Joe Flacco locked up well beyond next season, but coach John Harbaugh has been open about their desire to add competition for backup Tyrod Taylor this summer. McCarron isn’t the only quarterback they’ve looked at this offseason, which would make it little surprise to see them select a quarterback at some point next month.
