The Buffalo Bills traded quarterback AJ McCarron to the Oakland Raiders for a 2019 fifth-round draft pick on Saturday.
The Raiders, who will owe McCarron his fully guaranteed, $900,000 base salary this season, also waived quarterback Connor Cook on Saturday.
In March, the Bills signed the 27-year-old McCarron to a two-year, $10 million contract, which included a $4 million signing bonus, after trading starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Browns.
McCarron can also earn an additional $4.5 million this season in playing-time incentives from the Raiders.
AJ’s wife, the very famous Katherine Webb McCarron, went straight to Instagram to say thank you to the Buffalo fans.
The Bills now are down to a choice between Nathan Peterman and rookie Josh Allen to be the team’s starting quarterback for Week 1. Good luck Bills, you should have kept AJ just to have Katherine in the stands. That’s always a good thing.
