Somebody like Andy Dalton?

Preferably someone who doesn’t cost $17.5M

Defeats the benefit of having a QB on his rookie contract.

Just Kidding. 

 Dude is a broken down never has been.  He has won 23 games in 19 years.  One playoff appearance in 19 years. 11 different teams in 19 years.  Yeah, this is the guy I want mentoring Burrow, Jay Cutler’s backup. 

 

Nobody is proposing that McCown should play extensively. He's there to teach Burrow how to be an NFL QB. He's done that before with Darnold and others. If you have some personal objection to McCown, there are others of his ilk available. Guys like Matt Moore, Chad Henne, Colt McCoy, Case Keenum, etc.

The only real issue is Andy would be a bad citizen. The money is moot. It's for one year and if folks think Mikey is going to look for those savings to sign more talent then they've just recently started following the team. He pays his own and that's it. Without even parting ways with Andy we have over $47 MIL in cap space and that's before getting "creative". We can resign our important folks and move the cap hit to next year and beyond by paying bonuses. 

 

If Andy Dalton acts like a professional no one can argue that he's not the best backup QB we could get for JB. Now if a team is silly enough to offer us a high 2nd for Andy, then we'd have to consider it.

There is a minimum. He'd have to spend at least some of it somewhere.

How much under the minimum would parting ways with Andy put us?
