Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron will learn as soon as today whether he’ll be a restricted free agent or an unrestricted free agent in March. If it’s the latter, he could have a suitor in Colorado.

Appearing on Wednesday’s PFT Live, Vic Lombardi if Altitude Sports Network said that the Broncos would be interested in McCarron, if McCarron becomes a free-and-clear free agent. (The NFL contends that McCarron’s rookie season on the non-football injury list keeps him from becoming an unrestricted free agent.)

The Broncos know what McCarron can do. Replacing injured starter Andy Dalton in December 2015, McCarron forced overtime during a pivotal Monday night game that ultimately paved the way for Denver to claim the No. 1 seed.
