There were a handful of trades that got completed before Tuesday afternoon’s deadline, but there was also one that didn’t get done. The Bengals and Browns agreed to a trade that would send quarterback A.J. McCarron to Cleveland and the Bengals let the league know shortly before the 4 p.m. ET deadline, but the Browns didn’t and the league wouldn’t let the trade go through once they got around to it. McCarron had heard from his agent that a deal was happening before getting word of the complication that left him in Cincinnati. McCarron shared his reaction to the rollercoaster when he met with the media on Wednesday and said he was thankful to Bengals owner Mike Brown for being willing to send him somewhere he would play.
