On Thursday, Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron scored two victories against his employer. The most notable, of course, is that he will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The other W came in the way of restitution for the year he spent on the non-football injury (NFI) list. McCarron will recoup his lost salary for that time, but the Bengals will not be fined for the move, Mike Florio of PFT reports. “The NFL Management Council represented the club in the grievance,” league spokesman Brian McCarthy said via email. When asked whether this means that the league agreed with the team’s decision to place McCarron on the NFI list in 2004, McCarthy responded in the affirmative. McCarron did not agree with the decision, of course, and an arbitrator sided with him against th eteam.
