BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Former Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron signed a two-year deal with the Buffalo Bills.

The team didn't immediately disclose the terms of the deal. 

McCarron became a free agent after the league sided with him in a grievance against the Bengals, finding that he had accrued a year toward free agency during his rookie season in Cincinnati. 

The quarterback filed that grievance last November, days after a paperwork goof-up apparently spoiled a plan to trade him to the Cleveland Browns.

McCarron, 27, played just 11 games in his four years in Cincinnati, but is considered by some to be a good quarterback to start. He completed seven of 14 passes last season. In 2015, his busiest season to date, he had a 66.4 completion percentage.
