The Buffalo Bills have signed quarterback AJ McCarron to a two-year deal, the team announced Wednesday.

McCarron joins 2017 fifth-round pick Nathan Peterman on the Bills' QB depth chart after Buffalo's trade of Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns was made official Wednesday.

McCarron, 27, was a free agent after winning a grievance filed against the Cincinnati Bengals last year to determine whether he had been incorrectly put on the non-football injury list as a rookie.

McCarron played in five regular-season games in the 2015 season and started three, completing 66.4 percent of his passes for 854 yards and six touchdowns.
