With the No. 164 pick in the NFL draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Alabama QB A.J. McCarron.
He has good pocket presence, and possesses sufficient mobility to make the first tackler miss. He lacks the arm strength to make deep passes, instead he heaves the ball downfield. Accurate on short to medium passes. He is behind Andy Dalton, who may be allowed to move on depending on McCarron's development when his rookie contract expires. Essentially a game manager who needs a strong supporting cast to succeed.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
