Raymond Anthony "AJ" McCarron, Jr. is an American football quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League.
He was drafted by the Bengals in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
He played college football at Alabama.
Following the 2013 BCS National Championship Game against Notre Dame, McCarron became the first quarterback to win back-to-back consensus national championships in the BCS era.
McCarron is one of only seven quarterbacks in history to win back-to-back titles in some form and the first quarterback to win back-to-back consecutive titles since Nebraska's Tommie Frazier in 1994 and 1995.
In addition, since his freshman/redshirt year McCarron has been associated with three national title teams under coach Nick Saban: 2009, 2011, and 2012.
