As a free agent, he's expected to have many suitors.
Now, as a result of the arbitrator's ruling, McCarron will not only be credited for a fourth season of service in the National Football League, but he'll also be eligible for back pay for the time he spent on the NFI list.
"It's just a blessing", he told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

That said, Macron says he has not seen any proof on the attacks, suggesting this isn't going to be used as an idle excuse to justify military intervention.
McCarron spent time on the non-football injury list his rookie season, which prevented him from accruing a year of service.
By keeping him on the NFI list for the maximum duration they're allowed to before placing him on the active roster, the Bengals not only prevented McCarron from counting 2014 as an accrued season towards free agency, but they were also able to pay him less.
Had McCarron lost the grievance he would have become a restricted free agent meaning Cincinnati could've matched any offer sheet or received draft pick compensation from the team that signs him should they not match an offer.

Although ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir had yet to skate, Daleman's performance guaranteed Canada the top spot. In the pairs short program, the US also placed fourth, earning seven points for both of the first night's events.
McCarron's sample size is a bit small considering all that happened since he was taken with the 164th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. That's all I've ever wanted. However, he did return to participate in minicamp before being placed on the NFI list before training camp. I'm just super excited. While McCarron isn't necessarily the player most believe they will target, if someone like the Browns signs him, it does make it more likely the Cardinals can land another they want to sign.
McCarron has contended several times that he wants to be a starter, and initially thought he could be traded before the 2017 season.
With the principal driver of the deal, Browns head coach Hue Jackson, still in place, Cleveland figures to have heavy interest in signing McCarron. That's the chance he's been waiting for all along.
