From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
The Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday quickly filled the need left open by the departure of AJ McCarron to Buffalo. They signed former USC quarterback Matt Barkley in a deal to compete to backup Andy Dalton.
Barkley was drafted in the fourth round by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013. This will mark his fifth team in six seasons.
His only starting experience game during a six-game run with the Bears in 2016. Chicago went 1-5 during the season with eight touchdowns against 14 interceptions and a QB rating of 68.3.
While at USC from 2009-12, Barkley threw for 116 touchdowns and 12,327 yards.
