The Cincinnati Bengals have publicly supporting quarterback Andy Dalton. That trend continued over the weekend at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson spoke to Bengals.com saying he liked what the 26-year-old quarterback brings to the team.
“I like Andy. I like what Andy brings to the table for us. Andy can do it all. I haven’t seen anything he can’t do. He ran with the ball last year. Obviously he threw it all over the yard, and obviously he ran our football team. At the end of the day, that’s the characteristics that we’re looking for in a quarterback for our football team as well as our organization.” said Jackson.
Entering his fourth NFL season Dalton has been asked to do more than some believed he was capable of when he was selected in the 2011 NFL Draft. Now the Bengals are looking for a way to cut down on his turnovers.
Last season Dalton threw 20 interceptions and lost three fumbles during the regular season. In the Bengals opening round Playoff loss Dalton tossed two interceptions and fumbled twice, one of which was recovered by San Diego.
