In a move that should surprise nobody, the Cincinnati Bengals are releasing long-time starting quarterback Andy Dalton. With Joe Burrow drafted as the QB of the future and Dalton's contract taking up space, this move has been projected all offseason.

The late timing of this release, however, means that most teams have locked up their starting quarterbacks for the 2020 season, somewhat limiting the suitors for Dalton.

There are still some teams likely to be interested, based on the odd available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Andy Dalton Patriots Odds

The New England Patriots are the odds-on favorites to be Dalton's next team, at -135. This implies almost a 60 percent chance that Dalton goes to New England.

Jarrett Stidham is currently the favorite to be the Patriots' Week 1 starter, but that could quickly change if they add a veteran like Dalton, who could keep them competitive in the AFC playoff hunt.

Andy Dalton Jaguars Odds

Second to the Patriots, the Jacksonville Jaguars check in at +150. They have a promising young quarterback in Gardner Minshew, but the 2019 sixth-round pick is far from a lock to be a long-term answer, and Dalton could keep them competitive while giving Minshew some more time to develop.

Andy Dalton Steelers Odds

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the only other team that really seems to be in the running at +650. They have a veteran QB in Ben Roethlisberger, but Dalton would make for a strong back-up option. That's especially important after Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges proved that neither is a viable starting option with Big Ben hurt in 2019.

The only other teams with available odds are the Las Vegas Raiders and Washington Redskins, who are each massive +3000 underdogs. This really looks to be a three-team race, with the Patriots and Jaguars by far the most likely teams to sign Dalton.
