While the Bengals are set at the quarterback position in regards to who will be starting, they still need a backup QB now that Bruce Gradkowski will become a free agent, and there has been no word yet if they want to re-sign him. While at the NFL Scouting Combine, Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden talked about potentially finding a backup in the later rounds of this years’ NFL Draft:

"Two years ago we needed a quarterback and there were seven or eight up there that were pretty high ranked. Last year you had Luck and RG3 and Russell Wilson.
