Preston Brown is set to hit free agency in March, but that is not stopping the linebacker from playing Buffalo Bills general manager.

Brown recently spoke with Jeremy Rauch of Cincinnati’s FOX 19 about a wide variety of subjects. Perhaps the most interesting comment made by Brown, a Cincinnati native, was that the Bengals should trade Andy Dalton to the Bills if they’re not happy with the quarterback.

Dalton played a big role in ending the Bills’ 17-year playoff drought. The Bengals quarterback threw a late-game touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd in the regular season finale against the Baltimore Ravens. Shortly after Dalton ended the Ravens’ season, Bills fans donated generously to the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation.

Buffalo is expected to move on from Tyrod Taylor this offseason and the team could find his replacement in the draft, free agency or via trade. The Bills will keep all of their options open, but is Dalton a realistic possibility?

Anything can happen in the NFL, but there is no indication that the Bengals would move Dalton despite Brown saying “everybody talkin’ about go trade for him.” Bleacher Report’s Chris Simms predicted that A.J. McCarron, the Bengals’ No. 2 quarterback, would start for the Bengals at some point in 2018, but he never predicted the quarterback would exit Cincinnati this offseason.

Dalton probably won’t be the Bills’ starting quarterback in 2018, but Brown was correct about one thing. The quarterback would be treated like a king in Buffalo.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is among five finalists for the NFL Players Association’s Byron “Whizzer” White Award.

The annual award recognizes players for exceptional community service in their team cities and hometowns.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller are the other finalists.

The winner, who will receive $100,000 for his foundation or a charity of his choice, will be announced Feb. 1 at the NFLPA’s Super Bowl news conference.

The award is named for former NFL running back and Supreme Court Justice Byron Raymond “Whizzer” White.

Dalton and his wife provide financial assistance through the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation to families of seriously ill and physically challenged children.

A spike in donations to the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation came from the most unlikely source on Monday morning.

Dalton’s 49-yard touchdown throw to Tyler Boyd in a fourth-and-12 situation on Sunday night not only sealed a win against the Ravens to knock them out of the playoffs, but it also secured the Bills’ first playoff berth since 1999.

Fans in Buffalo were understandably thrilled, and they wanted to let Dalton know it. While the Bills organization promised to send the Bengals some Buffalo wings, the fans decided to donate to Dalton’s cause.

“I think I’m the hottest guy in Buffalo right now,” Dalton joked to the media on Monday. “According to my Twitter, I think everybody’s loving us right now. Obviously that’s a crazy fan base, and they’re all pretty excited.”

Dalton pulled out his phone to check the numbers on donations to his foundation, noting that most of them were in $17 increments. He thought about it for a moment, then he realized why.

The $17 dollars represent the 17 seasons between playoff berths for the Bills.

“We’re appreciative of that. Obviously they’re helping out a good cause. It’s been pretty fun to see the reaction we’ve gotten,” Dalton said.

Dalton tweeted Monday evening: “In the 24 hours since the 1st donation came in, over 2500 donors and just over $57,000 and counting! Last update for the night! I will update tomorrow. We can’t thank y’all enough!”

On Tuesday morning, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation tweeted that they’ve raised more than $100,000.

Dalton and his wife, Jordan, formed the foundation after he was drafted by the Bengals in 2011. The foundation “provides support, resources, opportunities and life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families.”

Many of the foundation’s community outreach programs revolve around helping children, especially those with special needs, and their families in greater Cincinnati.

Although it’s hard to determine where the idea to donate to the Daltons’ foundation started, the idea appeared to gain traction on social media shortly after the Bengals sealed the Bills’ playoff fate and continued through Monday afternoon.

The foundation issued a statement Monday:

“Buffalo fans are a class act,” it read. “Thank you for showing your appreciation to Andy Dalton by supporting the families we serve. All of your donations will go to our outreach programs. We can do more with your help.”

Andy Dalton had about the worst start possible to the 2017 season, throwing four interceptions in the first two games as the Cincinnati Bengals slumped to an 0-2 start. He’s been better since then, tossing seven touchdowns to just two picks in the past three games before the Bengals entered their bye in Week 6.

Dalton is coming off another strong performance, throwing for 328 yards and a touchdown on 22-of-36 passing in a Week 5 win over the Buffalo Bills. He continues to lean on A.J. Green as his favorite target, which is a winning formula as long as Green stays healthy.

Fantasy impact: Dalton is never going to have a consistent fantasy ceiling, which makes him a hard sell as an every-week starter. That said, owners missing Aaron Rodgers and going through the bye weeks could find him useful as a crunch-time streamer.

Dalton doesn’t have a desirable matchup this week, though, with the Pittsburgh Steelers giving up the second-fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks. Dalton is more of a QB2 against an underrated Steelers defense.

Finding a franchise quarterback in the NFL is not easy. For some teams, decades of trying to find the right signal caller can lead a front office into making desperate decisions. Enter the Cincinnati Bengals. After several failed attempts that included names like David Klingler, Jeff Blake, Akili Smith, Jon Kitna and a valiant effort from Carson Palmer, the franchise opted to settle. Enter Andy Dalton.

Through 98 regular season games, Dalton has recorded a total of 58 wins, 38 losses and 2 ties since joining Cincinnati in 2011 and an overall quarterback rating of  89.0. Rather pedestrian numbers when you consider 10 of those wins came against the Cleveland Browns.

So synonymous has Dalton become with the notion of average, a rating concept for quarterbacks was born known as the Dalton Line. If your quarterback is ranked lower than Dalton, the bare minimum of acceptability, it is time to find a new one.

Unfortunately for Bengals fans, Dalton has been far from average when facing Pittsburgh, he has played well below the Dalton Line. Of all the teams in the league, none have beaten him more often than the Steelers, with Dalton winning just three of the 12 games he has appeared in. Discounting the teams he has played a mere handful of times, only the Baltimore Ravens have forced a lower average quarterback rating from Dalton than Pittsburgh.

In those 12 games, only once has Dalton eclipsed his career average quarterback rating. In 2014, he had a performance worthy of a 128.8 rating, but the Bengals still lost 42-21. That game was very much the anomaly and Dalton has recorded five games against the Steelers when his rating did not exceed 65.0.

Dalton has almost matched his touchdowns passes to interception ratio when playing the Steelers at 13 touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Almost good enough for one of each a game and far outside his career ratios based on totals of 149 touchdowns to 87 interceptions. An average of 6.34 yards per pass attempt (YPA) versus Pittsburgh is beaten only by Houston Texans among teams that have played Dalton more than three times.

Even though he has been dominated by Pittsburgh throughout his career, Dalton sees no more significance in a Steelers matchup than any other game he plays in a season.

Perhaps his lackadaisical attitude is to blame in part for his poor efforts in these contest, but in fairness, his lack of talent is more likely the root cause. Despite his terrible record in the AFC North, victories over the Browns aside, the Bengals opted to extend Dalton’s contract through the 2020 season, a sign the front office is prepared to settle at the position for a while longer. Steelers fans can only hope Dalton will see a third contract in Cincinnati.
