CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Former Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton issued a public statement Sunday afternoon following his release from the team on Thursday.
Dalton posted to Instagram:
“Thank you Cincinnati for the past 9 years. There are countless memories that will be with me forever. I am thankful for the friendships, my teammates, coaches, and the organization. Y’all pushed me to be a better everyday.
"I am blessed that we are on this journey together. We will always cherish our time in Cincinnati. Who Dey!”
Dalton spoke to Bengals.com Friday, saying, “I’ve given everything to the organization, the city, my family has given so much to the city. We didn’t take our position and our platform lightly.”
The Texas native signed a deal with the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.
His release from the Bengals was expected after the team drafted LSU quarterback Joe Burrow as the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
