Out of respect for Dalton, the Bengals apparently hope to move him to a situation he's comfortable with and will update him on market developments.
Dalton has spent all nine seasons of his career in Cincinnati, but he'll become expendable if the Bengals draft a quarterback first overall, as expected.
The 32-year-old started 13 games in 2019, throwing for 3,494 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He was briefly benched in favor of rookie Ryan Finley, who struggled over three starts.
Dalton is signed through 2020 with a non-guaranteed base salary of $17.5 million.
