Josh McCown News

Josh McCown    QB  Jets

 

 

Brian Costello of the New York Post doesn't think it's a "sure thing" that Josh McCown will start Week 1. It's the second time in three days that a Jets reporter has expressed skepticism in McCown after ESPN's Rich Cimini said Friday that the perceived gap between McCown and Christian Hackenberg "isn't as wide as we thought." Given the reports of Hackenberg routinely hitting unsuspecting reporters with errant passes at OTAs, you have to wonder just how badly McCown must be playing for Hackenberg to be gaining ground on him. The same goes for Bryce Petty, who has sunk to third on the team's QB depth chart. In addition to having the league's worst quarterback situation, the Jets may also have the league's thinnest receiving corps. This is shaping up to be a train wreck year in East Rutherford.

McCown is still the favorite to start at quarterback this season, but his underwhelming showing during minicamp didn't help widen the gap on Christian Hackenberg, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes said Josh McCown has been "far and away" the best quarterback at Jets OTAs. Hughes qualifies the statement by pointing out he has only been allowed to watch two practices so far, but the comment is not at all surprising because McCown is actually an NFL quarterback. Unfortunately, McCown has struggled to stay healthy in recent years, meaning we will likely see Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty at some point this season.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes Josh McCown is the "heavy favorite" to start. McCown starting has been the expectation since he signed in March, but the Jets plan to give all three quarterbacks equal reps during OTAs and have continued to say there is an open competition. While Cimini does expect there to be a competition, he thinks McCown "will be the clear-cut front-runner" by the end of the offseason program. Even so, McCown has struggled to stay on the field in recent years, so it is likely we will see Christian Hackenberg at some point this season.

Josh McCown said his "goal" is to win the starting job, but he is also happy to mentor Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg. "I look forward to every day coming in and working with Hack and Bryce, and trying to give away the things that I learned in my career," McCown said. "That is something I believe in as a person, not just inside football, but in every walk of life." Coach Todd Bowles has promised an open competition which McCown is the heavy favorite to win, but that battle will not stop McCown from helping Petty and especially Hackenberg get ready to play. It will not be a surprise if all three make starts this season.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't commit to Josh McCown as the team's starting quarterback. Maccagnan said that decision will be made by coach Todd Bowles. He added that it's "highly unlikely" the Jets will add another quarterback in free agency but acknowledged that drafting one is a possibility. McCown is still the odds-on favorite to start but it's a near certainty that his body will break down at some point. That would open the door for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg to make starts later in the year.
