Josh McCown News

Josh McCown    QB  Jets

 

 

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.

Jets signed QB Josh McCown, formerly of the Browns, to a one-year, $6-million contract. The $6 million is fully guaranteed, and he can earn an additional $7 million in playtime and team-based incentives. Set to turn 38 in July, McCown is the definition of a stopgap option who the Jets will hope can give them competent quarterback play while they revamp their quarterback room. Unfortunately, McCown seems to get hurt every time he touches the field at this point in his career, making it very unlikely he lasts a full season. Unless they are content to watch Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty start multiple games, the Jets still have some work to do.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports Josh McCown's visit with the Jets is "going very well" and the two sides have "discussed contract parameters." It seems each side is serious about a deal. In theory, McCown is a good stop-gap option and mentor as the Jets attempt to develop Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, but McCown has not lasted more than a few games before getting hurt the last couple years. If the 37-year-old ends up being the Jets' only addition at quarterback, Petty or Hackenberg likely will see the field in 2017.
