Saints bring Luke McCown back for another year

Luke McCown AP

It’s a good offseason to be a McCown, and now they’ll get to see plenty of each other.

Agent Mike McCartney just tweeted out word that Luke McCown had agreed to a one-year deal to stay with the Saints.

McCown’s not hitting it big like his brother Josh McCown in Tampa Bay, and isn’t there to start, but he does give the Saints some experience as a backup.

They also have former undrafted rookie Ryan Griffin to groom, but Luke McCown gives them a seasoned safety net.

    Hope he came cheap because he’s not very impressive when he played in pre-season…

    Send in McCown.

    the above comment is false. McCown played very well for the Saints last preseason.

    The force is strong in the McCown clan

    Saints will ride Bree’s as long and hard as they can. QB’s like him don’t grow on trees by the orchard. When he hangs up his helmet for the last time, Sean Payton may too – and they’ll probably return to being the Aints for a while.

    They should start him. Maybe the McCown family has some secret formula that turns “lucky to be in the league” backups into top tier QBs.

    I don’t know if I would call Luke a “seasoned safety net,” he lost the starting job to Blaine Gabbert in Jacksonville. What does that say?

    Championship!

    I watched Brees at Purdue…watched him in San Diego…watch him in New Orleans. He’s one of my all time favorite players and I see him playing for awhile still. As long as he and Payton are there, that team is a championship contender. Whoever his backup is, is irrelevant.

    Saints will be a force this year…they have been for years but I expect 2011 form this year.

    Bears should of signed another McCown, Luke that is.

    The Saints are getting away from finesse with the release of Lance Moore, Darren Sproles, and Jed Collins and are transitioning to a more ball control, physical mindset to prepare for the inevitable life after Brees.

    The McCown brothers have the coolest jobs on the planet. When we hear about NFL roster moves we check to see how it will affect our office fantasy league teams, the McCown brothers check to see if it will make them professional football quarterbacks. Living the dream.

    The Saints are adapting to a more power running game but not because of brees. It’s because of teams like Seattle that hold receivers forever at the line of scrimmage. And their not just changing to a power running game but a short game that will also include more passes to the new fullback erik lorig.
