The Cowboys still have a rather expensive veteran backup quarterback on the books, but they’re looking at another one.
Unlike unrestricted free agents who can’t travel (or even make plans to, wink, wink), McCown is free now since the Browns cut him.
The 37-year-old McCown is a trusted backup, who started 11 games for the Browns the last two years. He has also played for the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Panthers, Bears and Buccaneers.
The Cowboys are going to need such a player once they part ways with Tony Romo, whenever they do that.
