Jets express interest in Josh McCown

With only Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg on the roster, the Jets need one or two quarterbacks. One of the quarterbacks they get could be Josh McCown.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have expressed some interest in veteran Josh McCown.

McCown, who turns 38 on July 4, spent the last two seasons with the Browns. He also has played for the Buccaneers, Bears, Panthers, Raiders, Lions, and Cardinals.

The Texas native visited the Cowboys last week, but left without signing a contract. Possibly because the Cowboys still haven’t decided what to do with Tony Romo.

Until then, McCown can go elsewhere. Including the Jets, where he’d instantly be the best option on the roster.

    Not heading to the HOF but I’m a big Josh McCown fan. Just seems like the best dude ever. Couldn’t care less about the teams he’s on but I root for him wherever he goes. Best of luck to him.

    If the Jets or Cowboys (or someone else) signs him, he will have played for a full 25% of the league.

    Heck of an accomplishment, actually.

    I used to think Mark Sanchez was the luckiest guy on the planet, because even though he was a bad QB he got the big money, had male model good looks, lived in New York, was a media darling, and dated the hottest supermodels. But McCown gives him a real run for the money – Josh has been the poster boy for mediocrity for 15 years, and yet for the past few he’s had half the NFL teams fighting for him like he’s the second coming of Dan Marino.

    The NFL; where total mediocrity is the new normal.

    As a jets fan, i’m seriously ashamed at the shameLESS number of quarterbacks the jets have sniffed around this offseason. Basically a new quarterback for every day of free agency so far

    Trade #12, Osweiler, and next years 2nd for Jets pick (6?)???

    Josh is singing that old Hank Snow song, “I’ve been Everywhere, Man.”

    If i’m a Jets fan, I’m hoping the interest is in him being a QB coach.

    I’d go with Mc Cown over Smoking Jay Cutler in a heartbeat. For those of you unfamiliar with Smoking Jay, Google Smoking Jay Cutler, then click the IMAGES option and you’ll see what I’m referring to. Jay’s a Marlboro man off the field and on!

    Forget it. Chase Daniel is already heading to NJ.

    Jets must want the first pick of 2018.

    Go for it Jets. You can’t find a better locker room guy who will also play his butt off when his number is called. Always prepared to play. Always a class act.

    Good luck where ever you land, Josh.
