The Jets have plenty of questions for 2017. One could be answered soon.
The Cowboys previously brought McCown to Dallas for a visit. He makes plenty of sense as the mentor and backup to Dak Prescott; however, signing McCown before resolving the Tony Romo situation could make it even harder to finagle a draft pick for a player who’ll inevitably be released if/when he’s not traded.
Why they don’t is a different issue for a different post, but it likely has more to do with selling tickets and/or the political ideologies of ownership than Kaepernick’s current abilities. Currently, it appears that McCown is on track to become a Jet, putting the franchise’s offense in the hands of a well-traveled veteran who is underrated.
The only problem is that the rest of the roster could be overmatched.
