Josh McCown’s visit with Jets ends without a deal

The Jets and quarterback Josh McCown spent the weekend discussing the possibility that McCown would sign with the team as a free agent, but it appears Monday will find McCown still unsigned.

According to multiple reports, McCown’s visit with the Jets ended on Sunday without a deal that would give McCown a seat in this year’s quarterback derby. The expectation is that the two sides will remain in conversation in the days to come.

The Cowboys have shown interest in McCown as a backup, but there doesn’t seem to be much chance that anything happens on that front until there’s been a resolution to the Tony Romo saga. Absent that move, there might not be much impetus for the Jets to change any offer they may have made while discussing contract parameters with McCown over the weekend.

There have been reports of Jets interest in Jay Cutler as well. Cutler has not visited with the team since being released by the Bears.

    Unreal. The guy has earned 32 million dollars mostly as a fill in and back up. Only in America.

    Backup QB is the best job in the NFL.

    He’ll get a seat somewhere. He’s a good teammate who still has value!!

    Dude has taken so many teams for a ride that he could retire pretty rich now.

    2 yard tom can now relax and continue to be the top dog in the division with ease.

    I see Tom’s renting space in someone’s head……

    The Jets need to go with Petty and Hackenberg.

    1 – this will enable them to go 1-15 and get the #1 pick and draft a top QB prospect

    2 – Petty and Hackenberg were both drafted by the current GM. When both are shown to be busts, it will hopefully expose him as a below average GM who should be fired after 3 mediocre years.

    3 – the Jets shouldn’t waste cap money on a bum like McCown, save it for the future

    If Hackenberg started all 16 games this coming season he would have one of the worst seasons in NFL history. The guy sucks. He sucked in college. Not being a jerk, but he just isn’t any good.

    I’ll tell you how it ends. Jets record, 3-13.

    —————————

    Better to find out now that string it out over 4 years.
    Let him start after Bryce Petty ends up on IR.
    If he’s awful then the Jets get a high pick in 2018.
    If he’s greatly improved then maybe he can be a starting QB.
    Probably he’s a bust.
