Report: Jets Sign QB Josh McCown

The New York Jets are adding QB Josh McCown. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it's one-year deal. 

Ian Rapoport reports McCown will get $6 million from the Jets. The entire contract is guaranteed. 

The Dallas Cowboys and McCown had mutual interest, but McCown was waiting for the Cowboys to make a decision with Tony Romo. It appears Dallas took too long for McCown. 

The veteran QB can serve as a bridge starter (like he did in Cleveland) for the Jets, or as a backup QB. He should be a more reliable veteran option for the Jets than Ryan Fitzpatrick. 

Amid injures last year, McCown played in only five. He completed 54.5 percent of his passes for 1,100 yards, 6 TDs and 6 INTs. But 2015 was one his better seasons, when he completed 63.7 percent for 2,109 yards, 12 TDs and 4 INTs in eight games. He's never played in all 16 games in his NFL career.
