  • Josh McCown Would Return To Jets

    New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown said he is "fine" with returning to the Jets in 2018. McCown knows the Jets are in play to draft a quarterback with the sixth overall pick in the 2018 draft and seems willing to be a bridge quarterback if that ends up being the case. Coming off the best season of his career in 2017, McCown is likely a contingency plan for the Jets if they miss out on Kirk Cousins in free agency.

  • Josh McCown Wants To Keep Playing

    New York Jets impending free-agent quarterback Josh McCown, who will be 39 in 2018, said he wants to continue playing. He said he'd also like to return to the Jets. "Right now, that's how it's looking," McCown said when asked if he 100 percent wants to play. "At this time of the year, I go through those conversations with my family, talk with them through that, pray through that." In 13 games for the Jets, McCown set career highs in completion percentage (67.3), passing yards (2,926), passing touchdowns (18) and rushing touchdowns (five). After breaking his hand late in the season, McCown said he is "healing up" and is a "few weeks away" from being 100 percent. The Jets brass is also interested in re-signing McCown, as he'd be a great mentor and bridge quarterback if Gang Green selects another QB early in this year's draft. Even after McCown played well above expectations in 2017, if he's re-signed and opens the 2018 season as the starter again, he won't be very attractive to fantasy owners.

  • Jets Open To Bringing Back Josh McCown

    Quarterback Josh McCown was originally looked at as an afterthought on the New York Jets prior to the 2017 season with the team desperately doing whatever they could to hand the starting gig to Christian Hackenberg. With Hackenberg tripping over himself at every step, though, combined with McCown's surprisingly solid play, McCown played himself into QB1 relevance prior to getting hurt late in the year. With no better options (at least, until free agency and/or the draft), Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan is open to bringing back McCown for another go in 2018. Of course, this has Ryan Fitzpatrick of 2016 deja vu written all over it. McCown is coming off a career year at age 38, so the chances of him playing at such a high level and remaining healthy for as long as he did at age 39 are slim. Still, he could be a nice mentor for a young QB if the Jets do acquire one.
