Jets' Josh McCown: Starting job under some threat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown is still the favorite to start at quarterback this season, but his underwhelming showing during minicamp didn't help widen the gap on Christian Hackenberg, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

McCown, who signed a one-year deal with New York after appearing in five games for the Browns last season, is being pegged as the Jets' defacto starter given their lack of quality options behind him. However, after the 37-year-old wasn't as crisp as anticipated during minicamp, when Hackenberg actually overachieved, his grip on the starting gig could be loosening. In the end, though, McCown's play during training camp and the preseason will ultimately determine whether he wins the job, leaving much to be monitored going forward.

Jets' Josh McCown: Will compete for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown will compete with Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg during training camp for the starting quarterback job, ESPN.com reports.

McCown signed a one-year contract with the Jets back in March, and while it has always been expected that he will be the Week 1 starter, head coach Todd Bowles made it clear Wednesday that it will be an open competition. Given the struggles of Petty last season and the team's lack of trust to even give Hackenberg a shot, McCown certainly has to be viewed as the frontrunner.

Jets' Josh McCown: GM won't comment on starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan deferred to head coach Todd Bowles when asked if McCown will enter training camp as the starter, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

McCown signed a one-year contract Monday, joining 2015 fourth-rounder Bryce Petty (shoulder) and 2016 second-rounder Christian Hackenberg in the Jets' quarterback room. The 37-year-old likely will enter training camp as the favorite for the starting gig, but there should at least be some form of competition to give the younger signal-callers a shot to win the job on a rebuilding team. Given his age, injury history and the nature of his team's current roster, McCown is unlikely to make it through the season as the starter even if he wins the Week 1 job.

Jets' Josh McCown: Officially signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown agreed to a one-year contract with the Jets on Monday, his agent, Mike McCartney, reports.

After visiting with the team over the weekend, McCown officially put pen to paper Monday on a deal that will bring him to New York City to play for the Jets. He's made previous stops in Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Chicago over the past five years and has proven to be a valuable backup quarterback as well as a solid fill-in starter when called upon. However, the 37-year-old offers little upside at this point in his career and, while he initially slots in at No. 1 on the depth chart, is not the long-term solution at quarterback and his signing shouldn't prevent New York from considering a signal caller in the early rounds of this year's draft.

Josh McCown: Visiting with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown will visit with the Jets on Friday and Saturday, ESPN.com reports.

With free agent Geno Smith expected to join the other New York football team, the Jets are left with a woefully inexperienced quarterback group consisting of 2016 second-rounder Christian Hackenberg and 2015 fourth-rounder Bryce Petty. The addition of McCown would provide some veteran stability without dissuading the Jets from pursuing another QB to add to the pack. The 37-year-old McCown has proven to be a high-end backup and low-end starter in the latter stage of his career, which has included strong showings for the 2013 Bears and 2015 Browns. New York might provide McCown with his best shot to earn a Week 1 starting job.
