  • Jets' Josh McCown: Set to back up Darnold
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown will open the season as Sam Darnold's backup. This was pretty much assumed since the Jets traded Teddy Bridgewater to the Saints, but the assignment was confirmed Monday, when the Jets officially declared Darnold their starting QB to begin the coming season.

  • McCown completed three of eight passes for 26 yards during Thursday's 10-9 preseason loss to Philadelphia in the preseason finale. McCown will serve as the backup to Sam Darnold with Teddy Bridgewater now in New Orleans, so the Jets opted to give the veteran some valuable reps here. While McCown failed to get much going during his four drives in this game, his success as the starter in 2017 suggests he should be able to hold his own if called upon this season.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Staying in New York
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown is likely to remain with the Jets when the season begins after the team traded fellow quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to the Saints on Wednesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports. Given their respective contracts and ages, Bridgewater was always the one with the higher likelihood to get moved. Though McCown served as the Jets' primary starting quarterback in 2017 and performed admirably, he's expected to open the season as the No. 2 quarterback with the team likely to turn the offense over to first-round draft pick Sam Darnold in light of the rookie's impressive training camp.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Gets one drive Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown played one series in Friday's preseason opener against Atlanta, completing his lone pass attempt for four yards while adding a one-yard scramble in the 17-0 win. McCown started but didn't see much action in this one, as the Jets wanted to get extended looks at newcomers Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold. Both of those guys displayed excellent accuracy while tossing a touchdown apiece, so New York's quarterback competition remains far from over. McCown's the frontrunner to start in Week 1 at this point, but he'll have to play well in future preseason contests to keep the job.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Ready for dual role
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown (hand) intends to help with Sam Darnold's development while also competing against the rookie for the starting job, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports. McCown figures to take the first snap with the starting offense when training camp begins, but Darnold and Teddy Bridgewater also figure to get their fair share of opportunities. McCown and Bridgewater probably knew what they were signing up for, as the Jets never bothered to hide their intention of drafting a quarterback in the first round. McCown likely has made a full recovery from the broken left hand that brought his 2017 campaign to an early end.
