Jets' Josh McCown: Contemplating future
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown is unsure if he'll return for an 18th season in 2019. In a message on his agent Mike McCartney's personal Twitter account, McCown wrote that he "would like to take more time before making the commitment."

McCown received significant playing time midseason when 2018 first-rounder Sam Darnold missed time due to a sprained foot, but he didn't make much of an impact on box scores, completing 55 percent of his passes for 539 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions. With Darnold the unquestioned starter, there's no guarantee for another quarterback to receive playing time, so McCown again would serve as a mentor to his young teammate, if he opts to play. Otherwise, the Jets will be in the market for a veteran signal-caller with Davis Webb the only other option on the roster.

Jets' Josh McCown: Throws for only one touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown passed 539 yards, a touchdown and four interceptions across three starts in 2018.

McCown's one touchdown was his career low for any season in which he started at least one game. After a career year in 2017, McCown was unseated as the Jets' starting quarterback by first-round pick Sam Darnold entering 2018. McCown will be entering his age-40 season if he decides to continue playing for the 2019 campaign.

Jets' Josh McCown: Back to backup duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown failed to complete his lone pass attempt in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo.

McCown presided over New York's second drive after Sam Darnold limped off to the locker room, but Darnold was able to reclaim his spot under center after that. As long as the rookie quarterback's foot injury doesn't flare up against the Texans in Week 15, McCown should remain relegated to a bench role.

Jets' Josh McCown: Headed for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown is slated to serve as the Jets' No. 2 quarterback Sunday against the Bills with Sam Darnold (foot) cleared to reclaim the starting role, a source told Brian Costello of the New York Post.

Coach Todd Bowles declined to name a Week 14 starter at the conclusion of Friday's session, but there was never really any doubt it would be anyone other than Darnold after the rookie first-round pick practiced without restrictions this week. With Darnold's sprained right foot now behind him, he'll likely be under center for the final four games in attempt to carry some momentum into 2019, relegating McCown to backup duties. McCown was thoroughly uninspiring during his three-game run as starter, completing 55 percent of his throws for 4.9 yards per attempt and 1:4 TD:INT as the Jets went 0-3. The 39-year-old will become a free agent after the season and seems likely to call it a career.

Jets' Josh McCown: Cleared for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown (back) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Fellow quarterback Sam Darnold (foot) also practiced fully Friday for the third straight day and avoided an injury designation for the weekend, clearing the way for him to return from a three-game absence. Despite Darnold's lack of limitations and status as the team's franchise signal-caller, coach Todd Bowles wasn't ready to commit to the rookie starting in Week 14 when he met with the media Friday, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Instead, Bowles said he would wait until Sunday to make a decision on that front, but it would be a major surprise if the 39-year-old McCown drew another start at a healthy Darnold's expense. Over his three appearances filling in for the first-round pick, McCown threw four interceptions and completed only 55 percent of his passes for 4.9 yards per attempt.
